Gig of the week: Senser, Credit to the Nation and Collapsed Lung cram onto the same bill

Pad Presents have pieced together a stellar line-up to rattle the walls of Bedford Esquires this Saturday (December 9).

Senser have bagged the top spot. The band released three huge alternative club anthems in the mid-90s with Switch, Eject & The key as well as denting the national charts with their Top 5 album Stacked Up.

With a further two albums released the band underwent a few line-up changes over the years but fast forward into 2017 and the band are now back together as the original line-up delivering the same powerful sound first unleashed in the 90s.

Credit to the Nation, who burst onto the scene in the early 90s bravely sampling the Nirvana classic ‘Smells Like Teenspirit,' with the huge club anthem with ‘Call it What You Want’ have bagged a support role.
Signed to the One Little Indian Label ‘Credit’ released his debut top 20 album ‘Take Dis’ as well as hooking up with record label mates Chumbawamba to release the anthemic anti-fascist anthem ‘Enough is Enough’.

In 2017 the band are working on their yet untitled album due for release on the locally based Crossflow Recordings and the current line-up features label boss and local producer Karl Morey.

Think things can't get much meatier? Wait a moment - Harlow-based alt-hip-hop crew Collapsed Lung are breathing again and will be opening up the Esquires party.

While probably best known for their Euro 96/Coca Cola tie-in “Eat My Goal” (which charted in both 1996 and 1998), the band also released two albums, both being credible outputs but at the same time keeping the humour thread throughout.
Musically, the underpinning was always classic hip hop beats, but overlaid with bass, guitar and sampladelia betraying a wide palette of influences – everything from 60s and 70s movie soundtracks to spiky post-punk. At one point they even covered “Connection” by their labelmates Elastica to great effect.
