Mark Hole – dirty base
From the album “F-sharp” (2008, Tenwest)
Hm, what to say about Mark Hole. He is obviously terribly talented, but also a bit
crazy eccentric. I have been following his Facebook account for a long while. It used to be silent, until this lockdown happened and he is very active now, posting something daily. 5 mins of Marky Madness (He is an artist! Remember that when you click the link 🙂 ) It’s funny though, entertaining. There is madness, and music, and also some more serious moments. Mark is a piece of art, an exceptional character; to be honest. And not always for the faint of heart.
I received the album “F-Sharp” from a friend who had seen Mark as a support act for Tori Amos (in 2008). She knew that I would probably like his music a lot. And I did.
I ordered more of Mark’s albums from him directly. And I received a lot more than just two CDs. I received a T-Shirt that smelled amazing, an autograph, a long handwritten letter, and a wooden chess piece. The chess piece was (according to the letter) the last he had left of an entire chess set that he had received from his ex-girlfriend who inspired songs like Torture Garden.
An exceptional artist and musician, I want to share so many more songs, but if you like these three songs, you will probably go to youtube and find more songs.
People Change Another live performance because it shows off his vocal skills
I hope I made you discover something new. Even if these songs are older, I think that we will hear more from this free-spirited London-based musician. Or at least, I hope so.
