The Phantom Rockers formed while Mark was living on a British Air Force base in Germany. It was there he met Mick Carroll also from England, Marcus Losen who was Dutch, and Olaf Schubert from Germany. The four got together and named the band after the comic figure The Phantom. After only three months and two shows the group landed a record deal with Tombstone Records. The band then released their first album “Kissed by a Werewolf,” which became the best selling LP on the label in 1989. In 1991 they released “Demon Lover” on Tombstone which sold over 50,000 units in Europe and established the Phantom Rockers as one of the top psychobilly bands in the world. Their next album “Born to Be Wild” (Tombstone Records) was met with critical acclaim and went on to hold a Top Ten position on the European charts. Support for their fourth album “Search and Destroy” (Tombstone Records) included major touring which first brought the band (and psychobilly music) to North America. After two more albums, several lineup changes and many years of extensive American touring, the European lineup split up and went back to the U.K. Mark, however, decided to stay in the U.S. In 1998 while hanging out in a bar in Dallas he met ex-Exploited guitar player Karl Morris, who also found his way to Texas via the U.K. The two reformed the Phantom Rockers and created a U.S. lineup.
