The Feelies preorder from Insound
Insound has been taking it upon themselves to rerelease classic essential vinyl singles. The Ramones, The Replacements...I'm all for this idea that these things deserve to be put out again into the world at the standard 7" single price. Like I've said before I don't need to have the original pressing, I just want the experience of being able to put that single on the record player and try to for a minute think about what it would be like to come home from preschool with this under my arm and put it on the Fisher Price turntable after hearing only god knows what in 1979.
The Feelies were one of those bands that now is on everyone's mind and playlists. They definitely started something that keeps popping up in everyone's conciousness and instrumentation. It's jerky, clean, new wave, before it was probably defined. The bottom line is you have to know about these guys, like the New York Dolls, or Slint, they are a touchstone band that changed lives. Raised Eyebrows is great, and for a B-Side? Amazing, one of my favorites.
More importantly these versions on this single are different from the album versions, so that makes this pretty much essential.
This is the original cover and not the Insound one, which is a little different.
THIS ITEM IS A PRE-ORDER. WE EXPECT IT TO SHIP ON OR BEFORE THE OCTOBER 8TH RELEASE DATE.
INSOUND EXCLUSIVE 7" REISSUE! BACK IN PRINT FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THIRTY YEARS! LIMITED!
VINYL FORMAT. The Feelies debut 7" - originally released October 8, 1979 on Rough Trade - is finally available again! A little-known gem, this single came out before the release of their first album Crazy Rhythms, but was quickly buried beneath the ensuing onslaught of Feelies fan fervor. Now you can hear it again in its original integrity, as it was always meant to be heard! Featuring the two tracks from the original single: "Fa Ce-La" b/w "Raised Eyebrows". Not to be missed! A must have for any Feelies fan.
Did we mention Insound is THE ONLY place this 7" will be available?
