i was disappointed with the go-kart mozart album, nice sleeve design (check the martin parr boring postcard bull ring), but found it rather flat. denim i remember being ok though. i have a pink felt cd, i cant remember it though. i'll play it tonight

gareth, Tuesday, 6 November 2001 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Sounds like you've got Bubblegum Perfume, Gareth - the Creation round- up. If it turns out you play it tonight and don't think much to it, I'll be only too willing to take it off your hands for a good price. Let me know!

desperate to get denim 'on ice' the song 'it fell off the back of a lorry' is one of the best songs i have ever heard.

ambrose, Wednesday, 7 November 2001 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

I love Felt (but have no records) [my bid for indie-country crossover stardom starts right there]. The albums are great, and they're pretty high up on my 'must buy' list, but I haven't actually seen them anywhere for ages...

I have Back In Denim, which is ace ("in the seventies there were Osmonds, there were lots of little Osmonds..."), but I got pissed off with the singles from 'On Ice' and never bought it.

Also have the Go-Kart Mozart album, which is patchy (but I forgive it everything for name-checking Poing by the Rotterdam Termination Source).

Felt albums on cd are very difficult to find, in my experience.

Nicole, Wednesday, 7 November 2001 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

'Denim On Ice' almost a permanent fixture in the bargain basement of the NNG R+T (and no doubt many other similar establishments.)My fave Denim track - 'We Are The New Potatoes' from their 'Novelty Rock' EP.

Nicole, the Cherry red albums are all still available on CD, on for example Amazon.co.uk. The Creation ones are out-of-print, I think, but GEMM.com has loads of them.

Thanks for the tip! That's what I get for just checking record shops.

Nicole, Wednesday, 7 November 2001 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

I have got "Absolute Classic Masterpieces" which is a kind of best of. Quite nice to listen to. The best track is the one with Liz Fraser if I remember well. Felt is a little bit a myth I feel. They sound like an amateurish band. Which can be charming. But one record in my collection is definitely enough.

alex in mainhattan, Wednesday, 7 November 2001 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Felt was great, but it seemed like it was fronted by a man who mainly provided the background. Maurice Deebank.. now that's an amazing guitarist. As was Martin Duffy on keys.

Brian MacDonald, Wednesday, 7 November 2001 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Mick Bund was also in Felt for a while. Whatever happened to Maurice Deebank...one of my favourite guitarists of all time (I might even say "favourite of all time" were it not for Vini Reilly). The strangest Felt album has got to be "Train Across the City" - all instrumentals, Lawrence isn't on it! Some of the tracks are pretty good though. My favourite is "Spectral Morning".

MarkH, Thursday, 8 November 2001 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

They dropped MD off after a gig and never bothered to get in touch again, is what I heard.

He surfaced on a St. Ettiene track "Paper" which he co-wrote. I don't know which album or single this track was originally on, but it's on the Smash the System comp.

I prefer Deebank-era Felt to Duffy-era Felt, although I'm not fond of MD's florid classical-style playing. They sound best when he's kept on a tight leash e.g Penelope Tree or Mexican Bandits. "Crumbling the Antiseptic Beauty", the debut, is a classic, and it's downhill from there IMHO.

Dr. C, Thursday, 8 November 2001 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

It's a shame Maurice Deebank hasn't done more since Felt, his guitar playing was so unique -- the classical touches added a certain something that's lacking from a lot of other guitar players.

Nicole, Thursday, 8 November 2001 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

The MAURICE DEEBANK Solo CD "Inner Thought Zone" is quite good. I listen to it almost every single day at least once during work on my cpu. All instrumental... it's just like old FELT stuff.... "Ignite The Seven Cannons.." instrumentals only more tightly produced. The CD was re-released with more tracks. He went into the studio to make new tracks. I heard he's living with a girl in SPAIN.. Did anyone hear the song PAPER he co-wrote with St. Ettiene. It was the b-side to the AVENUE single. Todd

Todd E. Jones, Thursday, 8 November 2001 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

yes, "Paper"! It's also on an earlier St Etienne comp "You need a mess of help to stand alone". Somehow I didn't realise/had forgotten this was Deebank and maybe I'd also been put off this track by the lyrics, which include "Only love can mend a broken heart" (remind you of anything?). I will certainly check out the Deebank solo cd tho.

There's a pretty great "classic album's revisited" type article on Back In Denim in this month's Mojo (by either Ian Harrison or Roy Wilkinson or Andrew Harrison, one of those three); also it mentions that the Go-Kart Mozart Tearing Up The Charts album finally gets a release next month, staggeringly amazon seem to back this up. New Product Hurrah!

I can see nothing wrong with any of the three Denim albums and the Go-Kart Mozart one. I love them all. Each one is a logical progression of his strange art. Ditto for being excited about this new one.

Is the Denim stuff still in print and, if not, doessomonewanttoyousendit? I feel I deserve it for shelling out $25 a pop for the import Felt reissues way back when.

One of my my fav moment was when Select interviewed a bunch of people about the Exciting New Oasis album and Lawrence Hayward was like, "Oh god I hate it when musicians start singing about their kids.... They should be singing about fucking in the bushes, not their stupid families."

Aaron W (Aaron W), Monday, 11 April 2005 14:58 (sixteen years ago) link

t is still the case the three Denimses to date are the records Most Urgently In Need Of Reissue ever (& Kenickie, etc).

Obviously a new Denim album would perhaps be even more glorious, Denim Takes Over has been on the cards since, um, about 1997 maybe? I love the idea that in Lawrence's mind there is zero overlap between Denim and GKM and that they serve entirely different purposes and appeal to totally different audiences, and songs are specifically written either for one or the other.

