Starlite Storage

by Marble

Truely, no two songs sound the same. Everything from straight-ahead classic rock to Zappa inspired strangenness; many times all within the same song.

Album Notes
Marble was formed in 1996 in Sunnyvale, CA. It's members include Roger Lyness, guitar, keyboards, Howard Padgett, bass, Erik Rosvold( of Zero Hour fame) vocals and Jeff Lackey drums. Before joining Marble Howard and Jeff played in Opus Wake, a progressive rock band along the lines of Marillion and The Fix. They had showcased in Los Angeles and opened locally for such touring acts as Kansas and The Dixie Dreggs. At the same time, Erik Rosvold was doing much the same; singing and playing bass in the progressive rock band Secular Trend. Roger Lyness spent most of his musical years gigging in cover bands in the Chicago area. Roger met Howard and Jeff at an Opus Wake gig and soon started getting together to jam on a regular basis. The intent was to create a "back to basics" style spurned by both the lack of artistic freedom and the growing tensions within Opus Wake.

They soon put up an ad at a local music store for a singer that included a list of influences ranging from Frank Zappa, King Crimson, Jethro Tull, Michael Schenker to Yes. Erik, seeing the ad and its list of diverse influences, decided to audition. After a couple weeks of writing and working together it became apparent that they should form a band. Six years later the result was the sixty-one plus minute CD "Startlite Storage" named for the bands rehearsal space. The eclectic mix of tunes can often cover Zappa, The Beatles, Black Sabbath and all points in between all within a three to four minute time frame. Their philosophy on songwriting is craftsmanship along with the "less is more" approach. Moreover, if a song "works" with just one chord than that's all it needs.

Although Marble has had many gigs in the Bay Area their focus was always to record. Now with that behind them they seek to gig and utilize any other means possible to promote their music.

Marble, a bit strange, but fun..........
By no means is this your normal run of the mill hard rockin' band. Marble take an approach to metal that is at times melodic, and almost always psychotic. A cross between Rainbow and Frank Zappa would fit the style of Marble best. Formed in 1996, This Sunnyvale, California quartet show they know not to take themselves or the music industry too seriously. A fun jaunt into the abnormal and melodic metal scene that is both tongue in cheek and at times straight forward rock and roll.
