Somewhere between the C-86 movement and the Madchester (a.k.a. 'baggy' ) scene, there was a little British punk revival in the late 80's. Bands like Mega City Four, Red Letter Day, Senseless Things et al toured the country in ratty t-shirts, put out seven inches and kept the guitars and tempos rared up. Though they came to North American shores on the heels of The Stone Roses, The Charlatans and The Happy Mondays, Ned's Atomic Dustbin never sounded much like part of that so-called "second summer of love", after all their most memorable song is called "Kill Your Television".
