Album Review: Feeder - 'Renegades' (Big Teeth Music)

Feeder - 'Renegades' (Big Teeth Music)

If one thing marks Feeder out from other bands, it’s the distorted vocal echo they execute so… often. Beyond that it’s unfathomable how a band so ineffably naff can summon the brass neck to keep making preposterously charmless records...

Feeder : Forget About Tomorrow

Feeder : Forget About Tomorrow

Dealing with the death of your drummer by coming out with all tunes blazing on their best album yet was one of Feeder 's better ideas. Less of a good idea, however, is bashing out a string-drenched slice of stadium-sized yawn-rock for single...

Feeder : Manchester Apollo

Feeder : Manchester Apollo

Honourable men, Feeder . Even if this tour wasn't the first with semi-replacement drummer Mark Richardson, even if last year's 'Comfort In Sound' hadn't seen them reach their stride under the worst possible circumstances, tonight would still be...

Feeder : Just The Way I'm Feeling

Feeder : Just The Way I'm Feeling

More sterling stuff from Feeder , who despite having a three year old in charge of their sleeve designs, continue to craft traditional rock in the same way as their grandfathers did before them. The bubblegum period appears to have gone...

Feeder : Come Back Around

Feeder : Come Back Around

A gutsy slice of vibro-rock from Feeder in the wake of the tragic suicide of drummer Jon Lee. Rather than serve up a mournful ballad like the Britrock Elton or something, Grant Nicholas navigates the band through their finest single yet courtesy...

Feeder : Just A Day EP

'Just A Day' seems to have been around for an age (and, er, isn’t that much cop), so let's have a look at the B-side. And hey! Showing unnaturally canny taste, Feeder have decided to cover the only good song The Police ever recorded, 'Can't...

Feeder : Swim

Feeder : Swim

Following the success of 'Echo Park', Feeder's label have reissued their 1996 debut 'Swim'. As a vote of confidence in the music, it's not exactly Missy Elliott describing the sunshine rock of 'Buck Rogers' as "dope" or Timbaland pleading with...

Feeder : London Camden Monarch

Feeder : London Camden Monarch

I just had the most bizarre dream. There was this mid-afternoon festival slot punk-pop band, right, and they were in the Top Five! Playing arenas and getting asked to collaborate with hip-hop acts! No, really, in 2001 ! Ridiculous, eh? And you...

Feeder : Echo Park

Feeder : Echo Park

The last few minutes of 'Echo Park' find Grant Nicholas screaming "Revolution! Revolution!" over spasms of feverish feedback, beating his hair-gel-encased cranium against the walls of resistance Feeder so desperately want to raze. It's angry,...

Feeder : Seven Days In The Sun

Feeder : Seven Days In The Sun

Hold the front page! But prepare to be amazed, for the new Feeder single involves not only characterisation ("he likes to cross dress every Friday night in clothes from Prada") that makes Louise Wener sound like Charles Dickens, but tunesmithery...
