Cool For August, The Feelers
Powerstation, Auckland, June 24 1997
By John Russell

Playing support tonight was Christchurch trio, the Feelers. Contrary to their earlier incarnation, these days the Feelers sound like a formulaic melting pot made up of every other Bush / Nirvana wannabe I've heard defacing the world of rock 'n' roll. Their thrashy, angsty power-chord pop songs, though undeniably catchy, are ultimately spiritless, and the Feelers 'new' approach makes them seem like yet another cog in the machine.
