In 1985 while WKDN were playing nearly every week creating what shall be known as The Riverside Sessions, Mark was concentrating on his art and film-making. I always felt very fortunate to be associated with two very talented artists like Mark and Mr. Rudeforth, I tried a bit myself, mainly collage but didn't have a lot of talent for it. My favourite of Marks' was a collage called The Meat Is Pink, The Fat Is White and it was a collage with the title and a hunk of meat from a sainsburys advert. On the bottom of the meat he had added an erect penis and balls from a porn mag, it was an incredibly striking image. I had a lot of his artwork but they disappeared. He made a film in 1985 called Lipstick Arcade which I still have but it has not been seen for 23 years. This is the soundtrack for it. I'm not sure what equipment he used but it was very primitive.
