“I think when you talk about the big four out of Brisbane (Powderfinger, Custard, Regurgitator and Screamfeeder) the interesting thing there is that Screamfeeder is the only one not on a major label. So it’s pretty impressive that they’re even there.” (Magoo – record producer)
A feature-length documentary about a band that emerged from the cultural explosion that changed Brisbane forever, and who continue to forge their way through Australian culture. This is the story of Screamfeeder…
It was all of it, slamming together to be greater than the sum of its parts. It was the thick taste of sweat in the humid air, and the sound of pounding drums and discordant guitars. It was word-of-mouth, gig posters, street press, cheap rent, and a groundswell so strong it kicked down the doors of the mainstream world and announced its arrival like a tropical cyclone.
Within this maelstrom, Screamfeeder burst onto the scene in 1991.
They went on to burn their names into the psyche - and history books - of Australian music. By 1993 they were touring Europe and had a US deal. They were ripe for the picking, but when the major labels came calling…they said no thanks.
They became one of the most beloved local acts of the ‘90s, enjoying significant success at radio and on the festival circuit; 1996’s Kitten Licks delivered on the promise of the band’s early years, imprinting their music on a whole generation, and receiving recognition as one of the decade’s best albums.
