Review: Feeder showcase greatest hits at intimate gig

Celebrating their Best Of release, Feeder play an intimate show at London's Hard Rock Cafe.

Presented by Absolute and Kerrang! Radio, Hard Rock Cafe plays host to a special intimate performance by Feeder, who this week release their Best Of Feeder collection, as well as additional bonus disc of new material Arrow.

Led by the charismatic Grant Nicholas, joined by longtime bassist Taka Hirose, the band power through their eclectic back-catalogue spanning their ten album history. Their set showcases their love for driving guitars, from the cult powerhouse Buck Rogers, through their catchy Come Back Around to their recent hit Figure You Out.

 

The show is testament to their influence and longstanding success. It’s filled with both nostalgia and forethought. The crowd responds to the likes of Just A Day with a ferocious energy. The room filled with diehard followers and competition winners, its clear to see just how much Feeder have come to mean to a plethora of fans.

And they are just scratching the surface. Feeder, with hits such as Just The Way I’m Feeling, Feeling A Moment and We Are The People, have a serious catalogue to pull from.

As a special treat, just as they think it’s all over, Feeder pull out the heavy riffs of Sweet 16 to round off a brilliant evening with one of the most exciting guitar bands of a generation.

It seems right to celebrate such a musically vital back-catalogue, surrounded by close fans in the home of rock and roll. Flanked by Hard Rock Cafe’s iconic memorabilia, it’s not difficult to envisage Grant Nicholas’ guitar handing in an ornamental glass case in the heart of London.

With the Best Of Feeder / Arrow album offering both fans and newcomers the opportunity to delve into their high-octane back-catalogue, things are only set to get bigger come their live shows next year.
