The Feelies - Crazy Rhythms
One of the most underrated "college-rock" (a silly, inconclusive genre, i know) bands of the early 80's, some even go as far as to call 'em post-punk. I dunno about that, they've got a great sound, all their own. This is their debut album, one hell of a record, great songs throughout, including two covers: a spastic rendition of the beatles' "Everybody's got something to hide" and another cover i never get tired of hearing, the Stones' "Paint it Black". You'll be sure to enjoy the instant classic "Fa Cé-La" including "tuki tuki" percussion and whyning guitar solo's. Crazy Rhythms was rated #49 in Rolling Stone's top 100 albums of the 1980s, fully deserved. Anyone else notice a certain similarity with a certain weezer cover? Or is it just me?
