Who is Martin Gordon?
Martin Gordon – bassist, composer, producer. Incredulous bystander, wilful participant. The Gordon story includes: early participant in such bands as Sparks, Jet and Radio Stars; subservient underling with the Rolling Stones and Blur; shameless mimer with Aussie eye-candy Kylie, non-skiing fiddling strumpet Vanessa-Mae and tragic twin Kim Appleby; faux dance music purveyor with Boy George and S’Express; collaborator with proper artists like Sezen Aksu and the Tiger Lillies, and finally adopts the role of solo artiste. Stop by the biog to uncover more intimate detail.
Gordon’s solo releases:
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. His latest release is a collection of Gilbert & Sullivan tunes – ‘Gilbert Gordon & Sullivan‘. An anti-Trump single slipped inadvertently out in 2016, alas without effect. More info about all this and more can be found at the discography. And naturally all these hand-rubbed products are available from Radiant Future Records.
Two books have been published; an illustrated guide to God’s on His Lunchbreak featuring artwork by Chris Townson, and an elaborate overview of Gordon’s entire songwriting output to date, A Word in Your Shell-Like.
