Mark Wilson (musician)
|Born||1980 (age 33–34)|
|Origin||Geelong, Victoria, Australia|
|Instruments||Bass, piano, harmonica, backing vocals|
He was asked to join the group in 2002 by the other three members, Nic Cester, Chris Cester and Cameron Muncey, but initially refused perhaps out of loyalty to The Ca$inos since he was that band's original bassist. Later he rang up Muncey and the Cesters and agreed to join them instead.
Wilson usually plays a vintage Fender Precision in either sunburst or white. He plays with a pick.
Wilson also plays piano (Look what you've done; Seventeen; She holds a Grudge...), percussion, samples, synthesizer and harmonica for the band. He sings some backing vocals (Rollover DJ; Beat On Repeat, Times Like This...)
He co-wrote 'Start The Show' with Guitarist Cameron Muncey.
On 24 October 2007 JET's drummer Chris Cester and Mark Wilson produced a song, under the name "The Vice Lords" for the Japanese former duo Superfly titled "I Spy I Spy". Mark and Chris wrote the music and the lyrics and were both featured in the Video, playing their instruments.
As a teen, Wilson rode to the You Yangs with his friend John.
Wilson is also well known in Brunswick for his impersonation of Stephen Hawking.
