Lost in the fog of decades, this southern California mystery man merges surf-worthy harmonies with dreamy psych-pop. Mark Eric, we hardly knew ye.
I stumbled on this album on a Beach Boys fan group. I feel like it's a longingly nostalgic wave goodbye to the sweet socal pop of the 60s. Love it.
Sadly Mark passed away in 2009. We were friends in the 1970’s then reconnected 30 years later. His real name was Mark Alan Malmborg. He was a vibrant and talented artist. I’ll share this article with his sister. It’ll mean a lot to her. Cherie
Another beautifully written piece and thank you so much for the shout-out. I love how well you compiled and narrated the small amount of information available. Some serious digging skills you’ve got there!
It would be so cool if the artist himself were to find out about this article. Can’t be that hard to contact him, right? 😅
