Sowing the Seed of rock

“Saturday Night Live” may have lost its bite and its edge, but for rising Austin, Texas, rock quartet Seed, it’s flattering to have fans in high places.

The band appeared several weeks ago on “Late Night With Conan O’Brien,” and attracted quite a “SNL” following.

“Everybody came down,” said lead singer Chadwick Salls. “Janeane Garfalo came down, then Adam Sandler and Tim Meadows.

“It was cool to hang out and talk with them. Obviously, we’re not selling 17,000 records a week, but luckily they like us and are into our music. Let’s hope the rest of the country starts taking it in.”

The band’s first single, “Rapture,” saw regular rotation on MTV’s “120 Minutes” and “Alternative Nation.” Salls is hoping for much the same with Seed’s follow-up, “Doe.” The four shot the video in Atlanta earlier this week with director Bill Ward.

Seed’s Mechanic/Giant album, “Ling,” was released in late June. Salls said they’re buoyed by late-blooming success for acts like Weezer, Candlebox and Blind Melon.

“We’re taking it all with a grain of salt,” he said. “Not to sound conceited, but I think our album’s good enough to be with everybody else.

“If we don’t sell a million records, it’s not going to kill us. We just want to sell enough so our label will say, ‘Okay, that’s a good job. Do the next record.’ Just as long as we can do what we want to do, that’s all that matters.”
