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. More recently, Gilbert & Sullivan, Brexit and Donald Trump have been on the agenda. And on March 1st 2018, the next installment of the Post-Mammal Era (PME) emerged blinking into the fishy sunlight.
