The Senseless Things were the perennial support band. This was quite undeserved as they were in fact good. They were for the indie kids who were into the Poppies, Mega City Four or Ned’s, not really for more traditional shoegazers like myself.
I saw them 15th June 1991 at Southampton East Point, strangely they were headlining not supporting. The main reason I went is because there was a lack of good gigs in the area at that time. This was the first and only time I went to Southampton East Point. It was a school, the gig was in the hall. I was seeing a band who had just signed to a major record label, and had the uber cool Jamie Hewlett doing their record sleeves, appearing in a school. At their t-shirt stand they were selling the classic “Pop Kid” t-shirts too.

Jamie Hewlett at the time was doing work in a very cool magazine called Deadline this was before doing the Monkey opera which was used by the BBC at the Olympics or the Gorillaz. Cass the drummer from the Senseless Things was recruited into the Gorillazs.
