Martin Gordon finally decides to release records under his own name. Since he made this momentous step, he has not looked back, although he will not say why.

Excerpts of the so-called Trilogy have been performed live on a number of occasions: highlights here. Fuller video documentation is on Radiant Future’s YouTube channel.

An ever-changing variety of on- and off-stage talent supports the Mammal Trilogy and the other episodes. Chris Townson drummed on parts I-IV, but thoughtlessly died before the final two parts were completed. He was reincarnated as a bench.

Andreas Reimer, Ralf Leeman, Mario Ferraro and Stephan Bernardes play (and have played) guitars.
