ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
[Harrington] performs in a spare, electric-folk sort of style spawned from a wide variety of influences, and has penned some clever lyrics to go with it.
-- Pulse Niagara. Feb. 1994

Peter Murphy planted his tongue firmly in cheek, borrowed a bit of Frank Zappa's sharp wit, changed his name to Mark Harrington, and released Capricorn Flakes.
-- Chaos Review (Niagara). Feb. 1994

Q: Who the he_ _ is Mark Harrington and why the he_ _ do I want to write an entire article on him?
A: Because of "Message", the last cut on his new, self financed, indie CD Capricorn Flakes (as well as the rest of the album).
-- Jim English, Exclaim (!*@#). June 1993


Harrington is a strong songwriter... [and] clever, dry lyricist.
Credit to him for designing his own tongue-in-cheek CD packaging and for successfully self-producing his work.
-- Chart. June 1993

T.E.A.


[Harrington] performs in a spare, electric-folk sort of style spawned from a wide variety of influences, and has penned some clever lyrics to go with it. A lot of his stuff is very reminiscent of early Rheostatics, though he can change direction at a moment's notice. "Beg to Differ", for instance, sounds pretty darned close to Peter Murphy... -- Pulse Niagara.. Feb. 1994 Peter Murphy planted his tongue firmly in cheek, borrowed a bit of Frank Zappa's sharp wit, changed his name to Mark Harrington, and released Capricorn Flakes. Not only is the album great to listen to, but its sharp sense of humour -- generally mocking the pomposity of a lot of 'arty' musicians (including himself at times) -- never fails to evoke a chuckle from me. -- Chaos Review. Feb. 1994 Q: Who the hell is Mark Harrington and why the hell do I want to write an entire article on him? A: Because of "Message", the last cut on his new, self financed, indie CD Capricorn Flakes (as well as the rest of the album). -- Exclaim (!*@#). June 1993 Harrington is a strong songwriter... [and] clever, dry lyricist. Credit to him for designing his own tongue-in-cheek CD packaging and for successfully self-producing his work. -- Chart. June 1993 ...a song called Wear Black from the Capricorn Flakes CD. I must say that's a song that, lyrically, I wish I would have written years ago. -- Kevin Press (CKLN , Toronto, ON) Summer 1993 Guitarist Mark Harrington plays with a spare elegance that manages to imply as much as it actually delivers. -- Now. March 1989

Mark's work is both humorous and reflective; satirical and witty. With a voice reminiscent to Peter Murphy, his music borrows from pop, folk and indie rawk, creating a fully harmonic aural experience. -- David Michael McNamara, )ism(
