Early-' 90s Manchester England freak show Ned's Atomic Dustbin dealt in earnest sentiments and the coolest forms of musical geekiness available in the early days of alternative rock's kingdom. Two bass players, exploding fashions and videos alike, cheeky yet lighthearted lyrics, and an eventual turn to electronica were just some of what made up the Ned's experience in their short-lived glory days. Overlooked by the masses while bands like EMF and Jesus Jones scored platinum hits, the group still managed to gather a devoted fan base and record enough music to warrant several greatest-hits collections after their breakup in 1995, and in the wake of a reunion five years later. The 2012 addition to this lineage comes in the form of Anthology, a 21-track collection that gathers together a scattershot cross-section of tunes from all three studio albums as well as earlier singles and different mixes of two of the group's best-known hits "Grey Cell Green" and "Kill Your Television." CD copies come with a second DVD disc that includes 13 music videos, live performances, and ephemeral footage of the band in their prime.
