Mat Cheslin (born Matthew Cheslin, 28 November 1970, in Quarry Bank, Staffordshire) is a musician originally based in the Stourbridge area. He is most famous for being the bass player and founding member of the early 1990s indie punk band, Ned's Atomic Dustbin.
Ned's Atomic Dustbin had a string of hit singles, from 1990 to 1995, including "Happy", "Kill Your Television" and "Not Sleeping Around". The band had an unusual line-up of two bass players, and Cheslin generally played the traditional bass lines.
Cheslin has not partaken in the Ned's Atomic Dustbin reunions since 2000, until the Re:United gigs on 6 December 2008 and 23 May 2009, when original guitarist Gareth Pring (Rat) also played for the first time since the original line up split in 1995.
In a 2009 interview, Mat talked about the recent shows. "It's a bit of concept gig. It's like taking the clock back to 1991." He further adds, "It was great, it's been quite nostalgic. I haven't played for the whole time that I haven't been in the band, but some of the really old songs I remember more. You do really notice the difference in the really early songs. It was as exciting as it was when I was 17."
