Artist: The Mark Inside, Album: Static/Crash, Song: Sweet Little Sister

"Sweet little sister I can't take much more of this.  Come over here for just one little kiss."  The Mark Inside are a rock band from Toronto, Ontario.  They are Geoff Bennett, Gus Harris, Chris Levoir and Reade Ollivier.  They were signed to Maple Music Recordings and released their debut album, Static/Crash, in 2005.  This was actually a re-released and remixed version as the band had released it themselves before signing a deal with Maple Music.  Ian Blurton (see blogs 11/22/10, 6/30/11) handled the remix duties and as luck would have it, the band got to open for Ian's band, C'mon, as well as Magneta Lane (see blog 6/23/11).  The album had a couple of singles, including this dirty rocker, Sweet Little Sister.  You can check out the song on You Tube (  Unfortunately though, disagreements with their label caused a gap in recording and they didn't release another album until 2010.  They did sign on with Jim Abiss, who is responsible for producing some major albums in the U.K. by bands like the Artic Monkeys, Kasabian, Adele and the Sneaker Pimps.  He brought the band to England, produced their record and signed them to his Metal Box Recordings label.  They opened shows for The Hold Steady in England.  The band appears to be recording at the moment and is set to release their second full length.  You can follow them at  You can purchase their debut album on Itunes.  Thanks reading and enjoy!
