Since I ran brothers-in-rock Mega City 4 last night, it was only fitting I run Senseless Things tonight. Both starting out around the same time and both periodically touring with each other during their formative years, Senseless Things were considered by many to be ahead of their time.
Punk with leanings towards Indie, Pop Punk and Melodic Hardcore, Senseless Things were, like Mega City 4, an influential and well regarded band both by critics and audiences alike. Together for roughly the same amount of time (10 years, give or take a few months), Senseless Things released some 7 albums and some 19 singles/eps before packing it in around 1995. The advantage they had over Mega City 4 was choice of labels. Senseless Things were on Epic worldwide and that made for a better shot at a broader audience.
Tonight it’s an early session – actually, the first one for John Peel, recorded on May 14, 1990.
Blistering, fast-paced, moderately out-of-control and ultimately not music to fall asleep to, Senseless Things were, like Mega City 4, a shot of adrenaline.
