The Feldons are looking for a manager

The Feldons are looking for a manager

Local originals three piece retro pop/rock/blues band The Feldons have decided that they are too lazy to hunt around for gigs themselves and instead would rather spend that time writing and recording new material. As such, they have put out an expression of interest for a manager to look after the gig side of things.

As a manager you would have a good understanding of the local original music scene but this is not essential. You will also preferably be a good looking blonde female, however, this is also not necessarily essential. The pay is pathetic because we generally play for free but we can probably provide drinks, that is, if the bass player is held back from the bar.

The Feldons have played venues such as the Phoenix, Filthys, the Pot Belly, Tourist Hotel Wagga, Plan B Bar Melbourne, and Rose Cottage Inn, as well as some other joints and are looking to expand upon those venues and break into others.

The Feldons have recorded one CD, ‘A Cabinet of Human Oddities’, in 2007/08 and are currently demoing songs for a new CD for mid 2009. Guitarist mark hunstone and bassist james Montgomery have also recently recorded a number of original songs with MITACT and are in the process of writing a rock opera.

Apart from that, they’re just fun loving guys who like drinking and have a huge steaming pile of original material that grows ever larger. Once this pile turns into a huge stinking mountain, the lads plan to open a revolving restaurant at the summit. Oh, and they’re
modest as well 😉

If you think you would like to be a part of the local music industry then give them a call on 0407 213 701, or email them on ninetynine@thefeldons.com.

Their music can be heard here ;

Cheers from the Fedolons, ah, the Fedlons, um, the Fedonians, err the Von Feldenhams…

That was a huge hit!

That was a huge hit!

But I thought that Keating was the Manager of “The Recession We Had To Have”?

Thumper 11:13 am 23 Dec 08

Keating haha, manager of the Ramrods from Adelaide.

Just a piece of useless trivia for you 😉

It’s a really cool word – Gungahlin Al uses it all the time. You say it like ‘seg-way’ and I think it’s kind of like transitioning from one thing into another.

However, it is a bit of a big word, and it’s triggering my hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia ….

Thanks a lot, Thumper!

; )

Just a few more segues…….

Sieg heil????

As for a manager, isn’t Paul “The Undertaker” Keating looking for something to keep him relevant in the 21st Century? And he has experience in this particular field – just don’t expect him to be nice to your fans…..

Thumper 10:07 am 23 Dec 08

Che,

the rock opera is currently being finished, well, the demo is anyway. Just a few more segues and a couple of lines here and there to tie it all in 😉

What a pathetic-sounding ad. I suggest you recycle the cardboard from your latest slab into a sign, and stand around in the Centrelink waiting room with it. You might get a nibble. (Particularly if you still have some intact contents of the box visible).

Never heard of them…but they’re smokin! Went to the links and there’s some serious picking and strumming going on there. The guitarist is one talented dude, and the band cooks. You need a good manager who knows the scene, knows the media, knows the deals to be cut.

I read that as “The Feldons are looking for a manger”, which is much more festive.

Granny has bodacious hair? Wow! That is nothing to be ashamed of. And certainly much better than bogus hair.

Granny 6:24 pm 22 Dec 08

I am only a good looking brunette female, so do not qualify. Oh, the pain! The pain! Why was I ever cursed with this bodacious hair?

So when is World War II the rock opera going to be released?
