Broudie and Rogers formed the act as the “perfect pop project”, and Lightning Seeds broke through in 1989 with the psychedelic synth pop hit, “Pure”, which made the UK Top 20 and was a minor hit on US pop radio and a major success on US alternative radio. In the 1990s Lightning Seeds became one of the most popular and enterprising of the era. The 1995 album Jollification was a critical masterpiece, spawning several successful singles. In 1996, Lightning Seeds provided the music and production for the official England anthem for the Euro ‘96 football tournament. The lyrics were written and sung by comedians Frank Skinner and David Baddiel, and the song, “Three Lions”, went straight into the charts at number one.
Since the release of 1999’s Tilt the act has taken a back seat as Broudie concentrated on producing the works of others. However, in 2006, Broudie reformed the band with a selection of new members, releasing a Very Best Of album, and performing a number of tour dates. In 2009, the band released Four Winds, their first album in 10 years.
