More About Mark
Most stuff by Mike Leigh and Woody Allen.
Lots! Currently listening to a lot of ECM jazz but can’t live without late Beethoven, Bach, Shostakovich, blues-rock guitarists, Steve Martyn, Dylan, and Springsteen.
Mountaineering in the Lofoten Islands, Norway, which have been described as being like the Chamonix Alps rising straight from the sea.
On the bike, a banana, flapjack and/or energy bar usually keeps the pedals turning.
Can’t remember, but my first real bike was a Holdsworth with Reynolds 531 frame and Campag Record chainset – still going strong after 32 years!
Ice cream van driver/salesman.
