The Feelers

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.

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.
