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? Or there’s the discography, with all those groups, the music, the video and the vegetables.

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. 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. The conclusion of the Mammal Era brought an album of Gilbert & Sullivan tunes, Brexit and Donald Trump, although Gordon stoutly denies any involvement in the latter. In March 2018, the first installment of the Post-Mammal Era (PME) emerged blinking into the fishy sunlight, in the shape of ‘Thanks For All the Fish‘. More recently, the second installment ‘OMG‘ followed in early 2020.

    Hey Martin,

    Do you own the Jet recordings? If so, would it be possible to license a track for a forthcoming 70s rock box set?

    Best wishes,

    John

    Martin! I’ve just received your latest newsletter advertising “Superior Jeans.” The picture of Donald Trump where he is holding up his thumb and forefinger, millimeters apart, is from a press conference where someone asked him just how long is your schnitzel. Notice the total lack of embarrassment as he, for the first time in decades, gives an honest answer.
