ORIGINAL US RELEASE ON THE 'DEADBEAT' LABEL.
The Feelers- Learn To Hate CD. It always exciting when you get a record out of nowhere that just totally blows you away and this is one of those records. The Feelers hail from Columbus, Ohio, and this is their first album. Thye should have called it 'Bloodstains Across the Rust Belt'. Steve Albundy from the Reatards plays bass and althought that’s definately 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. "Stuttgart (Looking) Motherfucker" is a crazed little song with riffs that burrow into your ear and a nice surgical guitar solo while "New World" lives up to its name. Pretty much every song rips in a Zero Boys meets hardcore Devo sorta way with jagged tempo changes and ace song writing. Recommended.
