Feeder are a British alternative rock band based in Newport, Wales. The band was formed in 1994 under the name of "Reel" by the remaining members Grant Nicholas and Jon Lee of electroacoustic group Raindancer, after the departure of guitarist John Canham, although Simon Blight departed in 1994 to make way for Taka Hirose. Feeder's lineup after signing with The Echo Label in 1994 consisted of Grant Nicholas (guitar/vocals), Jon Lee (drums) and Taka Hirose (bass). In January 2002, Jon Lee took his own life in his Miami home before former Skunk Anansie drummer Mark Richardson, began to record and play with the band before being made an official member. In May 2009 he parted company with Feeder to return to a reformed Skunk Anansie. Since Mark's departure, Feeder have employed drummer Karl Brazil, although for sessions and touring commitments for Renegades (2010) they employed Australian Damon Wilson and former Mexicolas drummer Tim Trotter. Feeder has released eight studio albums, three compilations, two EP's and 34 singles.
