Morphine: Mark Sandman — Exponent of low rock and low life
Tom Cox, The Guardian, 13 July 1999
MARK SANDMAN, who has died aged 46 after collapsing on stage at a gig outside Rome, was the central figure in Morphine, America's premier exponents of "low rock". This term, invented by the band, referred to their low-register sounds — achieved with Mark's two-string bass and Dana Colley's baritone saxophone — and tales of low-register living.
