Bio

Mark Curtis spent his teens in Adelaide’s blue-collar northern suburbs devouring 60s Brit pop and 90s grunge, before bombing out of high school due to an undiagnosed and obscure learning condition. In a quest for truth, he embarked on an existential odyssey of introspection comprising of monastery meditations and squat house psychedelic jams.
With his new band, The Flannelettes, Mark, a gifted multi-instrumentalist who has played some of Adelaide’s biggest festivals, including WOMAdelaide, Scouted and The Adelaide Fringe, has managed to cram his eclectic life and influences into under 3 minutes of quirk-pop gold on ‘Round Meal’, a track that has shades of 90s Australian indie favourites Custard, Regurgitator, Little Red and Even and lyrical themes similar to Triple J favourites Tiny Little Houses.
