With his distinct slide / strum approach and two string bass – the late Mark Sandman helmed alternative “low rockers” Morphine for five remarkable studio slabs and archival live releases.
Melding blues, jazz, beat generation, and traditional rock – Sandman was a prolific composer with a baritone croon who also experimented with variations on the traditional bass with one and three string configurations, sometimes incorporating guitar strings and altered tunings.
Mark was also a comic artist (The Twinemen), a name which Morphine drummer Billy Connelly adopted for an ensemble that paid tribute to the late bassist.
