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?

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. Then came an album of Gilbert & Sullivan tunes, Brexit and Donald Trump. In March 2018, the next installment 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.

    The world needs more Jeff Beck and less Dudek. It would be jolly well groovy if you would tour the USA thus year!

      You do know that I am not Jeff Beck, don’t you? Having said that, it jolly well would, wouldn’t it? Just as soon as someone asks me, you’ll be the first to know!

      However, there will be a spot of activity in the coming weeks, so keep your wick primed. And, if you have any blue touchpaper, be sure to light it and stand well back.

    What was it like being a super rich drug dealer? And can you describe in detail what it was like when your dad sold all of the crack (that was meant for you) to some Indian guy who payed in cockroaches?

      Nice one, George. I believe that actually two is the smallest possible number for a cult… maybe I can join? I do know quite a few cults, frankly speaking.

          Don’t you believe it, matey. Without narcissism, the wheels of industry would grind to a halt in short order.

    Apples, of all forms, cause me to suffer extremely painful and unsightly growths on delicate parts of my person.

      I too suffer from extremely painful and unsightly growths on delicate parts of my person. Perhaps we are related?

    Thank you for sharing these types of wonderful articles. A medical emergency can soon become extremely expensive and that’s bound to quickly place a financial burden on the family’s finances. Putting in place the suitable travel insurance bundle prior to leaving is well worth the time and effort. Thank you!

      Oh, not at all, Pandora, thank YOU. I wholeheartedly recommend all travellers to take a copy of a copy of ‘Thinking Inside the Box’ with them, just to be sure.
