The Strange Idols Pattern and Other Short Stories
The third Felt studio album from 1984 The Strange Idols Pattern and Other Short Stories. Available here on Gatefold LP and Limited Edition Signed CD with 7" box.
A strong pop album with great guitar hooks and a simultaneously sad and happy feel to it. Before the Stone Roses and after Be-Bop Deluxe and Plastic Ono Band, John Leckie worked with Felt. Booked into a metal / reggae studio in Birmingham’s industrial wasteland he sculpted a Michelangelo slice of new rock – exquisite and beautiful guitar odysseys – quite unlike anything the city had experienced before. Merging pop with a classical nuance Felt stood alone as the forerunners of a brand new style. And Gary Ainge was finally allowed to use his high-hat!
