Mark Burgess established his reputation as a lyricist and songwriter with UK band, The Chameleons (UK) at the dawn of the 80's and the band went on to become one of the UK's most influential guitar bands of modern times, having been cited by the likes of Interpol, Radiohead, Oasis, Editors, Verve and Manic Street Preachers, to name a few. The band's debut album Script of the Bridge is regarded as one of the best debuts by an English band. In the wake of Script two more albums followed, What Does Anything Mean Basically, and Strange Times for Geffen Records, the latter produced by Dave M. Allen (co-Producer of The Cure's Head On The Door. On its release Strange Times was cited by New York Times as being "possibly the best rock album since Revolver."
Mark has toured with The Chameleons in Europe and the US many times since then and continues to perform Chameleons material around the world on extensive tours of Europe, the U.S., Australia, and the Republic of China as Chameleons Vox.
