During the making of the second album from The Feckers “Live To Fight Another Day”, we found, as is often the case that we had too much stuff, and somehow this version of the great W.A.S.P. song “Mean Man” happened, which when we decided to throw it out there, also happened to be the first music from The Feckers in five years!!! Hope you enjoy. Head over to the official site to download it for free!!!
“Mean Man” (Written by Steve Edward Duren), originally appears on the W.A.S.P.album “The Headless Children” from 1989. That is a killer song and album, so make sure you check it out and go buy it you bastards!!
Irene Slade and myself had great fun talking with Adam Dempsey and playing songs from “It’d Be Rude Not To” for the first time on Radio Roarhouse at Northwest FM on Wednesday November 13th!! If you weren’t able to catch it on the day we have you covered – click below for links to hear the interview and also watch video of the songs performed!! Due to some glitches in the broadcast audio, we’ve removed the songs from the main clip, but added video performances instead. ENJOY!!
This is the fourth single that originally was due to be released before our album “It’d Be Rude Not To” in March. Sometimes things happen however and the song tells YOU when it’s coming out, but anyway it’s finally here!
Once upon a time I was going to do this song solo having had the bulk of it sitting around a long time before it was decided we would do it Feckers style. It features a great singer and infectiously enthusiastic guy in Carl Lindquist from Sweden, and also our old friend David Austin from New Zealand who we had written a few things with back in the early 00’s. Due to those songs not ever really happening, we wanted to finally have something with all of us playing together and this is it!
Also joining those two lads are myself and our resident crusher of heads on the kit, Mr Dennis Leeflang who also mixed the track.
As usual, artwork by Dan Verkys and mastering by Maor Appelbaum. I hope you enjoy!!
Just found this early performance of the Feckers song “Ours”, which appears on our just released album “It’d Be Rude Not To”. This vid is from a solo gig I did at 303 in Northcote, in Feb 2011, and was the 2nd time ever the song was performed!! Hope you enjoy!!
Hey all – look what just turned up on my doorstep!!!
To everyone that has pre-ordered already, THANK YOU and I hope you’re enjoying “Music Keeps Me Sane” for now!! Your hard copies will start shipping on Tuesday March 12th due to me flying to NZ straight after work tomorrow and Monday being a holiday here, which makes 12.3.13 the release day for our album “It’d Be Rude Not To”!!!
It wouldn’t be an album release without something going wrong, so in between work and international flights, I’ll be chasing up the posters as they didn’t arrive with the CD’s!! Rest assured they’re still happening though and if you’re ordered one, it’s absolutely coming!!
Haven’t pre-ordered yet but think you might like to? Fret not – there is still time, and to say “THANKS”, everyone that does so will score a copy of our as yet unreleased single “Music Keeps Me Sane”. Visit our STORE PAGE to do that!!
It gives me great pleasure to make this post today. The album goes into manufacturing on the 21st, and from there it will have a 7 – 10 day turnaround while they do their thing! Over this time you can pre-order, and as a thank you for doing that, we’ll give you a copy of our fourth single to be released, “Music Keeps Me Sane” before it’s released to iTunes and the like a bit later on.
Haven’t heard the preview clips yet? Check em out below!
As most folks would know, there’s going to be a new album coming very very soon by The Feckers – it’s just had the mixing wrapped up, so we’ll be mastering it now before it goes off to the printers. This means it’ll be here real soon and guess what? I think I’ll need the cupboard space when those copies arrive!! So here’s how you can help me out……
For a very limited time, I’ll be selling copies of my first album “Pieces of Eternity” for 50 cents. That isn’t a typo, and it doesn’t mean I don’t totally believe in the music, or that I’m retiring to start a new career to be a pole dancer or anything like that. It just means that I want ya to take em!!! Go on – take em!!!
When you pay the 50 cents, you’ll also get an instant download of the album to tide you over while the physical CD is being shipped out (this generally happens within a day of ordering). Any questions, email me, but other than that, please visit the new Bandcamp Store and go nuts!!!
Recently we were working behind the scenes on a forthcoming single by The Feckers called “Far From Done”, and I could hear a string on the song – something I didn’t have!!
So after lots of asking around and suprisingly very few guitarists actually having one, it was time to add to the family so to speak!!
Will be recording the tracks over the week so we can have the single out asap!!
Speaking of The Feckers, there was a little album we’ve been working on for a while that you may have heard me mention called “It’d Be Rude Not To”? ….. Well it’s extremely close to being a done deal. Will be going to Red Planet very early August to make 3 tiny little changes to mixes and then we’re mastering. Will be posting some release info for this thing really soon, so stay with us ok?
Much thanks as always!!! After that wraps up, I’ll be busting out a couple more songs with Skube that will be the final ones for my next album that was started just before things in Feckerville kicked into high gear in early 2010. Stay tuned for that also.
I’ll be doing the same thing in regards to singles with a steady flow of them that will come out via iTunes and also be available as full length videos on Youtube before the eventual release of that next CS Solo album. As it stands now there is a good half an hour of music complete, drums down on 4 more, with two more to come. Looking forward to it coming “to be” 😛
By the way guys, have you heard the DEBUT SINGLE from our wee little band called The Feckers????
It came out on January 25th, and the plan is that we’ll be putting out a few of these “extra tracks” we ended up with after finishing recording for the “It’d Be Rude Not To” album towards the end of 2011, just to tide over you guys out there waiting for it’s release!!
Chris is a guitarist / songwriter from Melbourne, Australia, founding member of The Feckers, and is currently putting out a song "every month or so" with TCSO, as well as occasional gigs with Hobart based Metallica tribute band Cunning Stunts and solo acoustic too!!!
Feel free to get in touch if you need a guitarist for your project and like what you hear around the site - I'm very much open to providing tracks for your stuff or even collaborating. Don't be shy!
