I sort of wrote about Felt yesterday. I came across a band that was making Felt-like sounds (also reminiscent of Jazz Butcher) around the same time in Dublin. Hey Paulette were “jingly jangly” (their words) and got clumped in with a lot of c86 bands, partly because they appeared early on with John Peel. Members have gone on to form Crumb and other bands but this may have been the height of their music making.
After 20 years this legendary but lost band is releasing it’s debut record on the German label Firestation Records. It’s a compilation of 17 tracks and a video. Available here.

I really do love Felt’s “Penelope” on You Tube
