Mark (Stew) Stewarts finely observed song-writing from the stranger quarter of town, is blessed with intelligence, wit and ear for a classic melody, making it a guaranteed anathema to indie-kids everywhere (amen to that!). Undoubtedly the most eclectic genius to have turned up on Fire since the hey-day of Jarvis Cocker, so let's hope it doesn't take the media a decade to acclaim this genius too. Big, Black and Soulful, Stew is a Jimmy Webb for the New Millenium, who knows just why they ate cake in 'MacArthur Park'. Do you?
"one of the first (and maybe finest) singer/songwriter masterpieces of the 21st century"
