Mark Barton – Sunday Experience compilation

The late Mark Barton wrote millions of words about “strange sounds for freaky people” on his Sunday Experience blog. Bearsuit Records have put together an incredible compilation of diverse music that Mark championed, in memory of Mark and in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support – we’re happy we could contribute too.

For download and CD, 3 hours of music – please share and support if you can. Thank you! x
