The Feelies were one of the most important bands of the 80′s. I count myself as lucky to have seen them at Maxwells in Hoboken. There was a discussion recently on the Elbo.ws blogger forum about bands from the 80′s/90′s like Sonic Youth, Fugazi and Minutemen that younger music bloggers hadn’t really ever listened to. If that’s the case I’m sure these same bloggers have never really listened to The Feelies and can’t know that they inspired countless bands on the indie circuit today. Here’s a couple of great videos from that era.
