Formed in New York in 1977 by exiled French rock'n'roll
singer Philippe Marcade and professional boxer-bassist Steve Shevlin.
With much help from pal Johnny Thunders they quickly become one of
Max's Kansas City's favorites. Joined in 1979 by guitarist Wild Bill
Thompson (Robert Gordon band, Stray Cats Tour, Savoy Brown …) and
drummer Marc Bourset (Victims) for their legendary next decade. After
Steve Shevlin becomes deaf (!) they are joined by Richie Lure on bass
(Brother of Heartbreaker Walter Lure) becoming one of New York's scene
most popular bands by 1988. Well on their way to massive popularity
in the US disaster strikes and they lose Marc Bourset then Richie
Lure in drug related deaths. Battered but not beaten The Senders replace
their two beloved lost members with legendary drummer Ned Brewster(Action
Swingers) and bassist Danny Ly (The Bostwanas) for their current line-up.
Singer Phil Marcade has also along the years taken part in various
projects such as first drummer for GangWar (with Johnny Thunders and
ex MC5 Wayne Kramer) and singer for blue eye soul band The Backbones
(1983-1987). The SENDERS are still currently very active with their
brand of raunchy rhythm'n blues in New York City and most of the east
coast and have no immediate plans for stopping.
