    Lightning Seeds' Ian Broudie (Part 2)

    Lightning Seeds' Ian Broudie (Part 2)

    In the second part of this career-spanning interview, Ian talks about his years with the Lightning Seeds: the journey from Pure –a song he didn't even intend to be released – to a string of chart successes such as Sense, Life of Riley, Lucky You, Marvellous, Sugar Coated Iceberg and, of course, Three Lions. He also talks about the years spent regrouping after his skirmish with pop stardom: his beautiful 2004 solo album Tales Told and the circumstances which prompted its creation, and his role in the emergence of kindred Liverpudlian spirits The Coral. These podcasts are produced by Laura Druce and wouldn't be possible without the assistance of our friends at Flare Audio, inventors of the peerless Jet earphones.
