Mark Mallman is someone I’ve known since the early 1990’s. Back when he was a wee lad in Waukesha, he was in Uncle Smooth and the Lost Mayans, and then later did his own thing with an accoustic guitar. He’s always been a bit odd, or visionary, or weird, or nutty, or… well, you get the idea. A little bit crazy, a little big genius – that’s what I liked about Mallman. Oh, and he’s funny too!
But enough sucking up to Mallman, ok, not quite enough… I got to see Mallman perform at Mad Planet this weekend and wow, I was blown away!
I’m not even sure how to describe it other than a peculiar mix of rock and roll, keyboards, crazy lyrics, and that Mallman style, all mixed up into something very unique. I wish I could have seen Marathon 2 last year, where he (and many others) performed for over 52 hours!
Anyway, if you want to see something that’s entertaining, and rockin’ and (possibly) memorable, go see Mark Mallman, and tell him Pete sent ya…
(Oh, Mark get’s some bonus points for this: We haven’t seen each other in over 10 years, and he tells me I look young. Woohoo!)
