Tomorrow's Here Today: In Conversation with Ian Broudie
Thursday 26 October, 7.30pm
BME is delighted to host the book launch event for Ian Broudie’s memoir, Tomorrow’s Here Today – Lighting Seeds, Football and Cosmic Post Punk.
Few musicians have lived a musical life as rich as the songwriter and producer Ian Broudie.
From recording the glorious uplifting psychedelic pop of his band The Lightning Seeds, to producing bands like Echo & The Bunnymen and The Fall, Ian has journeyed from the energy and potential of the 1970s punk scene to the madness of 90s indie – and out the other side.
Throughout nearly fifty years of making music, he has had a front row seat working with generations of fantastic musicians as they created countless ground-breaking records. In Tomorrow's Here Today, he reveals what he has learnt about creativity, how to work with musicians touched by genius, and what it is like to stumble through an exploding industry without losing sight of your dreams.
Along the way Ian shares how he wrote the million selling album Jollification and how – along with the comedians David Baddiel and Frank Skinner – he wrote and recorded the only single in chart history to reach number one in the UK singles chart on four separate occasions. Three Lions has since become the undisputed unofficial anthem of English football, soundtracking heartbreaking defeats as well as the wondrous victories of the Lionesses.
Following 2022’s long awaited Lighting Seeds comeback, Ian reflects on a life of cosmic adventures spent in thrall to the power of music
