Product Description

[Note: This product is an authorized CD-R and is manufactured on demand]

Amazon.com

Maintaining a unique sensibility for pop hooks and lyrical charms, Ned's Atomic Dustbin create British pop sounds that are instantly recognizable in their headshaking catchiness. Forged with standard rock instruments, the Ned's sound is even more salient because of the dual bass guitar lineup which provides jolting cross-melodies like no other. A constant barrage of dirty guitar scratches across the surface with flange and wah-wah providing spongy effects. In between the rapid movements, themes of post-adolescent angst come off brilliantly with the shrewdly idiosyncratic lyrics of singer John Penny. With a little help from the "Madchester" scene, they enlivened the steps of listeners further beyond the realm of the typical shoegazers of the time. --Lucas Hilbert

If you ever want to expend negative energy in a positive manner, put this CD into the player and crank the volume up! You will find your negativity evaporating because this album takes your frustrations out for you. It is guaranteed to get you moving, and if "Grey Cell Green" doesn't have you bouncing up and down singing, then all your nerve endings must be deaddened from years of listening to the pap of Top 40 Radio. The power of the double bass line-up of Ned's combined with the earnest lyrics and a true pop sensibility make this one of the best albums in my collection. You cannot be disappointed with this album.

After seeing these mop-topped guys jumping around on MTV, in a paint-splattered room that seemed to be left over from the J. Geils Band's video for "Centerfold," I really was in no hurry to explore this band. Then, while shopping for CDs - I could not get the hook out of my head ("It's In-Si-Ide Her" - from the track: Grey Cell Green) and in fact, only got the right CD by luck. It has since emerged as one of the best that I own - certainly of it's genre. With two electric basses, two to three guitars per song and the most aggressive drum presence of the decade before Dave Grohl of Nirvana, the songs on this album are dense and packed with intertwined melodies, good musicianship and various rhythms. Stand out tracks include the aforementioned "Grey Cell Green" (the only track of Ned's that received any degree of heavy rotation), "Selfish" (contains a sample from the film, Die Hard - grinding, driving song with quite a few rhythm shifts) and the amazing, almost"~ flamenco-Spanish guitar styled, "Capital Letters." These guys are adept at all kinds of wordplay ("The grey cell's green only if the green sells grey, the grey sells green only if the green cell's grey" - Grey Cell Green) ("She'll break some hearts when she grows up. She'll break some hearts if she owns up - minus one. Mine is one." - Capital Letters). 80's and early 90's band, their rock is pretty timeless.

Unfortunately, time did in the shirt but not this CD. I still have it in my regular rotation. The Ned's still pack a punch and their grunge/pop formula gets it right. The band had a devoted following, ask anyone who saw them live.

"Happy" is one of the best songs of the early 90s. Other great stuff includes "Grey Cell Green", "Kill Your Television", "Throwing Things" and "Less Than Useful".

Recommended, definitely.

I bought this the same day I bought Nevermind by Nirvana, and to this day this album ranks higher on my list of favorites. Maybe it's because I was just a kid when I first heard this, but it sounds so vibrant and original.

Yeah, the band utilized two bassists to form their sound, which sounds gimmicky until you hear it. Basically, they had a guitarist and bassist playing the rhythm/backing parts and one bassist playing the crisp/trebly lead, which gave their sound this bright and aggressive feel. And John Penney's voice is perfect for the music; it's a little angry, a little strange, and a little hopeful.

This band won't be remembered as an "important" band (like Nirvana, Pearl Jam or other bands coming up at the time), but I don't think they would particularly care to be. This is music made for the moment, and sounds pretty pure because of that.

This album was one of the grand serendipidous moments of my life. I read a review in a magazine of their second album, Are You Normal, and the name of the band stuck in my mind. One day I saw this album and bought it on a whim. WOW!!! Brilliant. This is speed rock with a Brit edge. I used to use this album to wake up in the mornings. It gets ya going and keeps ya up. It sounds so fun and happy, but there's really a very dark vein that runs through the lyrics. The two basses create quite a unique sound as they split the high and low end of the bass spectrum and create this bass-tastic dream sound. All in all, CHECK THIS OUT!!

What a CD. I remember my first exposure to Ned's was when I was in 8th grade, and MTV was periodically playing the video for "Grey Cell Green." There wasn't much to the video, but I kinda liked the song. I didn't rush out to buy the album. But, one fateful day I was at a record store and they were playing the album, and it was on sale for (I still remember) $5.99 for the tape. I bought it. It didn't come out of my walkman for almost 3 months. From the opening chord of "Kill Your Television" to when the distinctive sound of the 2nd bass, I was hooked. Personal favorite songs "Happy" and "Throwing Things." I still listen to the album alotand it still gives me the same charge as it did the first time I listened to the cassette when I was 14 (13 years ago).

God Fodder is a frenzy of sound. Swirling with guitars, bass, and drums. One of the bass players is heavily inspired by Peter Hook of New Order and it shows. This is one bassist that's not afraid to be heard. The use of two bass guitars creates a strong rhythmic medium for the intelligent and meaningful lyrics. Ned's borders on not quite pop not quite punk, but all energy. The guitar keeps you jumping around and begging for more. This is Ned's Atomic Dustbin's first major album and they take it to the limit with reckless abandon. As the Ned's say: KILL YOUR TELEVISION!!
