Album Review

Ned's Atomic Dustbin may be one of Britain's most overlooked bands, which is surprising, considering that while their releases may not be groundbreaking, each one is certainly solid. The band emerged in the early '90s, and was quickly grouped (along with bands like Pop Will Eat Itself and Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine) into the English "grebo" scene: punk-influenced, electronica-informed, hyper, light-hearted rock. God Fodder, their first major release, is arguably their best. Featuring college radio hits like "Kill Your Television" and "Grey Cell Green," it's a consistently satisfying blend of frenzied, melodic rock, with the occasional touch of quirkiness; the band's use of two basses (one playing "normal" basslines, the other scratching out harmonic riffs) keeps their sound light and hooky enough to put quite a distance between their oeuvre and that of the average grebo or punk band.

Customer Reviews

Early 90's Classic

I agree with the previous review that this band was way ahead of it's time. Along with Pop Will Eat Itself ... I really liked their cutting edge sound. Kill Your Television is still one of my favorite alt-rock songs of all time. Strongly recommened!!

Solid from start to finish

One of those rare albums that never gets old and doesn't have any tracks you want to skip, from the start of the blistering, classic "Kill Your Television" to the sample-infused end of "What Gives My Son?". The subjects of the songs are as relevant today as they were in 1991 (if not more so in some cases) and the album takes itself just seriously enough without becoming po-faced ("You" for instance makes reference to a pet chinchilla and invokes Carly Simon's "You're So Vain" as a bridge refrain). Underappreciated in their time, even now when ultra-cool LA alt rock station Indie 103 occasionally spins "Grey Cell Green", their phones light up with people demanding to know who the band is. Not bad for a bunch of Stourbridge lads from 16 years ago.

its about time itunes!

its about time that itunes had put the ENTIRE album up! i've been waiting for a long time for this... thanks!

Biography

Formed: November, 1987 in Stourbridge, England

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Ned's Atomic Dustbin's stylish fusion of punk and funk earned them a fair number of fans in the early '90s, just as England's Stone Roses-inspired "Madchester" scene was drawing to a close. Comprised of Jonn Penney (vocals), Rat (guitar), Matt Cheslin (bass), Alex Griffin (bass), and Dan Warton (drums), the group began as a neo-goth rock outfit in the late '80s. By the beginning of the '90s, the band had developed a dense, assaultive sound that was distinguished by their thundering two-bass attack....
