feedtime (Australia, In the Red), Musk, FNU Clone
FEEDTIME have an almost subterranean legacy and those who like the band, LOVE the band and find a psychic link with this music. A ravaged beauty and soul underscore the claustrophobia of the lyrics, and the name itself is almost Zen-like: are you consuming your time or giving it over to something else? Time is given form and force through sound. There is always a road somewhere and if you gotta ride, get going and dont be afraid. Trust your instincts and dont mistake enthusiasm for lack of cool. Theres a screaming madness in the dissonance, but its got a benevolent message: Buddy, its a sad ol life But you get through it with love, your friends and family, as stress-free as you can make it Or sit on your arse all day.
This burning energy existed for some ten years and produced some of the most powerful, creative and personal rock and roll music we are ever likely to hear. The songs are out there to discover and relate to and when they hit they explode and youre never the same again, but youre grateful for the experience. This isnt noise rock, this is a groundbreaking FORM of music that knows its roots but applies the lessons to a wider scope than their peers.
Its heavy but life is too and some of us know this and we channel that power into art and sometimes beautiful things are created. Sometimes its too heavy and nothing seems to work out. Sometimes you just need to laugh it off and stand at the back of the room for a while.
This is perfect sound and pure art. Avant-garde pub-rock. All hail the concrete urban blues.
