Felt were an alternative rock band founded in Birmingham, England in 1979 and led by the mononymous Lawrence.

They existed for ten years, throughout the 1980s, during which time they released ten singles and ten albums. Felt have been cited as an influence by Belle & Sebastian's Stuart Murdoch and Tim Burgess of The Charlatans, as well as by alternative rock bands Manic Street Preachers, Girls, and The Tyde. ... more on Wikipedia
