Mark Keds RIP
« on: January 11, 2021, 07:44:50 PM »
According to the Senseless Things page on FB. Only 50 years old.
Really sad news - a talented and prolific song writer. Senseless Things were of the first bands I ever saw live and their records still really stand up. Glad I got to see the 2017 reunion.

Sad news. Senseless Things were an early gig for me too - genuinely exciting live band.

RIP Keds

Ah, this is sad. Part of my late 80s introduction to alternative music.

Actually, this really is sad news. Have fond memories of those early 90s singles with the Jamie Hewlett illustrated sleeves. 50 way too young, orbviously. RIP.

In my top 10 gigs of all time and I’m not ashamed to admit I had tears in my eyes when they launched into ‘Too Much Kissing’. 

Very sad news.

Likewise - I didn't see them until 1993, by which time they'd dropped most of their hyper speed early tunes, so I was over the fucking moon when they started playing songs like 'Trevor' & 'Back to Nowhere'.

Ah, this is such awful news.

No chance of a Transphobic Asshole single dedicated to Graham Linehan then?

Aw balls.  He did look completely fucked and living on borrowed time about ten years ago, and I wouldn't have been surprised to hear this news back then.  Wasn't at the 2017 gig but watching a recording of it seemed to indicate he was doing better than he looked, and had maybe turned a corner.  Not that we know what got him, of course.

Senseless Things are weirdly under glass for me - saw them loads of times and every time was great, but was never quite as into them as I felt I maybe should have been.  They never did anything better than 'Too Much Kissing', and the problem is they did that very early.  I really wish 'Homophobic Asshole' has been a better song, because the build-up to that being released was magical.  My mate got sent home from school for wearing a t-shirt of it and everything.
