Re: The absolute Felt - a challenge for Nigel Silver

Did anyone else have a problem with this download - I abandoned it when it said it would take 13 hours! Can anyone put it on a link that doesn't take so long?

Can anyone point me in the direction of the download, or is part of the large pack of live shows I have just picked up via the link Col3man kindly put up on Hotfile?

I'd love to get my hands on this one, not least because at the same Futurama The Sisters of Mercy did one of their earliest gigs ... regular readers of this board may have seen my previous post regarding both bands

Re: The absolute Felt - a challenge for Nigel Silver

It's part of the hotline link - although the hotline ran a bit cold for me!

Re: The absolute Felt - a challenge for Nigel Silver

Hi Lee

Did you get it in the end? It was a longer download than usual for me as well (over an hour), but did work ok - may be worth trying again. I'm listening to it now!

Hi Matt

No - it was still saying it would take an obscenely long time (3 days!!!) - and this was after I wasted money on a hotline account

Re: The absolute Felt - a challenge for Nigel Silver

Hi Lee

That sounds odd - I managed it off a free account, but don't have a fancy internet set up. Maybe give it one more go, if it doesn't work still, let me know your email address (I'm fairly sure I've seen it as part of your previous messages, but can't find it in this thread) and I'll drop you a line, I'm sure I can put the shows onto a couple of CD-Rs for you & stick them in the post.

Further to Nigel's query as to what instruments you play, am I correct in thinking that you have played shows in some capacity with Lawrence in the past?

Cheers, Matt

Re: The absolute Felt - a challenge for Nigel Silver

I wished! No - I conducted the interview with Lawrence for Perfect Sound Forever in 2003 that there is a link to on Rui's site - I've known Lawrence since '87 - although he is notoriously hard to get hold of. I play in Alternative TV and Jowe Head & the Demi-Monde - and sometimes help out with TV Personalities and Rude Mechanicals - though I haven't been called upon with either for a while. T'other link with Felt is a label one - I was the singer/instrumentalist with Counterfeit in 1989 - we had a 12" single released on Creation called "The Good Samaritan".

can't see on here where private PM's are managed and don't want my address all over the shop - I'll email Rui

Re: The absolute Felt - a challenge for Nigel Silver

I think bearing in mind the circumstances the gig took place in, it all sounds really good!! And the quality of the recording nowhere near as bad as I'd feared. It might lack some of the musicicanship that Maurice would have brought along, but is an important document of early Felt, capturing the spirit of those formative if nothing else.

Re: The absolute Felt - a challenge for Nigel Silver

Even though as Rui rightly says on his website "The World Is As Soft As Lace" is not included, I feel that there are a couple of tracks where Lawrence revisited their musical sections to finish composing "World....."

Re: The absolute Felt - a challenge for Nigel Silver

Thank you very much for your kind comments Mr. Kalda. I am very pleased that you have found this unknown piece of Felt history interesting. I also impart my gratitude to you for the appropriate link apropos of Felt bootlegs. I have seen the relevant page now.

By all means post my textual contribution wherever you wish.

Perhaps while I am on the site I can give to you another little slice of Felt history.

Please proceed to the next new post for a Haybaler fact.
