STOURBRIDGE band Ned’s Atomic Dustbin have been talking exclusively to The Base Sessions about their latest live show.
Band members Jonn and Mat took time out to chat with reporter Martyn Smith about life on planet Ned and their big Christmas gig in London, which will give fans a change from the greatest hits set list.
The band, who split in 1995 and reunited last year as their original line up, hit the big time after the release of their debut album God Fodder in 1991 and 18 years later the album will take centre stage for their next gig.
To mark the most successful part of their career, the band will play the whole God Fodder album at The Empire in Shepherd’s Bush, London, on Saturday December 19.
Ned’s frontman, Jonn said: “The reunion shows have gone down well and the fans gave us a massive welcome back so we wanted to do something different for them and play the album that made it happen for us.
“It was a time that was exciting for us and the fans, it is not an anniversary as such, we just wanted to celebrate that album and era.”
Along with God Fodder the Ned’s will also be performing other tracks from 1991 at the London show, which will also feature a set from Ned fan DJ Steve Lamacq.
