Feedtime The Aberrant Years on 4LP + Download w/ Bonus Tracks 

With The Aberrant Years, Sub Pop finally realizes their goal of releasing Feedtime, a longtime staff favorite and a huge influence on the label’s early artistes. From 1978 or 1979 until the breakup of their classic lineup in 1989, Sydney, Australia’s Feedtime shoved their mutant fusion of early American blues, stripped-down hard rock and minimalist punk on an often hostile music scene. Their raw vision of rock music and disdain for trendy music-biz maneuvering earned them little in the way of mainstream success, but it did get them a rabid underground following (notably Sub Pop’s very own Mudhoney) and the support of seminal Aussie indie label Aberrant Records, Amphetamine Reptile Records and Rough Trade US.

The sound of Feedtime was like nothing else in Australia: a vintage blues swagger via roots rock and the late ‘70s that didn't come from an established clique, a pure strain of rock and roll with a relentless mechanical propulsion. It was the perfect symbiosis of syncopation, minimalist rock that carried a thunderous atmosphere of reckless intoxication and intense personal pain but with a self-assured “ease” amongst the chaos. The sound was both Zen-like transcendence and a form of self-defense from psychic scum. Impenetrable, yet welcoming. Guitar noise you could dance to with lyrics cut straight from experience, tradition and dead crazy urban confusion.

The Aberrant Years collects the entire output of Feedtime’s 1978-1989 lineup, including their self-titled debut, Shovel, Cooper S and Suction, plus gobs of rare bonus tracks and extensive liner notes by band biographer Leon O’Regan in a full-color booklet. The vinyl edition includes an MP3 download of the album tracks plus all CD bonus tracks. This is perfect sound and pure art. Avant-garde pub-rock. All hail the concrete urban blues.
