'Like a DIY Frank Zappa, Mark Buckeridge is a standalone talent when it comes to writing music and creating listenable to chaos, it's warm, frightening and invigorating all at once, cherish him'

"Moving from the manic persistent rhythmic nature of tracks such as ‘Swimming at the Sea’ to the screeching textures of ‘O That Noise’ the sheer abandon in Mark Buckeridge’s approach must be respected for the courage of its conviction. Imbued with a tense mood and constantly evolving sound Talking Is Good For You flickers from one sonic tone to another in the blink of an eye, moving from up-close aggressive elements to echoing ambience that hiss with ambiguous intent"

“If Cork singer-songwriter Mark Buckeridge evokes any other artist,it has to be perpetual musical kook Daniel Johnston,a man who has little or no time for complicated song structures and glossy production.Like Johnston,Buckeridge has found a better way to express himself.Accompanied only by the light tapping of bongos and some horror flick-style theremin(or sampled equivalent).Buckeridge announces in an impassioned,pitchy croon,’Mama told me to ground myself’,and,thanks to hear trenching delivery,it couldn’t sound any better if he was backed by the London Symphony Orchestra “

“I am continuing the music I have been avoiding tour with this glorious and gorgeous gem from Irish folkish singer songwriter Mark Buckeridge. Ground Yourself is a deliciously dark bit of lofi folk music that feels like November in all the right ways. Moody guitars and synth lay a sweet foundation for Mark Buckeridge‘s brilliantly aching voice. The video, well I have no idea what the fuck the video is about and I don’t really care, because the song is Sweet Tits McGee bro”.

"At Cork Institute of Technology’s Crawford College of Art and Design, Mark Buckeridge’s tremendous performance piece is a rich musical meditation on suicidal thoughts. Historically, many musicians have art-school backgrounds, and one can see Buckeridge heading that way, but at the same time he likes the license that the fine-art context allows, mingling composition, performance, audience involvement and theatrical spectacle without being pinned down as any one thing"
