Mark Tucker (born October 11, 1957 in Laurel, Maryland, and who legally changed his name in 1991 to T. Storm Hunter) is a musician, and co-founder of Tetrapod Spools.

His debut album, Batstew, which is now collectible, was released in two runs, each of 100 copies. There was also one personalized edition for his girlfriend of the time, Eva Bataszew, whose title was Bataszew. The album was re-released in 1996 as a compact disc, with extra tracks that never made it onto the original LP. It comprises amongst other things recordings of Tucker's car, a 1964 Cadillac which he had nicknamed "The Bat".

After a couple of mental breakdowns, Tucker recorded his second album, In The Sack, in 1982, under the pseudonym "T. Storm Hunter" which he later adopted as his legal name. The music was largely experimental, with tracks including "Everywhere with Sally (Ride)", a pop song recorded backwards.
