Screamfeeder, we’re contagious!

November 30, 2001

Hair all greasy? feel like a slob? got nowhere to go? can’t find a job? Well, now you might be infected too. No, really! Someone sent the Screamfeeder mothership a virus, and now it’s possible we’ve sent it on to you.

These things happen I guess – (I wonder if it originated from the Lo-tel mothership?!’s not very nice, whoever did it) I’m not sure what it does apart from clog up mailboxes and generally slow things down, but anyway get your virus software updates happening and stomp on it, the name of the virus is: W32.Badtrans.13312@mmor alternatively, click on the following link for removal instructions:

It’s been brought to my attention that our last mailout from a coupla of days ago wasn’t the slightest bit funny.. sorry everyone, it won’t happen again.

A free ‘feeder cd to the first person to spot the song lyrics (and identify them, smart arse) in this message.

Screamfeeder, hi art.

Cheers to everyone who came to the gig, it was a good night all round! Cheers to the most excellent Further and Giants of Science, cheers to 4ZZZ, cheers to the Healer, and cheers to all the invaluable people who worked for us. NICE!

Darek’s getting his little bit of input with the site now (go on, had his new digital camera backstage (birthday present last week – he turned 21!!) and took a lot of snaps – I’m starting to get them up already, and he’s even got a poem online now. Top shelf effort, I say.

Now, we’ve got a few of those POSTERS left. The deal was this: we had a limited run of 50 silk screened, and they’re all numbered and original and all that, so be one of only 50 people in the world with ORIGINAL ‘feeder artwork on yr wall. $20.00 post-paid is a steal too, get in quick. If you haven’t seen them, check them out on the site.

Well as homebake approaches ( so therefore does the one year anniversary of our first little absent minded ribbing of one of our favourite bands, Lo-Tel. It’s been a year eh? how time flies! We haven’t even had a come-back from them, what gentlemen.

Anyway, it’s all kinda gotten to the end of its life, so we might just move our attentions on to someone on this year’s bill, someone more deserving of a bit of something other than the mass adoration they constantly receive by pretty much the whole damn country. Stay tuned.. I doubt we’re alone ..I reckon heaps of people will crawl out from under their rocks. I just gotta think of something funny (not just plain spiteful) to say. stay tuned, stay tuned.

  • *tim – is aching
  • *kellie – gutterball
  • *dean – energy man
  • *darek – the smiler

Screamfeeder.. gossip..

October 24, 2001

SCREAMFEEDER will pick up their instruments and play for YOU (if you’re there) at the Healer, Brisbane, this Friday night!! I know I’ve gone on about it already, but it’s in 2 DAYS!!

You know the script, Giants of Science and Further are supporting, it’ll be a big fat night of “cruis’n” rock!! Tickets? – you’d better hope so. E mail back if yr in doubt.

We’re gonna do a mix of stuff at the show, a few new things, a new cover, some older stuff and maybe a real oldie or 2 for luck (..?!) We’ll also be selling t shirts, cds and some of our limited edition of silkscreened posters we got done just for the show, you saw em last time (or check the site – they’re very snazzy and will NOT last long. once they’re gone they’re gone, y’know? It’s the first time we’ve gotten real arty handprinted posters done. So, c’mon.

In other news, the singer from Lo-Tel is warbling on an Endorphin tune about “sex and violence” (making the world go round, apparently). I was thinking of various ways of working Alex Lloyd into the equation as well this week, just for fun like.. ooops! seems I’ve done it!! I’ll just leave it at that huh?!

  • dean * growing his hair, still (a record)
  • darek * birthday boy
  • Kellie * 2 days off work this week?
  • tim * master chef

Screamfeeder, cruisin for a bruisin..

October 12, 2001

I’m pretty excited about this show we’re doing, we’ve got some cool posters made ‘n all..

For those who ain’t aware yet – it’s gonna be our LAST show for Rocks On The Soul, and then we’re gonna really get going on the new album. Quite a few new tunes bouncing around already which feels good!

Details: The Healer, Brisbane, Friday 26th October, with supports from locals, heavy duty ROCK BAND the Giants Of Science, and on their first trip up from Sydney, FURTHER – who’ve got that angsty indie ROCK thing perfected. It’s gonna be loud alright.

You can pick up tickets from our site, or from The Healer, possibly Skinnys too. Any more details, or if yr feeling like you should be on the door for some reason (it’d better be good) get back to us.

Well I sat up all night watching the arias, clutching “teenager of the year” in my sweaty hand, but alas, Lo-Tel didn’t win an aria. But on the flipside, the singer was in WHO magazine as one of the sexiest people ever or something, so he’s gotta be pretty chuffed with that!!’s a weird world ain’t it?!!

(actually I didn’t watch much of the arias at all really, I couldn’t handle much more after superjesus..)

*Funny story, when we were recording “rocks..” Dean and Kel and I co-wrote a letter to WHO mag, along the lines of “as huge fans of THE WHO we buy your mag every week, looking for pictures of, or articles on Roger, Pete, Keith or John but alas, there’s never any mention of the band” etc etc. We got an e mail back from Barry Divola, the music guy, saying that he’d love to have some more WHO in there himself too!!   .. kinda hard seeing as they haven’t been around for over 10 years though I guess..

Checked the site?? Heaps of new photos, rare kitten licks art, and other bits and pieces. Go on..!

  • *Tim – expect solo record soon
  • *Kellie – finally succumbed to the Ben Sherman, expect some new fashion heights soon
  • *Dean – has discovered a new hairstyle, it’s long and short at the same time
  • *Darek – is still up and going for walks at 7.00 am, why?
