Firstly we’ve updated the WEB SITE!! it’s got a whole new look and feel, plus a ton of new images, so go check it out (link below) and tell us what you reckon!
Secondly Tim and Kel are doing another acoustic gig this Friday night at the ORIENT (recently re opened) in Brisbane. Playing about 10.30 or so. We’ve been talking about doing this kinda thing in other towns too, as it’s gone pretty well so far. Before the end of the year hopefully. (nice bit of leeway there)
Thirdly we’re gonna record a new ep in 3 or 4 weeks with that Brisbane legend MAGOO on the knobs. We’re hanging to record, naturally!
Fourthly Hi Cs is gonna be REMIXED by 2 guys in Melbourne called THE POUND SYSTEM. They want to make it sound “bombastic” and like the Sex Pistols crossed with Chem. Brothers… (?!?!) We were a tad apprehensive about the whole “re mix” scenario too, but after speaking to these two nutters we’re very confident to leave them to it and see what happens!
tim/kel/dean feeder x
It’s official, we went round to Dean’s place this morning, got him out of bed, and signed the Time Bomb deal. We can now get on with having a (musical) life again!
DART comes out monday (7th) and the album comes out on the 29th.
Sydney: don’t forget we’re coming down next weekend. Come and see us play.
You can even check out Dean’s new MOUSTACHE – it’s very sophisticated.
well the American deal is pretty much done – we receive the finalised contract this week and will sign, and from then on our home will be TIME BOMB Records, in Laguna Beach, Californ-I-A. It’s pretty exciting, especially as we’ve been working towards this for about 14 months now.. more on the deal later in the week.
Anyway, we’ve gotta start saving for the:
*new spiky haircuts
*extra long wallet chains
*massively baggy shorts
*complete range of beachwear
*and any other trendy american paraphernalia we can get our hands on!!
but we’ve decided to do a few quick shows anyway..
- **tim and kellie acoustic: RIC’S bar, the valley (brisbane) THIS THURSDAY the 3rd supported by Trent (ex melnik) and Tim Oxley (ex verys). it should be fun, and it’s free, so if you’re in a 20 km radius, come on down.
- THURSDAY 10th June – the GLOBE, Newtown, Sydney, with the Del Emmas and Lime
- FRIDAY 11th – UWS Nepean – University show
- SATURDAY 12th – North Point Tavern, Nort Sydney, with Four Bolt Main and Lime
And who knows, if things go to plan and we get overseas in the next few months this could be the last chance to catch the feeder for a while, so don’t be slackers now.
over n out,
In case you’re confused, the song HIT THE SKY that’s been played on JJJ lately is NOT a feeder release!
The song is a reworking of the Hi Cs instrumental b-side “Decaptivated”, with Kim from now defunct sydney band SPDFGH singing over the top. The track was recorded originally just for fun, but then got selected to go on the soundtrack for a film “fresh Air” that’s coming out soon. Hence the airplay and publicity.
Tim and Kellie will be doing some acoustic shows around town (Brisbane) soon:
- MAY 9 (Sunday Afternoon) Bliss Bar, Spring Hill.
- MAY 13 (Thursday night) THE PRESS CLUB, the Valley.
- and a bit later, JUNE 3 (Thursday night) RIC’S BAR, the Valley mall. w/ Trent(ex Melnik) and Tim Oxley (ex Verys)
We’ll be playing old stuff, new stuff, covers, everything. So come along, it’ll be a laugh if nothing else.
And finally, the new record deal that we’ve been sweating over for the past 14 months looks like it’s finally SORTED. From the very near future onwards, Time Bomb Records in California will be our new home. When the deal’s signed sealed and delivered we’ll be able to start thinking about that NEXT ALBUM we’ve been promising for ages now!
Meanwhile, DART is getting remixed, and released as the first single this month, with a new version of Kitten Licks (slightly different track listing, and re mastered) hot on its heels.
More news soon…
