The Lightning Seeds

The Lightning Seeds. Who are they? Well, initially it was "who was he?" The Lightning Seeds was the brainwave of the scouse producer and guitarist Ian Broudie.

Ian Broudie had been in bands before. In the seventies, he was in the semi-legendary punk outfit Big In Japan, whose line up also included Holly Johnson and Bill Drummond. Broudie explains: "Big In Japan were arty, very Velvet Underground-like. One song, Reading the Charts, was loads of feedback with Jayne [Casey] reading that week's top 40. Somehow we made Granada TV's Whats On, which was my first time on British television." Big In Japan spilt after the single Big In Japan and a demo EP "From Y to Z and Never Again".

In 1983, Broudie teamed up with ex-Wild Swans singer Paul Simpson to form the duo Care. Care signed to the Arista label and released three singles, My Boyish Days, Flaming Sword and Whatever Possessed You. Ian still likes to perform Flaming Sword live, and it is also available as a b-side on the Sense single. Success did not amount to much. They spilt for a few reasons.
