If it's true, then that's unforgivable.

But what about the good stuff he did - the Phoenix List, organising events, record releases etc?

His Vespa P200 always had a young male mod pillion passenger, that was a big enough hint.

Re: Mark Johnson


I was at his flat once (sounds bad already don't it?) with our manager and a load of other people to arrange a gig. We'd heard the rumours but never seen any proof. Mark Johnson was sitting in an armchair talking to us while at the same time running his foot up and down this youngsters leg. He was getting nearer and nearer his crotch but the pair of them were acting as if nothing was happening. It made us shudder if I'm honest and we made our excuses to go. It was the abuse of his position that was wrong- a bloke in his 30's picking up kids in their teens who were in awe of him.

Re: Mark Johnson


the phoenix list was a godsend and prob kept the "mod" scene alive in the mid 80"s.
i got to know mark johnson through putting bands on in glos, he was the only contact i knew for getting bands, so for that i was grateful, he wasnt a mod though, didnt know about the 60"s r+b stuff or the 79 mod bands, he told me his pref was 60"s pop(?), didnt look the part either but he could be like a control freak, practically took over my first allnighter, got his crowd into dj etc ( didnt get his way with the others though). he wanted me to help him do an lp ( unsung heroes) had a falling out over that mind ( but i did get 11/12ths of my own way in the end lol) always seen him with young kids and it didnt sit well with me, so sorta advoided him at all [sign in to see URL] it was ed piller who found out about his sordid ways in the end and spread the word.
