"Dave's 'Cashology' album review 2011 - Wow!"

Wow! Where on earth have these guys been hiding out over the years??? Hailing from the Central Coast of New South Wales, Mark Cashin & The Lil Hussys have delivered one of the finest rock albums to surface in Australia in a long time. After just one listen to ‘Cashology’ you’ll be realizing that these guys really do deserve to be on a world stage.
Early on the album doesn’t promise much. There is a semi-interesting intro read by Johnny Boxer (better known as Bobo to fans of the TV Show ‘Fat Pizza’) and then comes opening track ‘Ramifications’…a track you’re not going to like unless you really like your rock with a fair dose of gruffness.
But then the magic happens. When you hear Mark Cashin’s actual singing voice on ‘Ordinary People’ you’ll wonder why the hell he ever experimented with the ‘gruffness’ anyway. He sounds amazing and as a result ‘Ordinary People’ is a great sounding rock track that is begging for radio play. Cashin then continues to genre-hop with hard rock styling’s of ‘Exloded Like A Gun’ and the punk-sound of ‘Days Of Our Lives’. Both tracks work well with the latter a must for anyone who has been/or is a nerd at school.
The magic continues with the piano driven ‘Set In Stone’ that really showcases some amazing songwriting ability, as does the slow but beautiful ballad, ‘The Sweetest Angel’. The fun, catchy ‘Hollywood’ is a hit in the making and you can expect it to hear on a radio station near you soon. If DJ’s don’t pick up this track then they are doing the rock community a major disservice.
Mark Cashin’s songwriting brilliance is once again on show with the beautiful and thought-provoking ballad ‘Good Company’ while the mix of electronic starts of ‘Push Me Away’ and ‘Your Lover’ give way to yet more great rock. ‘Cashology’ then closes with the brilliant pop-rock sound of ‘California’ and a piece of entertaining album-filler ‘The End’.
Despite a shaky beginning ‘Cashology’ becomes a brilliant rock album, an album that all rock fans must hunt down and add to their collection. This album should guarantee Mark Cashin & The Lil Hussys are noticed not only in Australia but also in the tough American market. This is rock music at its best!

"Mark Cashin - Bed of Light (Album Review)"

Mark Cashin - Bed of Light
Album Review
by MJ | 2008 Tuesday, June 24

Mark Cashin’s all-bloke rock band the casually misspelled Lil Hussy’s, share their lil title with one of his songs Lil Hussy. That’s both convenient AND confidence building. There are also tracks like Touch You Again, Trust in You, Me and You, Now U Are Gone and You, You, You, You and I. Okay, not quite the last one. I can’t take the piss out of Central Coast New South Welshman Mark Cashin. Why? Most of the time, he’s just too good. Despite the raging ego, matching red sunglasses and quite possibly sticky hair, there’s something about Mark. Maybe it’s his experience in music and life combined that when given the time of day, helps get him over the line. “Keep on goin’” he says in the liner notes, “never give in no matter what!” Fair enough, at this rate the premiership’s a fuckin’ cakewalk.
Cashin employs a wealth of serious production values on this his debut CD after some twenty years floating somewhere in the biz, followed by a car accident that he says “snapped me into thinking… do something”. I can think of far less dangerous ways to boost your career but this one seems to work for him. With pianos and strings and synths abound, some of these songs lose part of their body-moving live sound in favour of a more finger tapping, radio friendly one. This is after all a carefully manufactured product, catering to a fickle market with a short attention span. Cue underrated artist sales figures? I don’t know - this guy seems pretty motivated. Think I’ll go for a drive…

Review: Ikatulka

Mark Cashin and The Lil Hussy’s

Woke me up with their explosive rock numbers, these guys were a real surprise package. They took the stage looking like they’d just stepped off a pirate ship, but delivered surprisingly rich acoustic rock numbers in the vein of Fuel or Stone Temple Pilots. Mark Cashin is a charismatic frontman, and his supporting musicians are all top notch. All the right elements were there, and I was sorry to see their set end.

"Music Box - Mark Cashin"

Music Box

Central Coast-based musician Mark Cashin has a big year ahead.
As well as performing a run of dates along the east coast, he is planning a tour to the US, where songs off his album Bed of Light have found a place in the hearts of American listeners.
“They’ve been playing my stuff everyday,: he told LIVE
“I’ve got 30 stations who’ve taken the first song, Black and Blue, and really gone with it now they are adding some of the other songs to the playlist.”
Ahead of his L.A shows, which will see Cashin perform at The Viper Room & “the Whiskey” (Whiskey A Go Go on Sunset Strip California), he has shows planned for the Central Coast & Melbourne.
He also hoped to do some Newcastle shows in late May before heading abroad in April.
Cashin cut his teeth in the industry performing vocals in The Australian Pearl Jam Show, and bands Smashed Palace and Splurge.
But it took a brush with death to motivate him to knuckle down to write and record the long awaited Bed of Light.

“Its really gratifying that something has started to happen with my stuff, it took a long time, and unfortunately it took a head on car crash”
Cashin was returning from a gig in Coff’s Harbour about four years ago when he had the accident.
“That week I started to write the album.” “I crossed the line, man, I was ready to kiss the maker,” he laughed.
“Iits funny how in three seconds you can fit so much into what you think about – I just prepared myself to die.”
He was lucky to escape major injury, and over the following 2 ½ years, he worked to perfect Bed of Light.
“I wasn’t happy until it was perfect. Its all blood, sweat and tears this one.”
The adult contemporary rock album was proudly produced by Simon Tonx, who has worked with Midnight Oil, Noiseworks and Silverchair, as well as recording live concerts for Billy Joel, Cindi Lauper, Jeff Buckley.
Cashin recently signed to Foghorn Records and has already begun writing songs for another album.
Mark Cashin & The Lil Hussy’s perform at the Entrance Diggers tomorrow night 2nd Jan 2009 with supports Underscore & Ben Roberts Ensemble Trio from 7pm entry is free.

