  • 'Mark Does God' Album Out Now!

    That's right, folks. The following ten songs constitute my un-holy (and innumerate) trinity of 'religious' tunes

    Simply download the songs (for free, obviously - no one buys songs anymore) and you will have what used to be called an album, but is now called several tracks that have been downloaded for free. It really is that simple. And you're welcome

    Holy Mother

    Hypernatural

    You Are Here

    In Paradise

    The Beauty Of Creation

    You Promised

    The Life Of Me

    Magic Spell

    To Think

    Take Me Home

    I'm loving "Holy Mother!" Kind of like XTC crossed with Spiders from Mars.

    Great stuff. Once again, you have maybe the best rock voice of anyone I know personally, 3DW or online. You always sound like you're on the radio.

          And of course, no "Mark Does God" collection is truly complete without the special, overproduced remix of Magic Spell!

          Come to think of it, a cool project would be SSS producing a The Songs of Mark L compilation with his songs done by anyone except Mark. Ernest and I have already done our contributions, so we're partway there. C'mon, everyone here likes his songs, so pick one and do it. Just because you think you can't do it as well is no reason not to. Hey, it didn't stop me!

          The other good news is you can do cover versions of Mark's songs and not only does he not sue you, he actually enjoys it.

            I appreciate that, mate. Thanks

            Here's an el-cheapo video I put together to accompany the song

                I love listening to your and Ernest's versions of my songs, and it would be quite amazing to have a 'Songs of Mark L' compilation, done by the uber-talented folk on here. I'd die a happy man

                  This is not your typical dance mural. Very pretty besides. If it wasn't free I'd buy a copy.

                    Very kind of you, Sir

                    Most of that is Craig's work. I just wrote it and sang on it

                      Love that bridge on Holy Mother! where the vocal harmonies layer on in classic 60s mode - very very nice.

                      The vocals are standout in the song, as Blue mentioned. Your vocals sound more confident to me, which is the key to good vocals. Of course you may not feel more confident, but that's beside the point

                      I'm on to the other songs just now - I'll feedback when appropriate...

                        I like 'Hypernatural' - - good rock/postpunk groove.

                              Oh, that's all? Jeez, what a slacker. We all know everyone just listens to songs because they like particular mic preamps. Songwriting and singing...such a minor part of what makes a song appealing
