I Just Wish My Life Could Be As Strange As A Conspiracy (And Man Ray)
With Lawrence's heroic 80s indie failures Felt the myth is at least as important as the truth. As well as all the story's of Lawrence's eccentric behaviour- refusing to let people use his toilet, sacking band members who wore the wrong clothes, leaving a Lloyd Cole gig because he saw Lloyd eating a banana (Lawrence ate no fruit or veg), releasing ten singles and ten albums in ten years with out-there titles- Felt managed to find the time to record some of the decades best songs of their ilk. Pop but clearly not pop. Like this one.
Today's Man Ray sitter is Emile Dubuffet, who looks a bit 80s indie. Despite taking a good picture she has left no other trace on the internet that I can find.
