    A Tribute to Mark A. Reiser RIP (April 8, 1961 ~ September 15, 2016)

    Mark was a space age artist, who produced some amazing art for bands and artists, many of whom commissioned him for their album covers and tour and merchandise posters. He worked with some very distinguished bands and artists, including Roky Erickson, Uli Jon Roth and his Sky Academy, The Scorpions, Nik Turner, Huw Lloyd Langton, Hawklords, Spaceseed, and the space rock magazine Aural Innovations.

    Mark was a graduate of Moon Area High School and was employed for many years in various coordinating and managerial positions by Ditto Document Services, Inc. of Pittsburgh. He was an artist at heart, enjoyed performing music as a bass guitarist and creating artwork for a variety of other musical acts.

    However, apart from being a very talented artist and musician, Mark, or Dr Markles as some of us knew him by, was also a very warm, generous and very encouraging person, with amazing positivity. As I have been compiling this album, I have been struck at just how many folks who contributed, said how positive and encouraging he was to them when he worked on their album designs, as he was with all my own band's material. For the last 5 years he designed our Real Music Club Judge Trev memorial gig posters, and never charged anything for the work he did for these benefit gigs. He was such a big fan of all the bands and acts that he worked with.
    He also had a very empathetic, intuitive, nay telepathic knack of very quickly creating exactly the right images for the projects he worked on.

    When he came to the UK, to the Sonic Rock Solstice festival in June 2014, he met so many of his friends and artists and instantly connected in such a positive and warm way. Vicki, his long term partner and soulmate, said that this visit had been "the trip of his lifetime".

    In Mark's memory, many of the bands and artists Mark worked with, have collaborated in producing this compilation album, donating tracks that Mark would have well approved of. Crossing genres from space rock (of course!) to blues, heavy rock to electronica, from funk to prog to ambient.

    The CD artwork, put together by Paul Woodwright, is composed of Mark's work from all the various artists and bands he has worked with over his fabulously creative years, .

    All proceeds after production costs will go to Vicki, his long term partner and soulmate.

Time moves across the face Around tick the hands, Running through my fingers The centuries of sand. It befalls the most mighty At a speed we cannot outrun, We rise, we fall, we perish And burn beneath the sun. We’re all just children of children We’re all just children at play, The toys will all be broken Like the statues of their day. I stand amid the ruins As far as I can see A city once alive The statues lie about me. We make money or music Our souvenirs of the ride, But like footprints on the beach Just waiting for the tide. We’re all just children of children We’re all just children at play, The toys will all be broken Like the statues of their day.
