feedtime S/T (1987)

feedtime was an independent post-punk-rock trio from Sydney, Australia formed in 1979. The name is spelled with a lowercase f. The members were credited by their first names only: Rick (guitar, vocals), Al (bass), and Tom (drums).

feedtime's sound was loud, primitive, and brutal. The most distinctive musical element is thick, roaring electric guitar, played with a slide, over a thick, chugging rhythm section. Their loud but stripped-down, minimalist approach led them to be compared to the British postpunk band, WIRE (although feedtime didn't know Wire's music), but feedtime's sound also heavily referenced rural American country and blues.

Here is their 1st self-titled LP on Abberant Recordings

As far as I am concerned these guys are one of the best bands ever. Remember seeing them quite a few times, mainly at the palace hotel. totally unpretentious, totally amazing. They are still one of the best bands i have ever seen.
