Lightning Seeds

Lightning Seeds appearing at this event

The wispy pop outfit the Lightning Seeds is essentially the solo project of noted producer Ian Broudie. Following major success on both sides of the Atlantic in the 90s, Broudie made an attempt to modernise the Lightning Seeds’ sound on 1999’s Tilt, but the album's commercial reception was less than overwhelming and he decided to put the group on hiatus. Following the turn of the millennium Broudie produced a number of bands on the Liverpool 'cosmic scouse' scene, including Coral and the Zutons, and 2004 saw the arrival of Tales Told, Broudie's first solo album under his own name. Two years later Broudie re-formed the Lightning Seeds with a new lineup for live appearances, and in May 2009 the group's sixth studio album, Four Winds, was released.
