RUBBERNEKKERZ -- Harrington returns to his hermetic self-imposed prison to meditate on palindromes and concoct a batch of radically-different tunes with some co-conspirators. Repeated re-recording of songs to improve them, has been an ongoing dilemma.

Toronto, ON, June 19, 1999 -- In a recent live showcase performance at Stouffville, Ontario's bar Fullerton's (owned and operated by Grant Fullerton of 1970's supergroup Lighthouse of "Sunny Days" fame), Mark Harrington and band had their set unexpectedly cut short. It was later confirmed that the reason they were being hastily swept offstage on June 15th was that the club owner did not approve of their music. Harrington was reportedly quite honoured to have had the plug pulled by such a notable figure until later learning that Fullerton was not an original founding member of the band, but one of 30-odd members that graced the band in its time.


The most recent CD from Toronto area musician / artist Mark Harrington, entitled "Trash Icon", contains 13 original "alternative-pop" tunes as well as 2 bonus tracks: a cover of Gary Numan's 1979 hit Cars, and a "Retro 80's" version of an original called Catharine. The enhanced CD also contains HTML data ready for all web browsers.


The year of the first CD release, sees Mark playing at Mel Lastman Square, North York.

Since 1989, Mark Harrington has been performing in the Toronto area. Performances are attended by breakfast cereal-lovers and Mac users alike.
