SCREAMFEEDER have been a little quiet of late, (you might have noticed) with Tim and Kellie diverting their energies towards their various side projects (Tim’s solo album, The Warm Guns, THE WHATS, White Mansions).
All that, and an amicable splitting with long time drummer and all round DUDE Dean Shwereb could have signaled a serious move to the back burner for the ‘feeder.
But Tim and Kellie have always maintained that they’re “in it for a long time, not a good time” – after all they have an 8 album, 15 year pedigree together – and they have now re-grouped, bringing on board the drumming skills of one Steph Hughes (ex Wellingtons, and Children Collide) to complete the new look ‘feeder Mk III!
We are going in for a recording session this week, our first new songs since Delusions of Grandchildren came out!
Screamfeeder’s first gig of 2007 will be the Queensland Music Festival’s PIG CITY, a one off even celebrating Brisbane music from the 70’s through to the current day, featuring an awe inspiring line up including the (original) Saints, Regurgitator, The Riptides, The Ups and Downs and many more.
The line up for the day is a specially selected cross section of artists who have contributed to the evolution of Brisbane’s amazing music scene through the years. Along with Custard, Screamfeeder were considered the earliest pioneers of Brisbane’s massive indie rock wave, which dominated airwaves throughout the 90s.
A once off celebration of Brisbane, the gig will take place at the University of Queensland on July 14th. Tickets are available now from here.
