Who is Martin Gordon?
Bassist, composer, producer, incredulous bystander, wilful participant. From his early involvement with bands like Sparks, Jet and Radio Stars, to playing the subservient underling with the Rolling Stones, Blur and Kylie; from collaborator with Sezen Aksu and the Tiger Lillies to solo artiste (his life already he should cocoa). Care to stop by the biog?
Martin Gordon’s solo career began with the release of the first part of the Mammal Trilogy ‘The Baboon in the Basement’ in 2003. Since then, he has not looked back, although he will not say why. The sixth and final part of the trilogy (‘Include Me Out’) was released in 2013. Some people say it was released on April Fool’s Day, but that’s what some people would say, isn’t it? Here’s an album overview and a view of the simultaneously-published lyric book which covers Gordon’s entire career to date. More recently, Gilbert & Sullivan and Donald Trump have been on the agenda.
