Biography

Newport, Wales (1992 – present)

Feeder are an award-winning Welsh rock band that formed in Newport, Wales in 1992. By 1995 they released their debut EP Two Colours and a second EP titled Swim, which was followed by their 1997 debut album Polythene, after being met with critical acclaim and made the UK Top 75. Their second album, Yesterday Went Too Soon (1999), again found favour with critics and reached number eight in the UK. With the lead single “Buck Rogers” from their 2001 album Echo Park, Feeder entered the mainstream, around a time manufactured pop was frequently dominating the top 10. After their breakthrough year, their drummer Jon Lee committed suicide in his Miami home in January 2002. The band vowed to continue and would then in October 2002 release Comfort In Sound; an album musically and lyrically focused around the band’s emotions at the time, and was well-received by critics. Former Skunk Anansie and Little Angels drummer Mark Richardson joined the band in August 2002. Alongside Jon, the band were originally comprised of Grant Nicholas (lead vocals, guitar, piano) and Taka Hirose (bass).

The band have released six studio albums and two compilations, including the platinum-selling singles album. In total they have three platinum albums, two gold albums and one silver in the UK. Their only sales award outside the UK is that of a gold award in the Republic of Ireland for their singles album.

    I was convinced to listen to Polythene by the comment below that it's similar to Siamese Dream. It has some similar aspects musically, but the attitude and aesthetic are so wildly different that I just wanted to warn off anyone who might get excited about that comparison. It's actually a very different album, though it might be considered a descendant played by a much happier band.

    Sorry, I meant 118,000 listeners, not plays. And yeah, that's a good point about it being on The Singles and PoPY; it appears they're both added to the total as well.

    It might be because " Come Back Around" is also on "The Singles". There is also the "Come Back Around" from "Picture of Perfect Youth" to consider into it's play count (albeit, not too many plays I'd imagine).

    Echo Park and Comfort in Sound are two masterpieces, and in my opinion, very underrated.

    'Plays' and 'Listeners' are different things you know.

    I can't believe these guys never went famous with "Polythene". It has everything 90's rock was about and is similar to Smashing Pumpkins "Siamese Dreams". Two great albums even though I would rank Polythene at number one. [2]
