"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Can someone put me out of my misery and tell me where that acoustic guitar break that was sampled at the beginning of this Rolnick track came from? SO familiar. Argh!

Used to love those old Felt albums, so this is a real treat. Thanks John.

I have not gotten a hold of any Modern Eon, but would really like to. Also, I have missed Morris Deebank, drat. Whatever happened to those Felt reissues?

I meant Maurice

@KenFromHydePark: “Wake up and die right.” In elementary school a bunch of kids had this weird phrase they would say, “Your money or your life or your bald-headed wife.” It still makes no sense, let alone out of the mouths of kids.
