You could be, the most [dangerous song] in the world - pt. 2

It didn't take long for everyone to track down the name of the "artist" responsible for "Diary of an Unborn Child" and the link to a streaming copy. There's really no sense in keeping everything a secret. The stage name of the mind behind the song is Lil' Markie. To get a look at the uber-creepy cover of his first volume of songs, click here. If you're really feeling brave, click on the mp3 link. If you don't what this is all about, you should probably read the disclaimers attached to the original post before you click on anything.

The link belongs to Show and Tell Music, a kick-ass site offering an extensive look at kooky, hard-to-find LPs. Here's my favorite.

Meanwhile, not much is known about Lil' Markie. His albums are out of print and impossible to find (that's probably for the best). Apparently, he's the alter-ego of Mark Fox, a devoted Christian responsible for at least ten albums chock full of morbid tunes designed to, all together now, literally scare the hell out of us. Mark's act was part of a traveling kids that churches would hire to entertain and inform rugrats with songs and ventriloquist acts. Fox's heyday was in the '70s and, sometime later, he retired in Gladstone.

Yippie, Oregon can add another jewel to its crown.

This site provided the most information and even a picture of the man himself. A few years back, Fox released a new batch of material on CD. His latest is called "It's a Whole New World." There's also a Lil' Markie Christmas album out there. Just imagine the sort of songs on that one.

There is also this.

Is there anyone here that isn't offended? Have I covered everybody?
