Feeder : Insomnia

If you want a vision of [a]Feeder[/a]'s future, imagine an early afternoon slot on the main stage at Reading - forever.

Feeder are one of those eternally average guitar acts, failing to match even the everyday heroics of Stereophonics but lacking the will or wit to subvert their rigid indie-rock formula with inventive diversions into arty weirdness. Thus, 'Insomnia' qualifies as perfect Evening Session filler, its blamming riffola and ersatz teenage angst plugging the three-minute gap between Therapy? and 3 Colours Red. If you want a vision of Feeder's future, imagine an early afternoon slot on the main stage at Reading - forever.
