The Feeling's Gone

As we wind down our treatise of Ska's second wave, we here at the Monkey realize that we have only top lined the movement, there is so much more to explore, so many bands, big and small who contributed to that era, it warrants further discovery. Certainly our omission of The Selecter is glaring, but it's time to move on.

Our parting shot is courtesy of one of 2 Tone's lesser known artists that just happened to put out one fantastic 7". The band is The Apollinaires and the songs are The Feeling's Gone b/w Envy The Love.

After scouring the web and 2 Tone's site, there isn't too much history on the band, They began life as a six piece, progressed to an 11 piece and hailed from Leicester. Their sound featured a full, crisp horn section, the main ingredient in their delicious ska/funk confection.


I'm just sayin'.

The Feeling's Gone

Envy The Love
