Open Door (Part II of Fulcrum)
Malton, Ontario, 1985. For the last five years John Sliz Sr. had surrendered the basement of his house on Victory Crescent to his drum playing son and his musician friends.
It was a hangout for a lot of noisy bands, including, `Marathon’ with Tim Cooper on guitar, John Sliz Jr. on drums and a revolving door of singers and bass players, much like Deep Purple in the early years. Brian Payne jammed with John and even Marathon a few times, but nothing became of it. Well, nothing happened until all three reunited in Durham Region in 2020 to jam in John’s garage. No longer a basement band, they have been promoted to a garage band and now go by the name, `Marathon 85’, to represent the year that they all met.
Marathon 85 is (in alphabetical order):
Tim Cooper: guitars
Brian Payne: vocals and bass
John Sliz: drums, piano, keyboards and backing vocals
