About this album
The End And The Beginning was Mark's first album of pop songs, with vocals by Tor James Faulkner. The project was ambitious and took several years to craft, with backing tracks and recordings made by Tor in several locations, before being assembled by Mark in Cheshire.

The End And The Beginning is a concept album with music in a typical eighties new-romantic style, about a man who enter a comatose state in the nineteen-eighties, awakening years later to a confusing future of strangers and robots.

The influences on these songs are many and varied, but there are definite shades of the Electric Light Orchestra, Ultravox, with some Pink Floyd and even Kate Bush. Mark himself provided the vocals on the tracks A.I. and Coma.
