Links To Peel

Peel discovered the band in early 2000 after being given some of their records by their label Transformed Dreams during a visit to Groningen. The following year he saw the group perform at the Noorderslag festival in the city, later citing them as the best band he saw there that year [1]. At the end of 2001, listeners voted Seedling's track 'Sensational Vacuum' at number 37 in the 2001 Festive Fifty. In 2003, Peel nominated their song 'I'm Jill's Smoking Revenge' as single of the month in March 2003 (Peel's Record Box) and the album 'Let's Play Boys And Girls' as album of the month in June 2003 (Peel's Record Box).
