feedtime - the aberrant years lp box set

australia has produced some of the most brutal swampy noise infected post punk bands ever.... besides the scientists and the birthday party, you must add feedtime to the list of classic noise rock bands......

described as avant garde pub rock, i'd call feedtime all out skronk blues rock n roll obliteration...... kinda like mixing captain beefheart with no wave.  sort of like the chrome cranks or pussy galore mud wrestling with the melvins in toxic sludge....  you don't hear rock n roll this raw loud and biting very often if ever......

feedtime is the proto noise mongering band that should be cited as an influence by everyone in the underground rock scene, especially by the garage punkers, the grunge rockers and the current noise rock stompers..... they ought to be a band everybody knows about and loves and adds to mixtapes...... but sadly this is not the case....

but lest we forget feedtime, sub pop records has come to the rescue and recently issued feedtime's first four lps as a box set......  their s/t, shovel, cooper-S and suction lps all originally issued Aberrant Records of australia between 85 and 89........ the set sensibly titled the ABERRANT YEARS collects all these fucking way out of print albums so you and i can finally enjoy them........

this is essential listening for anyone who loves noisy fun dark angry rock n roll.......  add feedtime to yr record collection now....... only 1000 of these lp box sets were pressed up, so buy one before they're gone......

listen to a selection of songs from the ABERRANT YEARS box set below......  
   hand picked by mark arm of mudhoney (one of their biggest fans)

and holy shit in honor of sub pop reissues, 
feedtime's reunited to terrorize the US.....

check them out in a city near you if yr lucky.....

Saw them the other night here in Chicago. Check out my blog for details on the show. They were awesome!

I took a four-hour bus ride to see them play Cake Shop in NYC last night and they blew that little pillbox up! They seemed genuinely surprised that so many people were that excited to see them. First rate treatment of a grossly underrated and under-appreciated band. I hope this fine collection will help get them their due after all these years.
