The Felice Brothers

The Felice Brothers are a band whose name has crossed my radar on many occasions but one who I know relatively little about and don't have much music by.
I've a few of their songs downloaded or on compilations and also songs by former member Simone Felice either under his own name or as The Duke and the King.

They have been really  prolific  since their debut album Iantown  in 2005 with 16 albums at the last count ie averaging at more than one per year
The only one I have is 2014's Favorite Waitress on the Dualtone album and even then it is a burn. I gave it a listen in the car last week and to be honest I was fairly underwhelmed.
Pleasant enough but nothing startling and certainly nothing to make me rush out and track down some more of their stuff although I suspect that some of them will probably be better. Most reviews seem to to give it around 3 out of 5 which is about right.

I would take marks of for their spelling of Favourite and Liquorice given that I am from this side of the pond.

The Felice Brothers - Woman Next Door

Apologies for the absence of A Spendid Racket today - my head is still all over the place with the  Muso Room disruption


  1. I'm in the same boat as you as regards The Felice Brothers. Only have a few of their tracks, all of 'em from sampler albums. Can't say these 2 songs from 2014 would make me want to find out more about them.

  2. If the spelling of "favourite" means you are taking marks off... you should have seen the face of a Chemistry Teacher colleague of mine when the official spelling of Sulphur changed to Sulfur a few years back. He was raging! That's the Power across the pond for you...

  3. I thought you had put me on to this lot. I checked the spreadsheet...nothing.......but there are three albums by The Pernice Brothers......
