It’s the Will of the People! British People are the Best! To celebrate Britain taking back control of invisible ferries and banning foreigners, there’s a new single and a Rabid Rick Remix. Read Will’s single-issue manifesto right here, and heeeere’s Rabid Rick with all the latest bass solo news, as remixed by Wayne and Sharon O’Yobbo.
All recent other news and stuff is here, including YouTube video highights! of the recent solo auftritt, as the typical German so amusingly often says. We also now have a solo-gig video retrospective for investigation.
The new album from Martin Gordon is out! To the soundtrack of Thanks For All the Fish and narrowly avoiding rafts of rotting plastic bags and discarded reality TV stars, Percy the puffin purposely makes his way from the planet. Read all about it! See all about it! Hear all about it! Feel all about it! Get fishy with it! Read on…
Who is Martin Gordon?
Bassist, composer, producer, incredulous bystander, wilful participant, personal friend of James Bond. Thrown out of Sparks, rejected by Jet, discarded by Radio Stars, spurned by the Rolling Stones, sneered at by Primal Scream, belittled by Kylie Minogue, ignored by Blur and accused of being a fashion victim by Boy George, his career has been a complete failure. Or maybe you’d care to stop by the alternative 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. Gilbert & Sullivan, Brexit and Donald Trump have subsequently been on the agenda. In March 2018, the next instalment of the Post-Mammal Era (PME) emerged blinking into the fishy sunlight, in the shape of ‘Thanks For All the Fish‘. More recently, commentaries on Brexit and foot care have emerged blinking into the sunlight.
