Trash Icon info
Toronto area musician / artist Mark Harrington takes out the garbage with his second full-length CD: Trash Icon. The CD contains 14 original "punk-pop" tunes as well as a cover of Gary Numan's Cars. More visceral and darker than 1993's Capricorn Flakes CD, the lyrics maintain a quirky sense of humour. The simple and immediate quality of the guitar-driven songs is preserved despite the use of electronics suggested in the title. Relationships are often the focus of Harrington's critique, as he puts "the funk back in dysfunctional." The enhanced CD also contains HTML data ready for all web browsers, and video clips.
Harrington has been focusing recent energy into the Rubbernekkerz music. You may hear some FREE MP3 streams now!

Welcome Gary Numan fans: Hi! Well, I was hoping that at least this page would be recognized by search engines as having some Gary Numan content. You see, Gary Numan is mentioned here a few times for good reason. Gary Numan's tune Cars (which was a hit over 25 years back) has been covered on Mark Harrington's new CD. Well, anyone who likes Gary Numan music may well like to hear the Mark Harrington version, but they've never heard of Mark Harrington! So, if they use a search engine, they might just type in Gary Numan (remember, they don't know of Mark Harrington) to see the results. Surprisingly, this site doesn't list under Gary Numan! Even though his name (Gary Numan) is in here! So, I figured it was important to make sure that anyone who liked Gary Numan (or maybe even the new Fear Factory version of Cars --which also features Gary Numan on vocals) deserves a chance to hear the Mark Harrington version on the new Trash Icon CD. You can hear it right now if you like (MP3 or RealAudio) on the sounds page of this Mark Harrington site!
