Mark Springer first began playing gigs with the experimental rock band The Pop Group, the members of which he had been schoolmates with. In 1981, Springer joined former Pop Group members, Gareth Sager and Bruce Smith, in Rip Rig + Panic. After Rip Rig + Panic disbanded in 1983, Springer began recording as a solo artist.
