• North Carolina-born Mark Germino started out as a poet before moving into the Singer-Songwriter genre in the 70s. After moving to Nashville he received a song-writing contract that resulted in over 50 of his songs being recorded by other artists before he was finally handed a record deal by RCA.
• Although being signed to RCA Nashville, both of these albums were recorded in England in 1987 and 1986.
• "Caught In The Act Of Being Ourselves” from 1987 was the album on which Mark’s most famous song ‘Rex Bob Lowenstein’ appeared. This was a massive air-play hit in the UK and told the story of a DJ who refused to change his playlist on the orders of his radio station bosses.
• "London Moon and Barnyard Remedies” preceded "Caught In The Act . . .” in 1986.
• On both albums he was backed by British musicians from legendary folk-rock band Fairport Convention.
• Production was by Paul Samwell-Smith, the ex-Yardbird who’d worked with Carly Simon and Cat Stevens and was something of a singer-songwriter specialist.

• As they approach their 25th anniversary year in 2015, UK Prog-rockers Landmarq release their first ever anthology – a compilation of some of the best of the band's work from 1991 to the present.
• Featuring two outstanding, multi-award-winning vocalists - Tracy Hitchings (1998-present) and Damian Wilson (1991-1995) - "Origins” is released as a double-CD set, comprising:
• Disc One – 'The Tracy Years’ features a mix of studio and live recordings from Landmarq with Tracy Hitchings, plus a brand new track, also entitled ‘Origins’. This previously unreleased track was written and recorded by the band especially for this release and has been produced by Landmarq’s own multi-award-winning keyboard player and producer, Mike Varty.
• Disc Two – 'The Damian Years’ includes long-time favourite tracks from Landmarq’s first three studio albums featuring the band's original singer Damian Wilson, now internationally acclaimed as a singer-songwriter and lead vocalist of Threshold, as well as for his work with Rick Wakeman's English Rock Ensemble, Headspace, Star One and Maiden uniteD.
• This stunning collection from Landmarq's significant back catalogue, plus the exclusive brand new song ‘Origins’, is sure to appeal to existing fans of all eras of the band, as well as serving as a great introduction for anyone discovering Landmarq for the first time.
