Flatironed At Feed Time

I just had to mention this. Seminal grunge-pit boozehounds feedtime have only recently been given their due thanks to the brilliant box set vinyl of their albums put together by Sub Pop, The Aberrant Years (one of my proudest possessions). Well unless you have been living under a rock the past few days you would know that the band are releasing new material! 'Flatiron' is the first new track from the Sydney malcontents in decades - plural - and it's feedtime all over - an urgent, stuttering, rumbling bassline, opened with a scuzzy, rusted out slide, Rick Johnson's barked vocals. Even with the helping hand of one Mikey Young, it sounds just like feedtime of the 1980s. 'Flatiron' is the precursor to a 7" coming out on the Seattle label on Tuesday - get the pre-order here if you still can (GOT MINE). If based in Australia, though, maybe save the money you'd blow on shipping and head down to your local record store - they should stock it.
