Band page created in 2011.
Mike Marlin was born in suburban London in the sixties. He dropped out of University when he discovered music and London and girls. It was a good time: The Police, The Jam, The Clash, Echo & the Bunnymen, The Undertones, Dr Feelgood, The Stranglers, Souixsie and the Banshees, Elvis Costello, The Cure.
Armed with his guitar and a 4 track cassette machine, Mike wrote songs and made tapes in his bedroom. He played in bands that never made it. In 1982 he went into an alcoholic depression and gave up on music as a career.
Mike was rescued by technology. He became obsessed with computers when most people thought they were magic. He wrote code in the day and songs at night. The code worked and people bought it. But the music remained unheard. For the next twenty five years Mike was a geek with a secret hobby. He spent a lot of time in the basement.
In 2009, Mike met a music producer, James Durrant. Mike played him some songs. 18 months later Mike finished the record he started 25 years ago. Now he is the front man and he hasn't run away - yet.
