Feels Like Heaven (Fiction Factory)

Mustang Bluebeat Fiction Factory version

In the early 80s something called “The Brit Pop Invasion” just overwhelmed pop charts worldwide. An apparently endless flow of artists and bands were doing out with a hit single and then disappearing after just one world tour, or maybe not even, anticipating what music industry would have become in the years to follow. So many pearls, together with a lot of rubbish of course, and this one was one of the most listened to and still representing the 80s as a flag, together with bigger artists and more famous hits. The Invisibles pay their tribute to one of the most beautiful melodies of that time, showing one more time how deep is the link between Ska and Pop, even in its more synthetic and dance-like extremes. UPDATE! This is what we’ve found on Wikipedia looking for news about the band: “[…]Before they began Fiction Factory, Kevin Patterson (vocals), Eddie Jordan (keyboards), Grant Taylor (trumpet) and Chic Medley (guitar) played in skinhead ska band The Rude Boys (later shortened to The RB’s)”. Destiny is inevitable.
