Jango Song Of The Day-Ned's Atomic Dustbin
Song:Until You Find Out
Album:Some Furtive Years: A Ned's Anthology
Ned's Atomic Dustbin was an ultimately unsuccessful and short lived British band of the early 90s. They probably deserved a better fate because they were a very good band. They came out of the Grebo movement of the Midlands along with bands like Pop Will Eat Itself and The Wonder Stuff. Ned's Atomic Dustbin were from Stourbridge and named themselves after an episode of The Goon Show. John Penney was lead singer. Gareth "Rat" Pring was guitarist. Alex Griffin and Matt Cheslin played bass and Dan Warton played drums. They were spotted by The Wonder Stuff and toured with them in 1989. This led to a contract with Columbia. Until You Find Out was the third single from their 1990 debut CD God Fodder. Ned's Atomic Dustbin released two more CDs and continued to tour heavily worldwide but never really caught on and split up in 1995. They were more popular in England than the US but mostly had a cult following. This 2007 comp from Sony's Camden budget label was compiled by the band. John Penney and Rat Pring formed the band Groundswell and Dan Warton formed Bring Out The Freaks and later Bouncing Bomb. Ned's Atomic Dustbin reformed in 2000 for one show and have reunited annually ever since mostly as a nostalgia attraction for local fans. Here's the video for Until You Find Out by Ned's Atomic Dustbin.
