Hi world! I have so many excuses for not posting more regularly, but let’s get onto it. Here is a playlist I made earlier, starting out with the great George D. Henderson. George comes from my home town and for that reason he will always be special to me.
The video showing Felt / Lawrence at his peak is a pleasure.
These are all great tracks, especially track 1. After many plays I am particularly partial to those from Free Time (and they made a crackin’ video).
In the (unlikely) event anyone is reading this blog, let me know if any tracks appeal to you.
There are no Felt tunes in this mix, but it works for me. The Michael Polnareff song that they refer to is below (it plays after the clip from the mix).
It’s ironic to hear Lawrence’s complaints about the travails of keeping band members on board. Shortly after this clip Owens pulled out of Girls. According to Wikipedia:
On July 1, 2012, Christopher Owens announced via his Twitter feed that he was leaving the band though he will continue to record music on his own.Owens cited the band’s constantly shifting lineup as the reason for his departure, saying in an interview with Pitchfork Media: “[W]e were replacing members for every other tour; I didn’t feel like I had other people who were maturing alongside me. I counted out the amount of people that were in the band over the years. It was 21 — a giant amount of people. That’s feeling disappointed 21 times over.” The breaking point for Owens came when guitarist John Anderson, one of Owens’ closest friends, left the band.Owens released his debut solo albumLysandreon January 15, 2013.He followed this up withA New Testamentin September 2014.
I have also included the trailer for Lawrence of Belgravia which I haven’t managed to see yet.
