Fancy Feeling Good?
Initially formed as a studio outfit by seasoned producer Mike Hurst, Fancy scored with their very first single, a cover of The Troggs’ ‘Wild Thing’, which reached No. 14 in the US charts in 1974. This prompted the formation of a proper band, which duly recorded two albums, Wild Thing and Something To Remember, the former wielding another key track in ‘Feel Good’. The song has been sampled over a hundred times (most notably by the Beastie Boys on ‘3-Minute Rule’) and was recently heard in the US sports drama series Winning Time: The Rise Of The Lakers Dynasty on HBO, which chronicles the 1980s LA Lakers basketball team.
