Known to their fans as The Neds, the band's name came from an episode of The Goon Show, a BBC radio program from the 1950s that featured legendary actor Peter Sellers. Ned's Atomic Dustbin has a rare two bass player line up with Alex Griffi playing melody high on one bass and Matt Cheslin handling the regular bass lines.

Hit songs quickly followed with singles such as "Kill Your Television" in 1990 and "Happy" in 1991, which reached number sixteen in the UK. Their reputation for exciting live shows attracted the attention of major record labels and eventually, they signed with Sony Records on the proviso that they be allowed to release their music through their own Furtive label, giving them substantial creative control while still enjoying the benefit of the major label's distribution and advertising clout.
Their first release, Bite, featured two singles and two demo tracks, but because it was released without their consent, God Fodder from 1991 is considered their official debut album. Are You Normal? and Brainbloodvolume followed with several compilations and B-side albums in between. The 2000's saw many live albums and a best of compilation release from the band.
