ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Two striking tracks from Paul Mark's STOWAWAYS collection. "How Do the Blind Become So Famous?" combines Brecht-ian angst with the futility of American politics, a vaudevillian cri de coeur lamenting the flight of sanity. "Reputation Tango" takes on the absurd rational of those who play along. Big fun from the stiletto pen of Paul Mark.

"One listen...and you’ll recognize more truth in a single song than in most other artist’s entire catalogues…Brave, bold, mysterious and so worth exploring.” - Greg Victor, parcbench.com

"Brings to mind a risqué, rabble-rousing vaudeville theater performance, with Mark bellowing his biting lyrics like a bawdy burlesque actor…Mark again displays his knack for making retro music sound ravishing."
- Mark Suppanz, The Big Takeover"

"Walking into a bar with a piano player in the corner, ignoring him at first until his songs start creeping into your consciousness and you find yourself paying more attention to him than drinks and conversation…Mark is that fantasy come to life.”
- Michael Tolland, Blurt
