The lead singer of the punk rock band Senseless Things, Mark Keds, was found dead in his home. The news was reported Tuesday, January 12, by the band’s guitarist Ben Harding.
Keds had been struggling with drug addiction for a long time, he said.
“Though it put a strain on his work as part of Senseless Things and other projects, we prefer to remember him as the friend, brother and talented man we lost today,” he wrote on Facebook.
The exact cause of death is not yet known.
The band Senseless Things appeared in 1986 in London. The band members released four albums, but the band broke up in 1995. Keds performed with the bands Jolt, the Lams, The Wildhearts, Trip Fontaine and Deadcuts, and also took part in writing the hit song Can’t Stand Me Now by The Libertines.