Alex in Doncaster (Alex in Doncaster), Monday, 11 April 2005 15:00 (sixteen years ago) link

There's a Lawrence solo track on Ekkehard Ehlers' forthcoming compilation album Childish Music (Staubgold 60). It's called "Falling Down A Dam Of Mashed Potatoes", unsurprisingly.

i am, tho i spent longer reading the inner sleeve than i did listening to the record last time. didn't someone use some of the band name suggestions? i seem to recall they did... lawrence was spotted at the water rats in kings cross about a year ago checking out the tyde (sigh) he looked like he'd been living under a hedge.

cw (cww), Wednesday, 18 May 2005 13:06 (sixteen years ago) link

FYI: All of the 10 original Felt albums -- Creation and Cherry Red titles -- were reissued on CD just about a year ago in those annoying little replica cardboard LP sleeve things, so they shouldn't be too hard to come by now. I don't think they were remastered or anything, but they are out there now.

Hutlock (Hutlock), Wednesday, 18 May 2005 14:01 (sixteen years ago) link

(it is really great, by the way)

It is less psychotic than the last one. It is not dissimilar to Novelty Rock, perhaps. At first I thought it was just an album of "Summer Smash"seses... I don't want to say that it has more 'depth' than that, because, that would be pretty wanky. But. They are "real" songs, yes.

Also, as last time: recommended listening, lyrics to track from next album, bandname suggestions (Shoes & Socks! Salamanda Palaganda!), 'new records to look out for' etc etc. The whole package is a beautiful thing, there is certainly no question at all of this being some kind of sub-Denim pissabout (not that I thought the last album was either, but I gather that others kind of did).

On $|$|< the other day I located a guy who was sharing an unreleased 1998-era-ish version of Denim Takes Over. This was quite surprising. "Trangressions", "City Centre" and "Delta Echo" from the new GKM are also on this, and "At The DDU" apparently previously existed as "Lorra Laughs, Cilla". I need to lavish more time on the rest of it, but, fantastic.

The (Bob Stanley) review of Go-Kart Mozart in the current Uncut includes teensy interview wherein Lawrence claims that a third album will be out later this year, I can't remember if he was referring to Denim or GKM. But the prospect of either is pretty glorious.

PaulTMA, Sunday, 25 February 2018 11:28 (three years ago) link

are these albums actually remixed? I missed that, I assumed tey were just remastered (if that)

akm, Sunday, 25 February 2018 15:35 (three years ago) link

oh only six songs on Ignite were remixed. I wonder why.

akm, Sunday, 25 February 2018 15:36 (three years ago) link

Yeah, it sounds weird that some of them still have that old style production. I'm glad they didn't touch Primitive Painters. It's perfect as it is.

kitchen person, Sunday, 25 February 2018 18:01 (three years ago) link

From reading interviews Lawrence has said that the guitar effects were recorded to tape rather than recording the guitars dry and then adding the effect later so I dunno how much he had to work with. I don't mind the original production that much, it certainly works on Primitive Painters.

self heating (brownie), Sunday, 25 February 2018 18:15 (three years ago) link

Lawrence says in the radio interview that he took the master tapes for the songs that had vocals and they used those tapes to do the remastering. I assume the rest of the untouched songs are instrumental + Primitive Painters.

brotherlovesdub, Sunday, 25 February 2018 18:33 (three years ago) link

from recent interview at the quietus:

He did one song that was really good, which was 'Primitive Painters'. But that was because when we got back from Scotland where we'd recorded it we remixed it in a big London studio, because it was going to be a single. But on the rest of the album he just applied his Cocteau Twins techniques to Felt, which I didn't want him to do at all.

So I knew that one day I was definitely going to remix those six tracks, the ones with singing on them. And what I did was I took the master tapes home from Edinburgh at the end of that session. I stole them and I kept them with me for all of these years.

new noise, Sunday, 25 February 2018 18:38 (three years ago) link

call me crazy but i listen to felt for the endless guitar/organ solos paired with some catchy singing sometimes by a guy who sounds like a goofy tom verlaine. no so much in it for hyper ironic lyrics and production

i gave GKM a listen and it's not bad and i'll be spending more time with it. but all yall saying that it's better than felt are out of your minds. taste is subjective and all but that's about as close as you can get to having an objectively wrong opinion

Although he supposedly hated the sound on Poem Of The River even more - the rumour has it he threw the tapes in the Thames, although I think that's a tall story. Wonder if he'd remix that too, given access.

I was going to chuck these tapes into the Thames and tell McGee there's no album. He said, 'I've put my last six grand into this album. I've sold it to all these European companies! If you don't deliver the tapes, I'm finished and Creation's finished!' I had to give it to him!

Nice. That was my first Felt acquisition (well, the twofer with Poem of the River) almost a decade after its release, and seems destined to be my favourite forever. The "Cherry Red/Deebank >>>> Creation/Duffy" talk at that time seemed overwhelming so a piece just straight out stating that Forever is their best record is fine by me.

I've only recently gotten into Felt and got into Ignite the Seven Cannons through the remaster/remix. Man, the original version is so different. I know it's somewhat unpopular (well, it appears to be somewhat unpopular), but I think it's pretty fascinating and even a bit enjoyable after fully submersing myself in the remaster/remix. I think the mix definitely gets in the way of the songs, particularly something hooky like 'The Day the Rain Come Down,' but it totally works on another songs.

afriendlypioneer, Monday, 27 April 2020 16:46 (one year ago) link

I adore the original "Seven Cannons" and was quite taken aback by the new version. Which songs to you think benefit the most on the new version?

Gerald McBoing-Boing, Monday, 27 April 2020 17:06 (one year ago) link

I definitely prefer the originals to the de-guthrie’d tracks, love all that shimmery icing...

but I think it’s cool on the new disc because it sounds more like Felt, the band, playing. maybe more of a direct line to the creation records
