Paul Cunningham / Atom Seed Singer Passes away

Paul Cunningham, best known as the vocalist with early 90’s Rockers Atom Seed, has passed away.

Atom Seed formed in London in 1989, storming the scene with energetic live performances and a 5K debut album, ‘Get In Line’. The flame was short lived however and even after securing a major record deal with London Records, the band imploded in 1993.

Chris Dale told MetalTalk: “It is with great sadness that I have to announce that my friend and former band mate in the Atom Seed passed away on Sunday. We shared so many good times together and made much good music along the way.

“I’ll be writing more about the Atom Seed very soon; in the meantime my thoughts are with his much loved family.

“RIP Paul Cunningham 1969-2021.”

  1. This is incredibly sad news. Paul was my next door neighbour for 3 years…..and a great friend we spent many a weekend chatting drinking and listening to music. We moved away so lost touch…. He was a gentle, kind man. Since we found out about his death my wife and I have been re listening to the music we listened to with him. Chris Dale.. if you read this could you contact me at email address provided…. Thx. PaulJ.
