Screamfeeder, it’s all happening

September 14, 2001

OK, we’ve got a special live date coming, we’ve got a new kid in the band, we’ve got plans for a new album, we’ve got photos going on left right and centre, we’ve got shirts and cds for sale, and we’ve got a new look website. If you haven’t seen it yet, or I’ve aroused yr curiosity enough, click here ~

We know we’re a very “word of mouth” type band (and wouldn’t have it any other way thank you very much) so we’re doing a bit of a recruiting drive this week too – if you know someone who’s partial to a bit of the feeder, but never seems to know the goss, or who doesn’t snicker when the word Lo-Tel is mentioned, slide us their e mail address and we’ll stick em on the list, or forward this e mail to them, or point them in the direction of the site, let them do it themselves.

A big hello to my man Fabio in Brazil this week also, he’s the strong silent leader of the feeder army in South America, he CALLED me up personally the other day to chew the fat for a while. It’s nice to know we hold the world with so many strong hands.. (ooof, that sounded a bit too fanatical..!!)

Anyway, Feeder fan of the month? I think so.

  • Tim … CNN can bite my left ass already.
  • Dean … can’t handle his mescal.
  • Kellie … the asylum seekers can go round to her house, she said so.
  • Darek … is maybe setting dean up with a date.

Screamfeeder, a short e mail.

Tim plays an acoustic show at the G Spot Cafe in Spring Hill tonight (Friday) at about 8.30. Food, music, booze, what more could you want?

We wrote a new song at practice last night, it’s song number 3 in our new collection!

Dean’s got a new drum kit and he’s all awkward setting it up, he has to sit differently and stuff.

Peter, out guitar tech in Sydney keeps coming up with Lo-Tel stories but I suspect he’s fibbing. All mine have been true.

Screamfeeder ahoy..!

At last!! we’ve gotten the web page happening again.. it was getting so cumbersome and clumsy I couldn’t really be bothered with it any more, but I got all inspired and got to work, so c’mon already, check it:

It ain’t all done, but I’ll get it all sorted bit by bit, so be patient. I’ll certainly be updating far more regularly now. We’ll have new pictures, new articles, lots of stuff.

What else.. we’re planning a BIG show in Brisbane in October, we’ll let you know as it develops..

A mate of mine went to see Planet Of The Apes the other day and didn’t think much of it. He said, and I quote: “if you wanna see monkeys, go to the zoo, or go and see Lo-Tel play“! Ooof!! that’s not very nice is it?!

  • Tim – has been playing Cluedo
  • Kellie – tidied her room!!
  • Dean – went to his school re-union
  • Darek – has been at home practicing, and growing his hair.

Screamfeeder, asleep

Anyone who’s heard the rumour that Melbourne has the best pub/live music scene in the country, just believe it. the place rocks. We played the Punters Club in Fitzroy last night and it was just.. great, wonderful even – not US as such, just the whole gig, crowd and place. Very nice indeed, thanks for having us!

(Out in the wilds of Preston though it’s a bit of a different story.. heavy Lo-Tel territory maybe.. we felt a bit outnumbered by the slick, suave-smelling nightclub type customers..!)

Anyway, that’s us done touring for a while, unless anything unusual comes up. We’re gonna go to the practice room and write our next album; yes it’s about that time. I’m also gonna redo the whole feeder website, at the moment it reminds me of an old dinosaur lying by the roadside waiting to die. I’ve gotta get it happening. Kellie Lloyd (our bass player) opened her soul and released a solo album a few years ago, “for nothing and no-one” – it’s a bit of a gem too I might add.

Anyway we were rummaging thru the kitchen cupboards round at Lo-Tel‘s place the other day and found a box of them stashed in amongst the baking products – oof, cheeky gits! We took possession. e mail Kellie if you’d like to get yr hands on one:

Thanks everyone who came to our gigs, you make it all seem worthwhile.

  • Kellie: gets giggly when tired
  • Dean:  still looks sharp, even asleep
  • Tim:    stops talking
  • Darek:  drinks coffee before bed and wonders why he can’t sleep.
