Blackfeather exploded onto the Australian music scene in 1970 with the totally unique ‘Seasons of Change’ and the album ‘At The Mountains of Madness’.
Blackfeather should have gone on to become one of the Australia’s most enduring bands but instead it went the other way and they imploded just as quickly as it began.
Neale Johns continued on with a new line-up and another Blackfeather album ‘Boppin’ The Blues’ but the band underwent more line-up changes and apart from a live album a few years later, they never sparked again.
The musical moments captured on those first two albums have been recently remastered and repackaged by Aztec Records and now available for the first time in decades.
Neale Johns was the led singer of Blackfeather and keeper of the name today. He came to Noise11 to tell the Blackfeather story to Paul Cashmere.
