Mark Mulcahy is best known for his bands Miracle Legion and Polaris – the latter, a fictional group found in the world of 90’s Nickelodeon show “The Adventures of Pete & Pete.” He’s also a solo artist, and is touring behind a new album called “The Gus.” Before his October 10th concert at The Linda – WAMC’s performing arts studio in Albany – Mulcahy spoke with WAMC about songwriting, his lyrics, and coming up in New Haven, Connecticut in the 1980’s.


  Mark Mulcahy was the singer for the New Haven, Connecticut-based band Miracle Legion, active in the 1980s to mid-1990s. The band split up awhile ago but reunited last year to play some shows -- including a gig at The Linda - WAMC’s Performing Arts Studio.

 

Mark’s band Polaris was the house band for the mid-1990s Nickelodeon series The Adventures of Pete & Pete. Following the cancelation of Pete & Pete, Mulcahy found himself playing solo and releasing albums on the Mezzotint label -- the most recent of which came out in April and is entitled The Possum in the Driveway.

 

He’s assembled a band to play the album in its entirety at The Parlor Room in Northampton, MA on 6/21; Lyric Hall Theater in New Haven, CT on 6/22; and Joe’s Pub in New York City on 6/27.
