The Lightning Seeds?
My pleasant island cycle was interrupted by Three Lions embedding itself in my brain for three fucking days… My irritation eventually morphed into wondering if The Next Generation actually know many tunes by a band who were utterly ubiquitous during the mid-90s? Like, everywhere… adverts, supermarkets, TV, radio, Football Focus… I listened to a ‘Best Of’ this evening to see if it would knock Three Lions out of my head and realised I recognised all but one song despite never having owned anything by them.
I’d be interested if any ‘Kids These Days’ (i.e. next generation DiS-sers) could let me know their awareness of The Lightning Seeds. Also, feel free to use this as an all-purpose thread for young people making old people feel like shit. Are there any bands that were omnipresent when you were younger that don’t get a look-in these days?
