In praise of Dr Feel good

I watching Punk Britania on the Iplayer. Personally I have seen so many histories of punk in the UK that I don't find it that interesting. Particularly as they never mention bands influential bands such as can. Also these program tend to stop at punk, but never mention post punk bands such as wire, that I now think are more interesting.

I enjoyed the first episode that featured "pub rock". There was a clip of Dr Feel Good. For some reason I though that Dr Feel Good was a black soul band for a time, but I heard a track by them in the past and I thought it was fantastic. I liked their stage presence even more. Although it is a little bit bluesy for my taste.
