Biography

There are several artists using this name.

1) Mars are one of the pioneers of the No Wave Movement. They formed in 1975, originally called China, with Sumner Crane, Constance ‘China’ Burg & Nancy Arlen. The band appeared on the New York noise radar in 1977 and became one of the regular acts at CBGB where they played with leading No Wave bands on the scene. Mars is best known as the band on Brian Eno’s “No New York” compilation that had no intensive musical background but presented songs that made a staggering impact on the devolution of punk into primordial noise.

Before the band dissolved in 1978, they managed to record material for an EP, a self-titled affair, posthumously released in 1980. Their EP, along with an early 7” and live tracks, were released as a compilation 78+ on Widowspeak in 1986. Atavistic re-released the compilation in 1996, and Mars’ bassist Mark Cunningham released The Complete Studio Recordings in his own label Spooky Sound in 2003.

2) Mars (Born Mario Delgado in 1980) is an American rapper from the San Francisco Bay Area.
In 2005, he received national attention when fan Jeff Weise frequented Mars’ website and forum before killing nine people.
In 2009, Mars received attention when it was learned that Mars’ music was an influence on the music of horrorcore fan Richard Sam McCroskey, who allegedly killed four people. McCroskey’s MySpace page listed Mars as his favorite rapper, and Mars told law enforcement he had seen and signed autographs for McCroskey at various events before the murders.From these events, he has been interviewed by several TV news outlets around the United States including CBS News, Fox News, ABC News, and CNN.