"Xposed Mark Cashin & the Lil Hussys Australian Musician Mag 2009"

Xposed – Australian Musician Magazine 2009 Winter Indie Edition

partial extract only

They say sometimes a significant event has to happen in life for you to finally head in the right direction, and this was certainly the case for singer songwriter Mark Cashin.

The New South Wales based musician was performing around the traps in heavy rock bands, and even took the fronting role of the Australian Pearl Jam show, before a head on car crash changed his outlook on life.
The honesty in his songs seems to appeal to audiences, and through his live performances he’s earning himself an ever increasing fan base.
“I like writing about real stuff, but giving it an abstract twist in lyrics so that I know what it means, but everyone else can relate to it and take it upon themselves and what it means.” With these ideals in mind, he is already working on his next album, a project he hopes to see through to fruition by November. Having just returned from his comprehensive tour of Melbourne and heading over to the US for some showcase gigs, he is busy organising pre-production of the as yet untitled release. Unlike ‘Bed of Light’, which he penned independently, this time Mark will bring his band The Lil Hussys into the song writing realm and work out the instrumentation with them. “ I don’t have a radio in my car, so I am constantly going through new things in my head,” he says. “If anything it is worth it, it will keep knocking on my door and eventually I will make something out of it.”

Mark Cashin & the Lil Hussys ‘Bed of Light’ album is out now.

"Mark Cashin & the Lil Hussys perform at Sydney Homeless Charity Event 2010"

To Mark Cashin & the Lil Hussys,

On behalf of Sydney Homeless Connect, the organizing team, and most
importantly from the homeless of Sydney that attended our inaugural
event, thank you, thank you, thank you!

When I first heard the song "Ordinary People" I just knew I needed to
have you involved in the event. When I heard you'd be prepared to
drive all the way to Sydney and do this for us I was thrilled. Nothing
prepared me for the outcome on the day!

It was just amazing how you guys got stuck in and really took the
event to a new level. To then add the donation of your CDs to help us
drive addition fund-raising on the day was amazing. Just this gesture
added nearly $500 more to our cause and is invaluable to us.

Lastly, I thought you guys might have played a 40 minute set and then
called it a day, but people kept remarking all day how great the band
was outside, and I now understand you played all day. What an amazing

So from the whole team, thanks. You didn't just play a few songs, you
changed a whole lot of lives!

Warm regards,

"Cashology at the house of Reverb Publisher"

Mark Cashin and a number of Lil Hussys visited the house of reverb publisher, Kevin bull, a few weeks ago with an unmastered version of his new release, Cashology, for a listening party. What started out as a couple of hours of loud music turned into much beer and champagne being drunk, the barbecue being lit, and two messy ladies that had to be tucked into bed. so what does Cashology sound like? mark has stepped back into his rock roots -- this is a slap in the face that represents his live performances far better. Catch mark Cashin and the Lil Hussys [sic] at Lizotte's, Kincumber on Wednesday, May 5, and the official album launch at the Doyalson rSL on Saturday, May 22. - Kevin Bull - Reverb Street Press

"Mark Cashin & the Lil Hussy’s Route 31 Dandenong Vic April 2009"

Mark Cashin & the Lil Hussy's Performance Review
Route 31 Dandenong Vic Aust
Friday April 24, 2009
It is certain that there are some great bands around and some incredible musical talent. Some, being the word and them some are as rare as hen’s teeth. So in saying this, I must add, Mark Cashin and his incredible band, ‘The Lil Hussy’s’ are a golden Hens tooth.
What a punchy, rip it out, exact and well rehearsed band. Watching Mark Cashin and his band on stage, I was left thinking of the other dime a dozen sticks on stage and how only a minimal few can actually perform. I’m talking about lyrical ability, musical ability and also the ability to put on a true show for the people. Genuine ambidextrous qualities both mentally and physically.
Energetic, superstar, rock god movements and amazing microphone usage compel the eye and ear to stay just where they are, fixated on the stage, just wondering what The Lil Hussy’s will do next. Did I mention Professional? Bands, please, take a leaf out of Mark Cashin’s book, this is the kind of band that other bands want to be like. 1,000 Lil hussy’s, but there is only one in the end.

It is easy to explain what makes this band so very good, but it is also hard to explain unless you have had the luxury of seeing them live. Concert status, touring status and label status. This band does not have much more they can do to get any better, except work on getting even better.

Any venue owner that would not consider Mark Cashin & the Lil Hussy’s for live performance must surely have rocks in their head. This is one act you need to book; this is one act that you need to hold dear to your heart because one day very soon they will be massive. Bands as professional as this can only head in one direction, and that is up.
A dream to work with, what amazing people offstage as well as on stage. A true dream, oh if only there were more around with such incredible persona and confidence in their presence on stage. These guys know what they are doing and exercise it down to the nth’ degree.
After all is said and done, all of the above makes perfect sense as to their trip to America, they have something to show the World, and they are going to do it well. Praise this act now because very soon there will be a trail of dust as they head in to the sunset of their future.
Guys!! You are welcome back anytime. Just say the word.
What a real pleasure.
