Who is Martin Gordon?

Martin GordonMartin 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.

Reading material:

Martin Gordon booksTwo 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.

    Hello Mr. Gordon,

    First off, I just wanted to say that I really love your Gilbert Gordon and Sullivan album. It’s the best. Wish there were more like it.
    Anyway, I was snooping around the Mole-related parts of your site and I couldn’t help but be reminded of this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJ7Xl_Z7iTA Would like to know your thoughts on it.

      Parts of the vid are very familiar, especially with the blind rummaging and plucking of unexpected Mole-related objects. And ta for the GG&S critique, most kind! We do our best, you see…

        No doubt that you do 🙂

        Also, this is totally unrelated but where can I possibly find the lyrics to Fax ‘N’ Info? I do recall that you had mentioned earlier the lyric book was well out of stock.

          On investigation, I discover that there are two copies of ‘Words In Your Shell-Like’ which were being stored for a rainy day. I daresay, what with global warming, the impending apocalypse and Dumpf, that we could do with only one copy for such an event. So over to you, Hatty… http://radiantfuture.eu/products-new/

      Hey Ron! Greetings from down the eons, and I remember our sessions well. In particular I remember your stepping in during the heated Lee Gorman kebab debate when it was all getting rather out of hand. A belated thanks for that! All well with you?

    Hi,

    I’m not posting this to be “veröffentlicht”, so you can delete it after you read it.

    I can’t reply to the reply you made to me about the lyrics, when I press the “post comment button”, it downloads some php file (or something like that) instead of posting my comment.

    Hi Martin,

    I’m from Venezuela and I’ve just discovered your music while watching a short interview (http://www.dw.com/es/alemania-nuevo-pasaporte-por-si-acaso/av-19332683?maca=spa-GK-Link-WhatsApp).

    I really like your music, and the one I liked the most is “Only one dream per person”, song that you mentioned in that interview.

    Since I’m a spansih native speaker, I understand 90% of the song, and I would like to understand the other 10%. Could you post the lyrics to this song?

    I would really appreciate it.

      Well, where were you, Mr Moletrane? In your absence, we had no choice. I thought about getting that Ron Mellotron along but to be frank, my heart wasn’t really in it. There’s no Moletrane like Showtrane, they say, and they are right, I can tell you this much.

    Hey Martin! Do you ever communicate with those naked mole rat characters? About a kind of reunion of the Kimono era Sparks band? Are there enough Eyros to entice you into such a venture?

    Hi Martin! I’ve always been a fan of Rod Stewart’s mid 70’s wardrobe, especially those “low-cut” blouses that exposed his nipples. He looked so happy prancing around the stage back then! I’ve done a little research on the originations of the style and it appears that Robert Mugabe receives credit for the popularity of this garment. He, however, affixes the blame squarely in the slender mammalian shoulders of one Martin Gordon! What a shock!

      Many happy memories of trawling round the London fleshpots in the 70s with Robert Mugabwe (known to us as ‘Robert’) and his fashion advisors. Was it not Robert (we of course knew him as ‘Robert’) who first indicated that his philosophy was to ‘have a good time all the time’?

      Well, I took your advice, Mr Escorts, but unfortunately there appear to be only ladies with no clothes on at your site. Do you not pay them enough to be clad while they are blogging? I know things are not what they used to be, but I think clothing is the least you could provide.
