Mark Curry (American rock musician, singer-songwriter)
Mark Curry is an American rock musician and singer-songwriter.
He formed his first band, Crystal Sphere, with "White Boy Larry," Fernando Barrios, Ricky Rutherford and Aaron "El Hefe" Abeyta, who would later join NOFX. The band was formed in the 1980s while Curry attended Sacramento City College. One of Crystal Sphere's earliest followers, "Gumdroplou" (gumdrop Lou), became their first manager, booking gigs at pubs in downtown Davis, California, and even at the Davis airport for skydivers.
In the early 1990s Crystal Sphere moved to Los Angeles, California. Although "Gumdroplou" came with them, and was roommates with El Hefe for some time, they replaced him as manager with Desi Benjamin, who began setting up showcases for the band.
In 1992 Mark Curry went solo, separating from Crystal Sphere to sign with record label Virgin Records.
Mark Curry wrote the song "Perfect Government" which appears as a cover version on NOFX's 1994 album Punk in Drublic.
