REWIND: The Lightning Seeds - 'Ready Or Not'

More wonderful music from 1996 as RW/FF takes you aboard a musical TARDIS on a journey through musical history. If you weren't around or were too young to remember the mid 90s, consider this a lesson of enlightenment. If you (like me) were lucky enough to experience it all first time around, then these posts are a fine nostalgic blast from the blast.

One of the many great singles released that year was 'Ready Or Not' by The Lightning Seeds, which reached number 20 in the UK singles chart. This song was can be found on 'Dizzy Heights, the group's fourth studio album, which reached No. 11 in the UK Albums Chart. The LP was recorded at the Eel Pie Island studio, a barge on the River Thames that frontman and songwriter Ian Broudie had rented from Pete Townshend of The Who.
