Screamfeeder Patterns Form CD
It’s hard to imagine, but Screamfeeder, the legendary noisy pop/indie rock band from Brisbane, have been making great records for 25 years now.
Lovers of loud and beautiful music since the day they were each conceived, Screamfeeder have rightly been compared to all the greats; Husker Du, Dinosaur Jr, GBV and The Pixies.
And so to 2018, and the announcement that Screamfeeder will, for the first time, collect all their singles - and shoulda-beens - together on one monumental release, simply titled Patterns Form.
From the outset, you could hear the way the band that combined loud with beautiful, intense with joyous, chaotic with precise and pulled it all together in a way that very few acts ever manage. What’s apparent, listening to these songs in chronological sequence, is how the pop sensibility gradually unfurled itself and moved into the foreground, propelling Screamfeeder’s songs onto radios around Australia and the globe.
Screamfeeder believe in writing good songs, and then performing them like their lives depend on it. There simply is nothing like them around today. Old school? Shit yeah, and proud of it.
For the first time since they were recorded the band has had access to the mixes from the original source tapes. The songs have been re-mastered with a renewed focus on depth and dynamics.
