The Fountainhead – Feel It Now (12″)

fountainWith vocals reminding me of Billy Idol via Simple Minds. I have to admit I’d not really heard anything by this Irish band comprising of the duo of Pat O’Donnell (the lead vocalist and keyboardist; who went on to be in “The 4 Of Us” and “God Is An Astronaut”) and Steve Belton (Guitars; who went on to be “Cry Before Dawn”).  A rocky New Wave sound produced by Brian Tench, with a synth sound from late Human league and screeching guitars, a weird mix for 1987. B-side is an album track, “Open Up”, very Simple Minds with a bit of Ultravox thrown in.

One response

  1. Feel It Now and Open Up are great period, funky Post Punk, but the band’s shining moment was the 12′ remix of their debut single Rhythm Method. It has a certain muscle that was a trend of the times from bands like Simple Minds and Icehouse.
