On the back of these hits, Senseless Things’ third LP Empire Of The Senseless would provide them with a Top 30 album. Dissatisfied with the state of indie rock, their approach became heavier and more politicised – a point borne out by their 1992 single, Homophobic Asshole.
Following increasing clashes with their record company, major league success would elude the Senseless Things, ultimately causing their split in 1995.
Mark joined Britrock crew The Wildhearts in the same year, lasting long enough to make it on to the cover of Kerrang! magazine as that band then descended into turmoil.
Meanwhile, the rest of the Senseless Things played on in different bands, Ben Harding joining 3 Colours Red, Cass Browne ending up in Gorillaz and then Loup GarouX, while Morgan Nicholls released a solo album prior to playing with The Streets and Muse.
Amid the odd Senseless Things reformation, Mark continued to forge his own path, forming Kerrang! favourites Jolt and releasing one acclaimed album. Several other musical projects followed, culminating in the formation of the dark-hearted Deadcuts, releasing two albums that proved his songwriting prowess remained intact.
