Released in 1984 on the legendary Sleeping Bag Records, Felix was the brainchild of Arthur Russell and Gallery DJ Nicky Siano. ‘You Can’t Hold Me Down’ was the b-side to their classic tune ‘Tiger Stripes’ (Russell refused to take any recording credit for Felix, due to his immense dislike for the song – the crazy fool, it’s an absolute belter!).

With it’s snappy yet druggy grooves and jagged keyboards, it shows off the incredible talent of Russell and the dance savvy of Siano. A disjointed and soulful downtown disco track, it’s one of the many gems that can be found lurching in Sleeping Bag’s glorious back catalogue.

It’s a ‘bad little kitten’!
