Hidden Diamonds - That Petrol Emotion
Our latest Hidden Diamond is a tune called "Sensitize" from the album Chemicrazy by That Petrol Emotion, an Irish band with the exception of their singer, American-born Steve Mack. The band's personnel has shifted since their inception in 1984. The Line-up is rounded out by John Marchini on bass, drummer Ciaran McLaughlin and guitarists Damian O'Neill and Raymond Gorman. This song is a true alt-pop gem, a wickedly clever bit of songwriting by McLaughlin. Although they built a loyal fan base over the five albums and ten years of their career, they never achieved any major acclaim, consequently the band split amicably in 1994. Enjoy.
