Bertie Marshall announces forthcoming Exhibit album:

Bertie Marshall AKA ‘Berlin’ was a founding member of the ‘Bromley Contingent’ an influential strain of the London punk scene alongside Siouxsie Sioux, Steven Severin & Billy Idol. He later formed the post punk band Behaviour Red (ft. members of Normil Hawaiians) before going solo in the 90’s and subsequently becoming a respected author, publishing the novel ‘Psychoboys’ in 1999 and the memoir ‘Berlin Bromley’ in 2001.

Behaviour Red released just the one single ‘Ke Ke Ke Ke Ke Ya / Offerrings’ (Dining Out Records) in 1982, the lead track picking up airplay from John Peel, ahead of the band splitting up, Marshall continued sketching out his atmospheric, gothic compositions, central to everything is his commanding voice; heartfelt, impassioned and masterfully leading you through the story.

The album which will be available on limited 180g vinyl, CD, and in digital formats collects for the first time his songs and spoken word tracks from that period of the 80s-90s.

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
