Ian Broudie is a Liverpool musician and producer, whose work I’ve enjoyed for a long, long time.

Original Mirrors (one of the splinter groups formed by members of the much-loved Deaf School), The Lightning Seeds, Three Lions.

Producer of Echo & the Bunnymen, The Zutons, The Coral and many others.

So the chance to see the man in action with The Lightning Seeds on their current UK tour will be appreciated by many.

There are dates throughout this week – Gateshead, Leamington Spa, Frome and the Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London.

It was at that last venue that I saw Mr.Broudie and LS supported by the wonderful Aimee Mann in around 1994/95.

I seem to remember that it was the first LS tour for what had been a studio project for several years.

So all this time later, it’s good to report that Ian is up for a trek round some of the nation’s less known locations and venues.

On this Winter’s Monday, a few bars of ‘Pure’ is enough to put a spring in my step.

    Boss band. The Liverpool gig was really good, a proper homecoming party. This review sums the night up pretty well!

    I met Ian a few weeks ago too, and he’s dead down to earth and happy to give time to a fan – a lot of other younger “stars” could learn a lot from him….
