Album Review

Jamie Hewlett announced his intentions to combine the sheer joy of great pop music with his unique, personality-filled creations on the sleeve artwork of this release.

Highlights include "Everybody's Gone," "Best Friend," and "Radio Spiteful." ~ Michael M. Murphy, Rovi

Sadly for them, they were a few years ahead of their time as bands like Green Day and Blink 182 became worldwide stars using the same template as the Senseless Things. Formed in 1987 in the town of Twickenham in West London, the band (Mark Keds on guitar and vocals, Ben Harding on guitar and vocals, Cass Browne on drums, Morgan Nicholls on bass) made a series...
