Feedtime was formed in Sydney in the late 70’s. They’ve been described as “A blues-noise… equal parts abstract minimalism and working class roots-rock. Post-punk, yet right in the thick of it; miles ahead of the pack and not many seemed to notice.” (PBS FM 2017)
The original line up released 4 albums on Aberrant Records in the US, UK and Europe as well as Australia throughout the 1980’s before splitting in 1989. The band reformed with a new drummer in the mid 90’s, this time releasing Billy through Amphetamine Reptile records and completed tours with The Damned and Unsane. The latter also appearing on a 7 inch split with feedtime in 1996.
Apart from the odd reunion show, the band remained quiet for a long time before reforming their original line up to record Gas which was released via In The Red in 2017.
