Band Bio­graphy:

Pop­u­lar in the 1990s,when the "Funk Metal" phase briefly swept across the UK,  Lon­don based Atom Seed formed in 1989. Their debut EP I Don't Want To Talk About It' 'was released in early 1990, fol­lowed in 1991 by 'Get In Line'  on Heavy Metal Records. 'Get In Line' was so good that it even fea­tured in the Top 20 Albums of the Year in that years Ker­rang! Magazine.

Music-wise Atom Seed were Funk Metal. They have been described as the Britain's answer to the "onstage pyro­tech­nics and groove riffs" of Faith No More, Red Hot Chilli Pep­pers and Liv­ing Colour.

Reg­u­lars on the UK gig cir­cuit, Atom Seed con­stantly toured as head­liners - they were reg­u­lars at the infam­ous Mar­quee in Lon­don -  and con­sequently gained them­selves a strong fol­low­ing. They also graced the stage with big name Arena acts such as the Red Hot Chilli Pep­pers and Wolfs­bane. Word has it from fans of the band is that Atom Seed totally dom­in­ated as sup­port to RHCP and blew them away! Judging by some of the archive shots on the web their live shows were quite spec­tac­u­lar - any­thing with a lead singer swinging upside down on a light­ing rig qual­i­fies as awe­some in our book!

This suc­cess was sadly short­lived when Atom Seed were dropped from their label 'Lon­don Records' and split for good in 1993. Since then how­ever, mater­ial from their unre­leased final album has been made avail­able on Atom Seed's Offi­cial Web­site - main­tained by Bassist Chris Dale.
