Lightning Seeds

Lightning Seeds name inspiration - eartrumpet_victorian_02Liverpool is where The Lightning Seeds struck first, a Brit pop formation that was intended as a kind of studio band for singer/songwriter Ian Broudie – but soon the band was sufficiently charged to go out touring.

The story goes that Broudie misunderstood the text of a song by Prince, Raspberry Beret. Prince sings:

'The rain sounds so cool / When it hits the barn roof / And the horses wonder who you are / Thunder drowns out what the lightning sees.'

The last two words were misheard as lightning seeds. That's a fine name, right?
