Mark Freddy then & ...
Mark Freddy honed his performing skills as a street musician traveling around
influenced by the likes of David Bowie, Talking Heads, and XTC; he made
forty-something analog recordings at four different studios with eight different sound
engineers between 1982-1989. These were primarily done as record company demos,
but a number of them found their way to the airwaves. Now for the first time,
nineteen of these have been digitally remastered and compiled into an album
titled Circular Reason. Many have
found these songs a little quirky to outright zany. Still, there are some
serious themes sprinkled throughout. And although the accompanying musicians
named The Flanger Managers are serious artists themselves, their performances on
these tracks are fun and freewheeling. The Flanger Mangers are not a band per
se, but a group of musicians who are friends, friends of friends and family
who've mingled together through the recording studio and live performances.
Their contributions on these recordings are obvious (see album liner notes).
Freddy & The Flanger Managers debuted November 1, 1982; not as a live show,
but on a
Mark went on to
form a world jazz band called Chasm (est.
