SONG FOR TODAY: Felt - Primitive Painters

Where did I first hear this amazing song? Being covered by the Manic Street Preachers. Don;t know which version I love more... "Felt were a 1980s British alternative rock band led by Lawrence, whose surname was never listed in any credits or press. The single 'Primitive Painters' features backing vocals from Guthrie's Cocteau Twins partner Elizabeth Fraser, and was taken from the band's fourth album 'Ignite the Seven Cannons', released in 1985. In 1989 Lawrence declared it had been his intention all along to release ten singles and ten albums in ten years and, having done so, announced the end of Felt. After releasing their last album and undertaking a short tour the band split up. Lawrence went on to form Denim and, later, Go Kart Mozart."
