Felt were of course a completely unique entity. Led by the eccentric Lawrence they released ten understated but incredibly influential records across the decade we knew as the 1980s. The first was Crumbling the Antiseptic Beauty a gorgeous, dark and mysterious album full of plangent guitars and Lawrence's near spoken word Lou Reed-isms.

8/10 Jack 26th December 2017
Two guys with electric guitars essentially jamming with the reverb turned up to 10, using the thin but shimmery, trebbly, clean tone of their guitars to carve out intricate, gossamer webs of gently atmospheric, melancholic, melodic art-pop. Lawrence sings in his Lou Reed meets Tom Verlaine deadpan, while strumming minor key rhythm guitar parts and guitarist Maurice Deebank lays down dextrous, complex, yet highly moving and beautiful guitar melodies, alternately colouring and locking tightly within Lawrence's rhythmic framework.
