Natural and synthetic textures blend to create a spacey alt-rock backdrop for introspective lyrics flavored with dark humor. The styles include influences from dark-wave to prog-rock.
In 2006, Mark Harrington first released music from his alter-ego, Rubbernekkerz. He has also released 3 CDs under his own name, but underwent somewhat of a shift in focus along the way, to a more edgy, moody, and cinematic sound under the moniker Rubbernekkerz. Mark's voice has drawn comparisons to David Bowie, and Peter Murphy. One press article accurately described him as a "perennial and voluntary outsider".
In the late 1980s, Mark played in the electronic rock trio Heik and the Shakes. Subsequently, he co-founded the Toronto Experimental Artists artist-run cassette label in 1988, upon which he would release a number of indie cassettes, prior to his first CD release (Capricorn Flakes) in 1993. www.Rubbernekkerz.com and www.MarkHarrington.info tell more of the story.
