The Feelers – Learn to Hate The Feelers CD
The Feelers hail from Columbus, Ohio, and this is their first album. They should have called it ‘Bloodstains Across the Rust Belt’. Steve Albundy from the Reatards plays bass and, although that’s definitely a selling point, the music sells itself. This disc includes 13 tracks of claustrophobic, paranoid fast-paced punk rock that you could probably throw on any Killed By Death comp and no one would be any wiser. Twin guitar attack with soloing, frantic wacko vocals, and an overall sense of poor mental health are all here. Pretty much every song rips in a Zero Boys meets hardcore Devo sorta way with jagged tempo changes and ace song writing. Recommended! On Dead Beat Records.
