Mark Harrington released a number of independent solo recordings in the late 80s, and 2 CDs in the 90s: 1993's Capricorn Flakes, and 1999's Trash Icon. The CDs are "alt-pop/rock" and the songs don't fit into a single genre. This is not your typical singer-songwriter music. The often quirky and unique production techniques support the lyrics that identify a social-critic using dry humour. The simple and immediate quality of the guitar-driven songs is preserved despite the use of electronics. Mark's voice has drawn comparisons to early David Bowie, and Peter Murphy (see reviews). Mark Harrington has recorded 2 cover songs that have gotten some attention: a cover of Gary Numan's Cars (on Trash Icon), and David Bowie's Changes (on Rubbernkkerz: 33 1/3rd).




Why this name?
The parents chose it.
Do you play live?
Back from a 7 year 'retirement', Mark will be rockin' near you soon... well, maybe not nearby....
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
MP3s have increased access, albiet at the monetary expense of artists in many cases.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Anything is possible.
Band History:
Mark Harrington released a number of independent solo recordings (tapes) in the late 80s, and 2 CDs in the 90s: 1993's Capricorn Flakes, and 1999's Trash Icon.

Around the year 2000, Mark began recording music that varied from his other work, and he gave it a new name: Rubbernekkerz. It is more textured, and the emphasis is placed on creating a mood. The debut CD contains a few songs in the previous style, but many in a different vein.

In the late 1980s, Mark played in the electronic rock trio Heik and the Shakes. Mark Harrington also formerly served as the Canadian correspondent for )ism(, a chapbook & writing distribution network. He writes bios and press kits for other musicians. Harrington has been described as a "perennial and voluntary outsider".
Your influences?
Billy Bragg, Bowie, Morrissey, Peter Murphy, The Clash, Rush, Rheostatics, XTC, U2
Favorite spot?

Equipment used:
