Even Googling to see how underrated they are, you’ll find they’re 308th in a list of underrated bands. That says it all!
Despite your enduring popularity, do you think Feeder are quite an underrated band?
GN: Underrated? That’s one way of putting it I suppose. I think we’re quite a cult band in some ways. We’ve sold a fair amount of records but we’ve never been in people’s faces. We’ve never been all over the media. I don’t play the media game that well. You know I’m not into hanging out in a bar with so and so to get into the press. Maybe I should have played that game but I can’t be bothered with it. We are who we are and it’s really always been about the music. I love that, the whole process of writing songs and playing live. For me that’s the dream and something I’ve wanted to since I was 10 years old. The good thing is that we can still do more and achieve more, because we’ve haven’t had that huge record. It’s been a very, very steady climb for Feeder. I still think people are finding out about the band. I’m amazed that we’ve been going for so long and I still meet people who haven’t heard of the band. It’s extraordinary really.
It’s nice to know that Feeder aren’t about the popularity but about the music, however, don’t you think they deserve more popularity?
We’d love to hear your thoughts!
