The Most are please to announce that Mark McClaran has joined us on lead guitar and vocals, Mark has a wealth of talent and knowledge and we look forward to working with him, here is a bit about Mark; Mark hails originally from North West London. Now living in Essex he has been playing since the days of mod revival . Brought up on a diet of Kinks, Who and Small Faces he searched for "bloody ages" before finally finding The Most. He plays a Telecaster teamed up with classic Marshall tubes for the authentic sound. Mark also writes his own stuff and teaches guitar.

..::NEW BASSISTJOINS THE MOST
We are pleased to announce that we Brad Marsh has joined us on bass guitar. Brad may be the youngest member of The Most, but his approach to the songs and his fantastic vocal ability is far beyond his years. Here is his blog; I am a young Mod & a song-writer that writes with a 60?s influence in my music. I have been in a fair few cover bands & originals bands over the years. A big achievement for me was gaining a ?Grade 8? in bass-playing whilst studying at ?The British Academy of New Music?. I have also played in a popular Queen tribute band for over 4 years called ?Queen B?. I absolutely love the Mod scene and my all-time favourite band, for me, has to be The Who (and that is largely to do with Entwistle?s bass-playing!). Obviously, I am very excited to be joining The Most!
