Welcome to our Felt/Denim/Go-Kart Mozart forum. Feel free to post a message.
Presumably that's a reference to Tony Race, an early Felt drummer removed from the band by Lawrence allegedly because he had curly hair (you'd have thought that, as a Television fan, Lawrence would've been fine with Race's hair, given that the head of Television's drummer Billy Ficca was similarly crowned with curls). At any rate, it's nice to think that MD would stand up for Race in the face of such pernickety behaviour. Kismet, of course, was to be dished out to Lawrence only a short while after this, in the form of early onset hair loss!
From the Nick Gilbert interview that came with Absolute Classic Masterpieces:
"Tony's also a mad football fan and talked about it all the time, much to Lawrence's disgust".....I'm not sure about the level of Lawrence's interest in football but I know from more than one source that he has supported Man Utd. Met up with him tonight after the St Etienne gig - he's been DJ'ing with them for the last couple of nights and he loved it!
Yeah he talked about liking Man. Utd and George Best etc. in the film.
Interesting stuff, thanks all. This site is a mine of fascinating information as ever.
Lee, what do you get in a Lawrence DJ set? The sort of thing that crops up on GKM sleeves, or anything recognisable?
Some electronic stuff - others I can't remember because I was too busy chatting with my mate and supping the odd beer - but the one that really stuck out for me was the original Roger Whittaker version of "New World In the Morning"
