- BIO - Felt
English indie pop band from Water Orton, Warwickshire. Formed by Lawrence who recorded the first single 'Index' on his own label in 1979. The first string of releases through Cherry Red Records featured the playing of classically trained guitarist Maurice Deebank. For some reason despite critical acclaim and a #1 indie single ('Primitive Painters') they never made it big, but have remained a cult band ever since. After Deebank left in 1986 they signed to Creation Records and released Forever Breathes The Lonely Word, arguably one of their highlights and still lauded as one of the decade's best pop albums. They went on to release ten albums in ten years, fulfilling Lawrence's 1980 prophecy.
The Splendour of Fear is the second album by English alternative rock band Felt, released in 1984. It is a largely instrumental album based around long guitar passages inspired by classical guitar music, with only tracks 2 and 5 having any lyrics.
The cover art is taken from the poster for the 1966 Andy Warhol/Paul Morrissey film Chelsea Girls, designed by Alan Aldridge. According to Lawrence, he had discovered the image in a library book without knowing who the artist actually was, having assumed it was Warhol himself. Aldridge never approached the band for using it without his permission. -wikipedia
