I Hate Me, 318,993

This one is pretty slight:
Being fifty one (Fifty Won-derful or Fifty One foot in the grave, depending on the day*), I have the worries of a normal person. Work, bills, family, the imminent destruction of  mankind by our own hand, The Mets, etc. but I also have problems that I thought I would have (read: should have) left in my childhood. Example, I got a great fEEDTIME sticker from Sub-Pop when I bought their box set. I was such a mutant that even though I work in a proper record store (suit and tie required) I ordered it directly from Sub-Pop, so I knew I would get it in case it sold out, because you know how great the interest would be in a box set for an old Australian band that 99.99 percent of the country never heard of (their loss). Anyhow, this sticker is great but I only got one and I still haven’t put it on anything. Do I put it on my car? I’m gonna eventually get rid of that car and then what. No sticker, that’s what. I have a binder that I have all my band’s lyrics in, there’s a lot of cool stickers on that but it’s kind getting beat up, do I put it on there and then when I need a new binder carefully cut out the fEEDTIME sticker and tape it to the new binder? I don’t know, it’s vexing. So there it sits in a shoebox next to my checkbook and couple of hard drives. Maybe somebody can affix it to my coffin.

*I don’t know if I used this puckish description of my age before, if so I apologize.

fEEDTIME: Waterfront Records, Sydney 10/4/86, part 4

Man, I waited a long time to see fEEDTIME and I was finally lucky enough to see them at Maxwells last night. Well worth the wait and they were nice guys to boot. Here’s a few more from the tape of a show they did in 1986. Thanks again to Pat for letting me digitize it. If you’re a fan of fEEDTIME I’m sure you know about the amazing box set that Sub-Pop just released [to listen, click on song title]

fEEDTIME : Waterfront Records,Sydney 10/4/86

I’ve blathered before about fEEDTIME; Australian, primitive, great.  Thanks a lot to Pat for a tape of fEEDTIME live from Waterfront Records in Sydney 10/4/86.  Here’s a couple of songs from it.  From what I hear,Sub Pop is supposed to release some sort of comp soon and S-S Records is supposed to put out a vinyl only rarities collection. Yahoo. (To listen to songs click on song title in blue)

fEEDTIME is one of my favorite bands ever, loud and primitive. Their bio says they were around from 1979 although I didn’t hear them until the mid 80’s. A friend of mine told me that they reformed and just played San Francisco, I hope it wasn’t a one off. This is the title track from the 1986 album Shovel   (to listen, click on  08 shovel  below)
