The best of the Lightning Seeds? All I can remember - and I think it was the early 90's - was the single "Pure" and what bubble gum brit pop perfection it was. Then I stumbled upon this greatest hits collection.
Perhaps stumbled upon is the wrong word. I was watching the documentary Lagerfeld Confidential about Chanel's Karl Lagerfeld when the opening track stirred me out of my seat. It was "Pure." How strange I thought - to hear it in this film but also that I'd completely forgetten about the band. Turns out the have a whole string of hits and the one I'm playing here - "All I Want" - is by far the best.
