Despite the A-side of their one and only single being one of my all time favourite UK power pop records, Sneeky Feelin's is a band I know very little about. They formed from the ashes of 1977 pub rock group Sounder, took their name Sneeky Feelin's from an Elvis Costello song and released the brilliant "Private Mail" single in 1979. In 1980, Donnie Burke (guitars/vocals) and Dell Vickers (bass/vocals) formed a group called The Gas and put out "It Shows In Your Face". The Gas recorded five more singles and two long players between 1981-83, picking up where Sneeky Feelin's left off but with a more mod revival direction and taking influences such as reggae and soul into their sound. Those records are a bit outside of the time line I am covering here but are quite good and can be found over at Noise Addiction II
