    Bryan was still a rocker so it's not a shock to see that listed. The next two singles were both hard rock. And i do recall The Chart Show including it. I was one of the many who bought it - in the first week, though, not when it was top.

    Here's The Chart Show Rock Chart (29th June 1991)

    Bryan is at 2 here - Extreme still top in the same equivalent chart week.

    I wonder what the chart sales week has changed to? Records are suddenly taking big leaps to number 1.

    Oh it seems i posted the Chart Show chart a week early looking at Skid Row who were brand new at 19 UK that week of the 15th cover date (and the actual top selling metal single). Of course the TV broadcast on the 8th corresponds to the chart broadcast that Sunday, the 9th.

    But it still means Lawnmower Death charted at least 2 weeks late on both charts.

    I see the band Catherine Wheel in the top 100 with their second single (an EP featuring an early version of I Want To Touch You). They should be on the rock charts with that. They were a borderline alt rock / shoegaze band. I think they're included later, like the Manics.
    Their frontman Rob Dickinson is Bruce's cousin.

    I'd forgotten about part of the top 200 being included in adverts in Music Week. I'd started buying Music Week every week when Record Mirror closed and can now remember the advert you've linked to.

    Some do have some issues of it. All I have are images from the adverts in Music Week. Actually this does make for some interest in this post. The answer is 139 (seemingly joint 139) on the chart they date as week ending 1 June.

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/f1fh1h36m9...Chart.jpg?dl=0

    I think only two prints where added in Music Week of the charts to try and get you to subscribe. It was eye watering in 1991 - 500 for the year I think. Roughly 1200 today.

    i don’t have anything other than what’s here sadly.

    no-one seems to have positions 76-100 for this period. They are in the Gallup chart reports which the BPI have and they were also published in the original (Music Week owned) ChartsPlus publication at the time but no-one seems to have copies of the publication.

    do you know if it made the unpublished UK top 100?

    Just noticed Scorpions are missing from Chart Show top ten - that's the first release of Wind Of Change when it only peaked at 53 in UK.

    Review of the Atom Seed single from the June 1 issue of Kerrang!

    "It jerks into life like Jane Addiction's 'Been Caught Stealing' but Rebel's wiry white-funk metal is closest to the crunch and yelp of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. The Atom Seed's major label debut single is vital and anthemic, a real shit-kicker. They don't sound so English these days though."

    Elsewhere in the same issue there's a competition to win one of three "mega exclusive paint-by-numbers Atom Seed shirts for you to decorate at your leisure!"
