Gary Marx (born Mark Frederick Pearman) is a founding member of British rock band The Sisters of Mercy and its lead-guitarist and songwriter from 1979 to 1985.
He left the band in 1985 to form Ghost Dance, which included ex-Skeletal Family vocalist Anne-Marie Hurst. They released two albums and embarked on a number of extensive tours enjoying relative success. However, record-company politics and inconsistency in personnel left the outfit reeling and they disbanded by the end of 1989.
From 1997 to 2005 he worked as a teacher at Paul McCartney's Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts. He currently is releasing material as an independent artist through his own website and has set up an archive for his previous band, Ghost Dance.
In 2003 Marx released his first solo record, Pretty black dots, in a singer-songwriter style.
In 2007 he released the Nineteen Ninety Five and Nowhere album, with material originally written by him in 1995 for The Sisters of Mercy, at the invitation of Andrew Eldritch.
