Neds Atomic Dustbin Bio

Ned's Atomic Dustbin are an English Grebo rock band formed in Stourbridge in West Midlands in November 1987. The band took their name from an episode of The Goon Show. The band were unusual for using two bass players in their lineup: Alex Griffin played melody lines high up on one bass, and Matt Cheslin played the regular bass lines on the other. This gave the band a tense and highly driven sub-hardcore sound with distorted indie guitars and complicated baggy drum beats.

The band was formed while at sixth form college and they recorded their first album while still teenagers. This led to a strong teenage fanbase with a reputation for enjoying stage diving and moshing at their gigs. The band were also noted (and sometimes ridiculed) for their early image which consisted of uniformly crimped hair, short trousers and T-shirts. The Neds (as their fans referred to them) were well known for their T-shirts and produced over 86 different designs within three years. (In 2009, Jonn Penney stated, "We're still adding designs - old habits die hard".) They also have branched out into shorts, hats and other merchandise items.
