Max’s Memorabilia

Formed in New York’s Lower East Side in 1976 by rock’n’roll singer Philippe Marcade and ex-boxing champ Steve Shevlin, The Senders were known for their raw RHYTHM & BLUES sound and 50s greasers look, often tagged by the press as PUNK BLUES. Johnny Thunders joined in for a month in ’78 before they settled on their legendary line-up with Wild Bill Thompson on guitar and drummer Marc Bourset.
