Feeder were originally a three piece band formed in 1992 by Welsh frontman Grant Nicholas and his long-time friend and drummer Jon Lee.
In search of rock and roll fame, the two moved to London where they recruited Japanese born bassist Taka Hirose. The three formed a
band called Feeder, a Brit rock/pop band - with aspirations of world domination and 'partying down'.
The band were quickly snapped up by the Echo Record Label and spent the coming years touring, recording, drinking, gigging and generally working hard to make a name for themselves, releasing three full-length albums; Polythene, Yesterday Went Too Soon and Echo Park.
In 2002 the band were joined by former Skunk Anansie drummer Mark Richardson, who took over from Jon Lee after his tragic death, and the band released their fourth album Comfort In Sound.
Feeder went on to release two more records; Pushing The Senses and Silent Cry before ultimately parting company with both Mark Richardson and the Echo Record Label in 2009.
Feeder created their own label ‘Big Teeth Music’ in 2010 and, after a brief stint performing as ‘Renegades’ returned with an album of the same name.
Other key members of Feeder include live guitarist Dean Tidey, drummers Damon Wilson and Karl Brazil, keyboards and backing vocals by Dean Deavall and long term collaborator Matt Sime.
They are managed by Matthew Page.
