Burn My Fingers, Burn My Toes
It’s Feelies Friday! OK, I just made that up. But what better way to celebrate the end of the work week by listening to this live show from New Jersey’s finest, recorded at Maxwell’s, their home away from home in September of 1984. This was around the time that the band’s new lineup (Mercer/Million/Sauter/Demeski/Weckerman) solidified — the lineup that continues to this day! They don’t sound like a group just finding its footing, though. They’re on fire throughout the 13-song set, playing tunes from both Crazy Rhythms and the yet-to-be-recorded Good Earth. There are a bunch of highlights that make this recording worth your time, such as: an ominous reading of “The Obedient Atom,” the ultimate Feelies outtake; a blindingly good “Forces At Work;” and the closer, an unbelievable race through Eno’s “Third Uncle.” Get Feelied!
