Tales from Dr. Feelgood (Comic)



While we had a great reaction to our posting of the Beatles (X 2), The Rolling Stones, the Ramones, Nirvana and the Dead Kennedys comics (see HERE), MRML is not planing on becoming a 'scan blog'. However, a reader requested the Dr. Feelgood comic, so now via the Dr. F Archive here it comes.




Now this item is a little closer to a tour program (but it rips off old EC comics, just as the Ramones comic posted earlier did) and demonstrates just how simultaneously cutting edge and unerringly retro this band was in their prime.




Being that I'm only a fair-weather Stones fan I've always had mixed feelings about the Feelgoods. Again, I love some of their songs (esp "Milk and Alcohol") but have never found that one album I need to know. Despite my mid-level fandom, I'm still chomping at the bit to see Oil City Confidential.





Let is know what you think of the Feelgood and their life in comics in the COMMENT section!

  7. Hey Jeffen

    This comic was included in the Dr Feelgood 'All Through The City'(with Wilko 1974-1977) 3 CD/1 DVD box.

    Dr. Feelgood kept the faith alive during some dark musical times(kinda like now) along with the likes of the Flamin' Groovies(with Roy Loney),Graham Parker and the Rumour,Patti Smith,The Modern Lovers etc.

    Wilko was heavily influenced by the late Mick Green of Johnny Kidd and the Pirates.I also love the albums by The Pirates when they reformed in the late 1970s.

    It gets me thinking of The Inmates,The Dogs(French band) etc.Stuff produced by Vic Maile.

    Ya gotten luv Dr. Feelgood.
