SENSER

 

Senser, a politically charged rap rock UK band, originally formed in South West London from a group of friends in the late 1980s. The initial line-up comprised Nick Michaelson (guitar), Heitham Al-Sayed (vocals), Kerstin Haigh (vocals), John Morgan (drums), James Barrett (bass) and Alan "Hagos/Haggis" Haggarty (engineer, producer, programmer) and in 1992 they were joined by Spiral Tribe D.J, Andy Clinton.The band toured in support of psychedelic rockers the Ozric Tentacles in 1992.Soon they had developed a following in their own right and they were invited to play at Glastonbury. In 1993 the band were signed to Ultimate Records. 
Senser's sound was characterised by heavy guitars underneath often rapid, rapped lyrics which were concerned with a range of political issues from a left wing perspective, including gang violence, corporate abuse of power, mass surveillance and republicanism. Swooping female vocals and turntable scratching also contributed to the overall sound. Because of the political nature of their music, Senser were often compared to similarly political bands such as Rage Against The Machine, Skunk Anansie, Chumbawamba and The Levellers.
