Feeder -The Singles

 2022 Charity Shop Purchases #48  -Feeder - The Singles

How can a band who have released 11 studio albums, 12 compilations, four EPs and 43 singles, spending a combined total of 184 weeks on the singles and albums charts as of 2019, while accumulating 25 top 75 singles between 1997 and 2012 have completely escaped my attention.

I'll fess up I bought this album by Feeder at the same time as Suede mistakingly confusing them with Sleeper! It turns out that they are a Cymro-Japanese  rock band (a first for CCM) from Newport (so maybe the Robster  is familiar with them)

It's safe to say that they are a bit rockier than what I am used to and have even won two Keerang! awards and have been inducted to their Hall of Fame.

So it was with a degree of apprehension that I decided to give it a listen. I wouldn't say that I was completely surprised but it was a lot better than I thought it would be albeit it was quite relentless listening to all 20 tracks in one sitting. It is a bit like heavy Brit Pop (only Ash do it better) Indeed I may well have heard a track or two off Brit Pop compilations

In all honesty I can't see me playing this often , if at all. I have worse, much worse, but don't think it is going to be a keeper.

Feeder - Buck Rogers

Feeder -Just The Way I'm Feeling



  1. I am indeed familiar with Feeder, though was never a huge fan of them. I once relayed an amusing story involving them over at my place:

    1. A great story Robster., Friend of the stars.My post was worth it just for this.

  2. "Heavy Brit Pop (only Ash do it better)" is the perfect description.

  3. Much better than the Hefner-wannabes from the other day. Well, a bit better. Jo recognised Buck Rogers and Just The Way I'm Feeling. I did not

  4. Buck Rogers is a great song. The rest, much of a muchness.

  5. I'll settle for The Pixies thank you very much

  6. Back in the day the inkies had an eye on them as the British Smashing Pumpkins, so slightly lumped in with Catherine Wheel I guess? Eventually settling down next to the Manics as ROCK that flirted with while avoiding the traps of Brit POP. It's very hard to dislike them and I hope the constant rotation on Absolute Radio has paid their mortgages
