Personal Projects

Over the years, almost all the Feelies members started new personal projects. And when the band broke up in 1991, the soul of the original sound someway had survived in many of these groups until their reunion in 2008.

Bill Million


 

 

Bill stopped with music for almost 17 years, after he moved to Florida in 1991.

Before leaving the Feelies he produced two albums for Speed the Plough: the first called "Speed The Plough" in 1989 and "Wonder Wheel" in 1991. On both albums Bill played percussions, acoustic and electric guitar.

Bill appears also in the credits of the movie Married to the Mob as the producer of the Feelies song included in the original soundtrack.

The first project Glenn started after the Feelies is a new band called the Wake Ooloo. He produced the three beautiful albums realized by the group, performed vocals and, obviously, played his guitar on them. The Wake Ooloo disbanded in 1998.

Then in 1997 he both started playing with the True Wheel. The band recorded a bunch of songs that have been recently made available for download. Also, they appear with a live song on the compilation Buda Bootleg Vol.1 by New Brunswick Underground.

Meanwhile Glenn was involved in another project, the Sunburst: members included also Stan and former Trypes / Speed the Plough Toni Paruta, Marc Francia and John Baumgartner. The band recorded a 3 demo songs tape at the end of 1998 and a few more songs in the following couple of years but they never released an album. After the Feelies reunion, the band eventually evolved in a new version of Speed the Plough.
