Contemporary blues guitarist/ multi-instrumentalist Mark J Perry is equally happy mangling a Strat in ole SRV mode, blasting on a Gibson Les Paul, coaxing aural saucyness from a Hammond L102 Hammond + Leslie 142, tickling the ivories, thumping out throbular grooves on a Fender Jazz Bass... and sometimes larking around with soft synths bits and bobs...
some day.. an album will come...
Mark's (still) trying to get time to commit some stuff to tape (or RAM).. Might sound something like this:

Bill Nelson - 1st influence, 'painterly' guitar..
Jeff Beck - there's only one
Stevie Ray Vaughan - power + soul
Eric Johnson - nice intervals and melody
Peter Green - talking better than shouting
Gary Moore - attitude, vibrato, fluidity, space
Weather Report - groove + originality
Jan Akkerman - genius with European slant
Lewis Taylor - can 1 person have all that talent?
Jimi Hendrix - goes without saying
God No! Guitar/Keys/voc
2005 Stroud Blues and Beyond Festival short open-mic spot - great fun
Iron Age: True Lyrical Movement - Keyboards 2002 to 2003. Subject to agreement with ex TLM-ers, Mark may put some bio/demos up here.. it's a shame the band folded because there was so much potential, and there was some interest from WMI (Warner Music International).
Stone Age: The Hawds from the Yeast - Lead Guitar - 199? to 200? (replaced the sadly missed Steve Waller who was Manfred Mann's guitarist). The Hawds are a fine live band.
