Feeder – Comfort in Sound (2002)
Feeder were the first band I took my eldest daughter (Emily) to see. February 2003 – Brighton Dome – for the 5th leg of the ‘Comfort in Sound’ UK tour. It was her 16th birthday treat. For both of us!
Sold out (obviously). Queues around the block. But front row balcony seats. Not too shabby a choice for a first big gig Emily Rose!
Comfort in Sound was Feeder’s fourth studio album, released on 21 October 2002 and the first to be released by the band after the suicide of drummer Jon Lee earlier in the year. The album was recorded at RAK Studios in London during most of 2002, and was produced by Gil Norton.
The band returned to live performance after Lee’s suicide, playing low-key slots at various festivals in the United Kingdom, before releasing the single “Come Back Around” and then the album. Three further singles—”Just the Way I’m Feeling”, “Forget About Tomorrow” and “Find the Colour”—followed the album’s release as did the ‘Comfort in Sound’ UK tour which started in February 2003.
