You might remember them as the band behind the chart-topping England Euro 96 anthem Three Lions, but there's more to the Lightning Seeds than merely football songs. Fronted by Liverpudlian Jew Ian Broudie, they notched up a string of hits in the late 80s and early 90s, including Pure, The Life Of Riley, Sugar Coated Iceberg and Change, as well as releasing successful albums including Sense, Jollification and Dizzy Heights.

But apart from the inevitable re-release of Three Lions for the 2006 World Cup, what has Broudie been up to of late? Well, a new compilation album featuring the band's greatest hits was released last month, while a brand new single, Song for No One, is also out now. The band have also been on the road recently, playing dates in Oxford, Stoke and London, while they're due at the Guilfest music festival in Guildford on July 14.

Broudie's also been hard at work behind the scenes as a producer, most notably on the first two albums from eclectic Liverpool band The Coral (their debut self-titled album was nominated for the prestigious Mercury Music Prize).

In 2004 he produced Who Killed The Zutons, the debut album from fellow Scousers The Zutons (which also picked up a Mercury Music Prize nomination), and more recently has worked with teenage rockers The Subways. Broudie, now 47, remains philosophical about what he does. "Pop music can mean throwaway, but to me it means being in synch with everything that's going on".
