Ok, well we’re gonna get up at 4.00 am on Thursday to come to Adelaide and play loud fast rock shows with H BLOCK 101. (What about Lo-Tel, getting up to drive us to the airport (virgin terminal please driver!) – fuck they’re sweet guys! 3 cheers!)

Do we ever stop? No! we’re tough guys. Melbourne too this weekend, supports: Origami (electronic pop) and Nokturnl (rock rap..phew, talk about covering all bases) at the Evelyn, and the punkin’ H BLOCK again in Ballarat.

We’ve been practising Close Again all week – it’s not very exciting playing the one song all night long again and again, but it means we can finally do it live, which is very NICE!

See you at the bar ~ tim/kel/dean n mike feeder

oh yeah! –
What about checking out while yr sitting around on line waiting for that mp3 to download? It’s an ace site, full of Brisbane Pop bands. God, they’re lovely!

Check out the revue they wrote on our gig on saturday night:

Screamfeeder @ The Healer, 10 February 2001

Mark: Jo and I arrived right at the start of the Screamfeeder set so we missed Watership Down and Pale. This is a real shame since I really wanted to see Pale, it’s great to see them getting some regular shows again.

Jo: Yeah, what a great line-up! Screamfeeder were very very rock indeed, your regular energiser bunnies.

Mark: Tim spent more time off the ground than on it!

Jo: …Kellie made up for that toward the end of the set though. But they still didn’t stuff anything up! The material from ‘Rocks on the Soul’ sounds great live, I have a good feeling about this. They’re sounding really polished, and the kids were shaking their tail feathers with abandon. Everything about the performance made me smile, and my ears are still ringing. Surely now is the time for Screamfeeder to be massive.

Mark: Yeah, but my ears ring all the time anyway.

Jo: Yes dear you are very rock too…

Mark: The extra guitarist really fills out the live sound, but really can’t match Tim for rock moves though.

Jo: I thought I was going to be sconned by his tele there for a bit. The consummate professional though, for all the bouncing and thrashing he still kept an eye on the amp mike. They’ve got quite the collection of spunky guitars going on too, good to see the rockness stopped short of injuring them too badly. My highlight for the night was hearing HiCs and Triple Hook end on end (just like on the EP). ‘Domino’ is still in my head too….

Mark: Stopless was interesting, featuring a sampled drum loop with Dean drumming along after the first few bars (as per the CD). It suddenly made me think of My Bloody Valentine, especially with Kellie’s vocals over the top.

Jo: Yeah, I’m really impressed by how far Kellie has come from the days of Rock Against Work in the early 90’s. You go girl! And I’d forgotten how good a drummer Dean is… I think we can officially say that Screamfeeder went off.

Mark: Like prawns in the sun?

Jo: Erm, like veteran rock-piglets on the verge…

Another thing, vote for f.a.q in the logies in the light entertainment category. I’ve been told this, I don’t have a telly so i’m acting in good faith.
