There is more than one band with the name "The Marksmen" 1. The Marksmen, April 1966: Lyle McLean (lead guitar), Bob Kerr (vocals), Tony Markham (drums), Danny Coutts (rhythm guitar), Neil Porter (bass) – This is the line-up that plays on the But Why/Moonshine recordings. The Marksmen were a surf band from the town of Wollongong near Sydney, not to be confused with the instrumental group from Melbourne called the Marksmen who released singles on the W & G label in the early ’60s. Original members were Neil Porter bass, Dan Coutts lead guitar, Lyle McLean guitar and Dave Kirkup on drums. Tony Markham replaced Kirkup, and needing a singer for variety in their live shows, they found first Brian Davitt and later Bobby Kerr of the Chevrons. In 1966 they released their one self-financed 45 on the Enterprise label. It’s now among the rarest of all Australian garage 45s and truly one of the best. “Moonshine” is pure tough garage, “But Why” more melancholic with its harmonies, driven by the catchy guitar riff. 2. Bluegrass-punk band formed in Preston in 2006 by Dan Jeoffroy, Chris Nicholls, David James Wilson and multiple drummers. There is clearly another Marksmen and some confusion on this page. To avoid said confusion, songs such as Candy Cain and Moonshine are not by us. Songs such as Eldon Street and Blue Touch Paper are.
