The Lightning Seeds – The Artist/s

The Lightning Seeds (also known as Lightning Seeds) are an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1989 by Ian Broudie (vocals, guitar, producer), formerly of the bands Big in Japan, Care, and Original Mirrors. Originally a studio-based solo project for Broudie, the Lightning Seeds expanded into a touring band following Jollification (1994). The group experienced commercial success throughout the 1990s and are well known for their single “Three Lions”, a collaboration with David Baddiel and Frank Skinner which reached No. 1 in the UK in 1996 and 2018, with a re-worked version also reaching the top spot in 1998.

Pure – The Song

“Pure” is a song by British music group the Lightning Seeds from their debut album, Cloudcuckooland. Released in June 1989, the song peaked at No. 16 in the UK. The track is the band’s sole entry on the US Billboard Hot 100’s top 40, peaking at No. 31, and was the first hit for the band on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart, peaking at No. 8 in May 1990. The first Lightning Seeds single release, “Pure” is significant in that it was the first song Ian Broudie had “completely written and sung, ever”. It was when producing a track for The Pale Fountains that Broudie was offered a chance to release some of his own material. He was originally apprehensive. Nonetheless, Broudie proceeded to record “Pure” at a studio in Kirkby. 200 copies of the single were originally pressed, but after some radio play and attention at The Haçienda, the song soon sprang to mainstream consciousness.

The Vintage Household Water Tap – The Shape

Modelled into the silhouette of a vintage household water tap. A tap (also spigot or faucet) is a valve controlling the release of a liquid or gas. The tap is used in the British Isles and most of the Commonwealth for any everyday type of valve, particularly the fittings that control water supply to bathtubs and sinks.
