“Sophisto Punk” you say Mr Opitz? A phrase born out from the early days recording The Angels at Alberts. More than just a pun or fancy combining of nouns and adjectives. It represented a sound, a mood and a standard that artists working with Mark would embrace.
It’s his musical DNA that would elicit such great relationships with bands like INXS, Cold Chisel, The Models and AC/DC to name but a few. If Ted Albert and Vanda & Young were The Godfather’s of an emerging Australian music scene, Mark Opitz was proof of their legacy. #inxs #inxsmus
