Mark Newington

Here's everything published by this contributor on musicOMH.


Mark has been reasonably obsessed with music since hearing The Beach Boys and The Monkees at a young age. There are regular family complaints about what music is being played over breakfast and dinner and there tends to be only one person choosing in his home. He is a fairly recent writer but a life long gig attendee. Mark prefers musicians with strong lyrical message and as such his favourite artists are Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Tindersticks, Leonard Cohen, The National, Low, The Handsome Family, Sufjan Stevens, Arab Strap, The Magnetic Fields. Mark will regularly be found at a gig, in a record shop or drinking tea.
