FEELINGS

Photo Gallery: Feelings + Philadelphia Grand Jury + The Creases - Jive Bar (29.11.13)

The Philadelphia Grand Jury were resurrected and put on a show alongside Feelings and The Creases in Adelaide and what a night it was! Our photographer John Goodridge was there in the mosh to bring capture the madness.

Live Review: Feelings + Philadelphia Grand Jury - Jive, Adelaide (29.11.13)

When Feelings played the Rhino Room a few months ago, it was doubly special because punters were seeing the original Philadelphia Grand Jury line up on stage once more. It ended up being a show which Philly Jays songs brought back to life, as well as getting us revved up over Berkfinger's latest material and now, in November, Adelaide's got the boys back in town for a special "Feelings v Philadelphia Grand Jury" gig.

the AU interview: Berkfinger aka Feelings (Berlin/Sydney)

Next week, Australian audiences are going to experience 'all the feels' (hur hur) when Feelings take new album Be Kind, Unwind to venues in Melbourne, Adelaide, Hobart, Brisbane, Newcastle and Sydney. Backed up by The Creases, the tour will also see the mighty return of Philadelphia Grand Jury. I chat with Berkfinger, the man leading both Feelings and the Philly Jays to see how things have been since we last caught up and how he's anticipating the upcoming tour.

Album Review: Feelings - Be Kind, Unwind (2013 LP)

Feelings’ debut album Be Kind, Unwind hits occasional highs, but is plagued by its lack of a standout track. Feelings, the new creative vehicle of former Philadelphia Grand Jury vocalist Simon 'Berkfinger' Berckelman, are not that dissimilar to the Philly Jays'.

Tour announced for Philadelphia Grand Jury and Feelings through November and December!

After a run of shows over the past few months that brought about a huge response from fans of the Philadelphia Grand Jury, a tour has been announced that will see the original lineup back on the road!

Feelings announces 'Intercourse' Single Launch Tour

This one is all about feelings and intercourse, or intercourse and feelings, which ever grabs you’re attention more. Seriously though, Feelings, that’s Simon Berkfinger (ex-Philadelphia Grand Jury) is releasing a new single, "intercourse" and taking it on tour.

Live Review: Feelings + Bloods + Tom Lark – Goodgod Small Club (21.09.12)

It's always nice when a band evokes from you a new feeling, and newly formed band Feelings show how it's all in a name. The band succeeded in evoking lots said feelings from the audience at their third ever gig at Goodgod Small Club on Friday 21st September. Headed by Simon Berkelman, aka Berkfinger of Philadelphia Grand Jury fame, the gig was the third in a small tour supporting their debut single “One in a Million”. These have also been the first gigs played by Berkfinger in 19 months, after his relocation to Germany for the past year or so. The music played by Feelings brings out a different side of Berkfinger's voice, with much more falsetto than we've heard from him before.
