By Og Oggilby TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 18 Nov. 2009
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The Feelies are one of the US indie scene's great enigmas. They've never made enough records, and 'Crazy Rhythms' was their debut album from the early 80s, originally licensed to the Stiff Records label over here. They obviously owed a substantial debt to The Velvet Underground, but instead of the Velvet's usage of hard narcotics, The Feelies sounded like they just drank gallons of high octane coffee. Their sound was edgy and guitar-jangly, and I think that the drummer had a concept of not using cymbals - only the hi-hat. Anyway, their sound was somewhat out of kilter with the synth dominated pop of the time, and as a result, sounds more relevant today than ever. Domino have done a good job on this reissue - packaging wise and sonically it looks and sounds fresh. Well worth the outlay, plus you get download only bonuses. A minor classic.

Look at the album cover for this album and tell me what you see. Four chalk white kids gathered in a row at the bottom of a pastel blue canvas ; neutral expressions on oval faces perched atop rail-thin necks; an assortment of "poindexter"-esque spectacles; haircuts so ostentatiously uncool they have to be intentional, replete with buttoned-up polo shirts, jumpers and tanktops. The very antithesis of rock'n'roll glamour - they might have called it "Nerd chic" had such a concept existed. An album cover couldn't better exemplify the music held within it; the only other sleeve that comes to mind is perhaps Guns'n'Roses' Appetite For Destruction. Is it any wonder that 14 years after its release, spiritual descendants Weezer would use a very similar motif for their own classic debut Weezer (The Blue Album)?

Each of the original 9 tracks (there are a further 5 bonus tracks available when you buy the album) on this taut, jerky document of late 70's suburban New Jersey would be a classic on its own and, as a whole, between them they create one of the great un-acknowledged classics of its time, easily rivalling Talking Heads' Remain in Light for best US indie of 1980. The question has to be: how did they do it and why didn't I hear about this earlier?

One clue is in their sound. There's likely to be inevitable comparisons to

I confess until the reissue by Domino this year I had never heard of The Feelies.
Which is a shame because this is great. Very new wave, very percussive, very good.
There is a whiff of Talking Heads about it (never a bad thing) but also a hint of Joy Division, which may be due to the lack of cymbals on the drum kit. The Feelies stick to their musical agenda and in doing so create a unique, infectious sound.

I remember when this first came out "Sounds" gave this five stars. In the same week they also, strangely enough, gave "Bat Out Of Hell" the same accolade. Ever since I've had a healthy disregard for anything the music critics say. How on earth can they be completely right in one breath and completely and earth-shatteringly wrong in the next?

Of course it all comes down to personal taste. I would rather pluck out my own ear-drums than listen to Meatloaf, but the original vinyl of Crazy Rhythms (complete with the sticker "buy for no more than £2.99") is still lovingly cocooned in its acetate protective cover, and has been listened to on a regular basis ever since.

The music stems from the good side of The Velvets, is influenced by that late 70's New York vibe, and is of course heavily rhythm based. The modern equivalent would be The Strokes, who are far closer to "The Feelies" than they are to the oft quoted "Television". In fact if you like The Strokes and indeed if you like Animal Collective I would guarantee that you'll love this.

Best track is "Loveless Love" in fact its one of my all time favourite tracks. It has to be played at full volume (preferably 11 rather than 10) directly into your ear-drums. However there isn't a weak track on the album unless its "Raised Eyebrows".

A killer album and MUST BE OWNED!!!!!!!

Why has this been overlooked for all these years????
