Ce livre est disponible en français sous le titre La ballade du fan.

The British band Felt released over twenty records in the 80's. Ballad of the fan tells both the story of the band, by reviewing their records, and that of one of their faithful French fans, JC Brouchard, who once was the spiritual advisor to Creation Records founder Alan McGee.

Felt : Primitive painters (1985). A video shot in 1987, supposedly for
the Brazilian release of the Ignite the seven cannons album.
Lawrence is here with Phil King, who played with Felt in 1987
but did not take part in the recording of this song.
