The Creation nailed a top 40 hit in the UK in 1966 in “Painter Man,” which featured the crazy guitar playing of Eddie Phillips, who used a violin bow on the strings—a trick so cool Jimmy Page co-opted and rode until be became a trillionaire legend with his garage-blues band Led Zeppelin.
(OK, I might be exaggerating a little. About the legend part.)
Over here at lo-fi central, we’re not particularly interested in one-hit wonders’ one hits, but rather even more obscure tracks. Hence we give you the Creation’s “How Does it Feel to Feel,” which Godfathers fans will recognize instantly, scratching their heads and sayingÂ “that was a cover?” In a word, yup.
