Friday Music Pick - The Best Of Feeder
At Laundry we are huge fans of electronic music as you can see from many of our influences and posts and the sounds coming from the studio. But we like to mix that up with a bit of indie rock, and none are finer than Feeder.
Feeder have never been far from the charts, or strangers to live venues. Having sold over 5 million records since 1996, they’ve played all over the world, bringing their anthemic rock music to fans old and new. Always exhilarating, always celebratory, tracks like ‘Just The Way I’m Feeling’, ‘Buck Rogers’, ‘Just A Day’, ‘Feeling A Moment’, ‘Tumble & Fall’ and ‘Lost And Found’ are just some of the 21 top 40 chart hits the band have enjoyed over the years.
In autumn 2016, the band released a critically acclaimed new top 10 ten studio album ‘All Bright Electric’ and completed a sold-out UK tour. Another sold-out UK tour took place in Spring 2017. 2017 includes 11 festival appearances, an indie / student club tour, various exclusive D2C gigs and Feeder ‘The Homecoming’ Festival (Chepstow Racecourse), which will be filmed for commercial broadcast.
Feeder are ready to reclaim their position as one of the biggest and best British rock bands with a celebratory Best Of release. Released on September 29 2017 in various formats ( but just buy it on vinyl and turn it up loud ).
The comprehensive ‘Best Of Feeder’ is in celebration of the band’s 21st Anniversary. The deluxe formats (3CD casebound book, 4LP in 12” hardback book) will feature all the singles released between 1996 and 2017 as well as a complete LP and CD disc of 9 newly recorded, exclusive tracks. The 2CD (softpack) collection will feature all of the top 40 singles, other key singles, and four of those new tracks. All 10 studio albums are represented. All formats feature booklets with extensive sleeve notes and new band interviews – the deluxe formats have extended versions of those. Bold cover text will be foil-blocked for all formats, with a different metallic colour for each.
Our favourite track is 'Buck Rogers', see the video below:
