Biography Citation Needed[edit]

The Biography paragraph - with the exception of the bit about his nick - needs citing. --Randy

What?[edit]

"Not much is publicly known about Flood's personal life [citation needed], although he was born in Manchester UK in 1960." why is there a need to cite something that cannot be verified? It is kind of difficult to conduct a search for nothing.

Need cite[edit]

What was the fact tag on the following statement removed? "[Mark Ellis is] known for his cutting-edge electronic sound, which seamlessly blends synthetic and organic elements." This probably actually be reworded to say who regards him as such or removed. --Nonpareility 04:09, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

Apologies for removing it. It merely seems self-evident, like saying "Rothko is known for big rectangles of color" or "Bach is known for counterpoint." Flood produced Violator and Pretty Hate Machine; he introduced electronics to the Smashing Pumpkins' and U2's palettes. It is really not a disputed point, and anyone who knows who he is understands this. I mean, if you really want a citation, I'm sure it can be found, but it's silly to cite "the sky is blue." Amber388 14:19, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

Your Bach and Rothko examples are self-evident, and further any reference in other parts of their articles would likely mention them. This situation is different in that
  1. Flood is no Bach or Rothko
  2. I'm specifically disputing the words "cutting-edge" and "seamlessly", which describe how great (somebody thinks) he is, rather than the simple fact that he's a record producer.--Nonpareility 14:49, 13 October 2006 (UTC)
Edited to NPOV intro; fixed a few other misc. things. Amber388 15:05, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

seems this article wrongly says "From 1978-79 he was also the bassist for the Mod revival band The Lambrettas." as per http://www.discogs.com/help/forums/topic/272145#2959652 & http://punkmodpop.free.fr/lambrettasview.htm

"Flood is no Bach or Rothko."

Correct. Because Bach was boring and Rothko was a hack. So yeah, Flood is neither of those two guys. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.198.150.71 (talk) 17:09, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

Record/Music Producer?[edit]

Just a nitpick, but...shouldn't it be Mark Ellis (music producer)? The medium that music is on is continually changing (from records, to CDs, and now mp3s), so music producer would be more accurate and inclusive. Bennie Noakes 03:58, 15 December 2006 (UTC) a record is a shortend form of recordings, which are present in mp3s —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.216.57.205 (talk) 20:14, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

Mark Ellis (record producer)Flood (producer) — Commonly goes by the nickname "Flood"—not by his birth name. Article should be moved as per WP:NCP#Nick names, pen names, stage names, cognomens. "Producer" is a specific enough attribution, and "record producer" is unnecessary. —Dream out loud 00:53, 24 May 2007 (UTC)

The names of articles in the relevant categories aren't standardized. Some have "(producer)", some have "(music producer)", some have "(record producer)". It seems as though the name should be changed to some variation of "Flood", however. Dekimasuよ! 06:46, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

Given that the titles are not standardised, I concur with Dream out loud that the simplest disambiguator is preferable. This article has been renamed from Mark Ellis (record producer) to Flood (producer) as the result of a move request. --Stemonitis 08:30, 29 May 2007 (UTC) I removed a paragraph for pseudonnym section because it said he was a "gentleman, and was not a quote. The paragraph also lacked sources. The rest of the section eeds to be looked at also. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.216.57.205 (talk) 01:48, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Grammy winner[edit]

Flood is listed in the "Grammy award winners" category. Someone should mention his award(s) in the article. I'd do it but I don't know what he's won! 70.189.71.32 05:08, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

Sigur Rós[edit]

The comment about Flood working together with Sigur Rós needs to be updated. Sigur Rós' myspace page speaks of them coming together in New York, I believe this month. —Preceding unsigned comment added by JurgenBM (talkcontribs) 23:42, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

External Links[edit]

Both external links appear to be broken currently. Should they be removed? --Hendrikxix (talk) 20:06, 6 September 2009 (UTC)

Pseudonym section[edit]

What makes these the three worth mentioning? Only one is truly specific, and none of them are mutually exclusive. In-fact they all seem to confirm one another. Tea made, Tea spilt, Tea Smithed. So what we basically have is that Robert Smith dubbed him, and all other sources didn't think ol' blaise-named Smith was notable enough that he named Flood for tea but that he was named due to tea was. 67.171.248.22 (talk) 09:17, 9 September 2010 (UTC)
