To celebrate its twenty five year anniversary, Lightning Seeds are re-issuing their seminal album Jollification. The 1994 LP, which would go on to sell 900,000 copies, was the Liverpudlian outfit’s third album and spawned the singles Lucky You, Marvellous, Change and Perfect.

To coincide with the re-release of the platinum record, Lightning Seeds will be performing Jollification in its entirety and in a way that it has never been performed live before, with the atmosphere and instrumentation of the original album very much to the fore. There will also be a Greatest Hits set, including Pure, Life Of Riley, Sugar Coated Iceberg and many of the other stand-out and most well-known tracks of their career. The shows will take place at the London Palladium on November 7th and the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall on November 27th.

A critical and commercial success, Jollification is widely regarded as one of the finest albums of the 90s era. As with the previous two albums Cloudcuckooland and Sense, Broudie played most of the instruments on Jollification himself. Recorded in an old laboratory in Liverpool City Centre alongside long time collaborators Simon Rodgers and Cenzo Townshend, the album features contributions from Terry Hall and Alison Moyet.

“I’m thrilled that Jollification is being reissued on vinyl to celebrate its 25th anniversary” says Broudie. “It evokes some great memories of that time for me. It’s brilliant to have the opportunity to celebrate the occasion with two very special nights at two iconic venues’.
