Mark Richardson

Mark Richardson is the drummer of ‘Skunk Anansie’, founder and trustee of the music industry mental wellbeing charity, ‘Music Support,’ inventor of ‘Tunerfish Lug Locks’ and an academic, completing his MA in Music Industry Innovation and Enterprise at Waterbear University in Brighton.

Little Angels was the start of Mark’s professional career with non other than our very own Waterbear CEO, Bruce Dickinson in the early 1990’s. He contributed to their number 1 album ‘Jam’ and enjoyed support tours with the likes of Bryan Adams, Bon Jovi and Van Halen. However his tenure with Little Angels was short lived and he went on to play for B.L.O.W. following the split of Little Angels in 1993. In 1995 he jumped ship to join UK alternative new rockers on the block Skunk Anansie.

"This experience is life-changing. I didn't realise how much I fell into victim mode around perceived intelligence. These results are giving me a whole new level of perspective myself and how I view the world. Mind blown."
