The Feelers emerged out of Christchurch in the nineties and assailed the music charts with catchy, slick rock hits. They sold 250,000 units over five multi-platinum albums with a hefty seven No.1 singles, and set themselves up as a monolithic presence on the local rock scene.

For a period of time, The Feelers provided a background soundtrack to New Zealand life and their career maps the course of local commercial music at the turn of the new millennium.

Trivia:

Tim Skedden played guitar with The Feelers during their early years and continued to fill in for live shows until Andy Lynch joined the group. Skedden was also a founding member of Op-shop, but unfortunately, he also left that group just prior to them gaining mainstream success.
