Striking a chord in city.

IAN Broudie, frontman with Liverpool band The Lightning Seeds, can't wait for their gig back on home turf at the city's 02 Academy on February 11.

Recalling growing up in Liverpool, Broudie, who was also the studio magician behind the legendary Echo And The Bunnymen and has lately sprinkled stardust over The Coral and Zutons, said: "Growing up in Liverpool in the 1960s was like being in the centre of the earth. Both my brothers had a lot of records: Dylan, Cream, bluesy guitar players. Plus I had a little transistor radio and got Radio Caroline, from when pop music was very free.

"Then it was the 70s, Bowie played Liverpool Empire. It was as if everybody who was going to go on and make music in Liverpool was at this gig."

He formed The Lightning Seeds in 1989, going on to pen most of their acclaimed debut album Cloudcuckooland, featuring hit single Pure. More hits followed, including Lucky You, Change, Perfect and Marvellous. Then, in 2010 they returned to the live arena with a UK tour and studio album, Four Winds, the first crop of Lightning Seeds songs in 10 years.? Lightning Seeds, Liverpool 02 Academy, February 11,
