FIRST NEW RECORDING FOR 22 YEARS
Senseless Things celebrate their first show since 1995 at Shepherd’s Bush Empire (25th March), with the release of a new single ‘Lost Honey’, with rare artwork (pictured above) by artist Jamie Hewlett (who did most of the Senseless Things artwork, long before a well-known cartoon band). A very limited-edition 7” vinyl of ‘Lost Honey’ will be available at the Shepherds Bush Empire show.

Since the breakup of the Senseless Things, their members have gone onto to play in various other guises and outfits – Cass worked with Gorillaz since their inception, bassist Morgan joined Muse as their live keyboard-player and singer Mark Keds co-wrote ‘Can’t Stand Me Now’ with The Libertines.
Having sold out their warm-up show at The New Adelphi Club in Hull on 19th March, there are a limited number of tickets still available for what will be a very special night at Shepherds Bush Empire:
Support for SBE comes from two loveable and noisy female trios – Skinny Girls Diet and The Tuts.
Stalwarts of the live scene in the early ‘90’s and known for hits such as ‘Easy To Smile,’ ‘Too Much Kissing,’ ‘Homophobic Asshole’, ‘Hold it Down’ and ‘Got it At The Delmar,’ Senseless Things disbanded in ’95.
Mark Keds – now currently fronting his new band Deadcuts – formed both Jolt and The Lams. Deadcuts have just scored their biggest hit to date, “Aries” collaborating with Brooklyn outfit Flatbush Zombies which features on the new Marvel “Black Panther” series.
Cass Browne formed Delakota, before joining the hugely successful animated-band Gorillaz as both live drummer and scriptwriter. In addition to playing with Penguin Cafe, he is now also part of Keds’ dark n’ deadly Deadcuts line-up, currently finishing their new LP, “Hit On All Sixes”.
Morgan Nicholls released his own solo record under the name M. Organ, before joining up with various artists including Vent 414 and The Streets, in addition to performing with The Who at the 2012 Olympics. Nicholls currently plays live with stadium-botherers Muse.
Guitarist Ben Harding went on to join 3 Colours Red, who toured extensively and signed to Alan McGee’s Creation label, scoring two top 20 LPs and all of three seconds on the soundtrack of ‘Kill Your Friends.’ He currently plays with rabble-rousers Thee Faction and the soon-to-be-legendary The Charlemagnes.
The Senseless Things Night at The Empire show, promoted by CrossTown Concerts, promises to be a unique night of fun and fury, with the band being joined by special guests, and friends old and new.
