I have not followed his recent recordings

Mike Fellows

in high school... I knew I was late for class if I was behind Mike Fellows in the hall

when playing for GIs he had the longest bass cord I ever saw
he would play nearly off stage

then when playing for Rites of Spring I recall him breaking his hand with his wild guitar style and the low ceiling of Food for Thought

I still listen to Government Issue Joy Ride and the first Rites of Spring album

Mike Fellows was a bicycle messenger in Washington DC
I wonder if he ever worked as a messenger in NYC?
