MARTIN GORDON
OMG! Can you believe it? We can't! We simply cannot believe it! You cannot be serious! It's the new album. Ooh, a al-bum, what a quaint term. Tunes included on the OMG al-bum point the finger of scorn at idiots (‘Will of the People’), excoriate the absurdly rich (‘Coming Over’)and document the process of aging (‘Wild Old Men’). So there’s nothing new there, then. Gordon bewails consumerism (‘Google World’) and here the proceedings are enlivened by bass clarinet. Clarinet? OMG!

THANKS FOR ALL THE FISH And finally, all your stupidity needs concisely assembled in one place. The album ‘Thanks For All the Fish’ features 15 new tunes, a wealth of guitars and drums, along with ukuleles, cellos, lutes, melodicas and fish. PLUS you get a real lyric sheet, and the sad Tale of Percy as a pdf. Neil Postman once said that everything is entertainment, including politics, science and reality. But blimey, who needs reality, let’s see what’s on the other channel.

GILBERT GORDON & SULLIVAN It's Gilbert, it's Gordon, and it's that bloke with the silly haircut and nae trews. Gordon revisits hugely successful comic operas created by irascible wordsmith WS Gilbert and composer Arthur Sullivan and rearranges them for the contemporary ear. Using guitars, bass and drums (plus brass, keyboards and devices) the album trawls through a raucous selection of their finest compositions, re-imagined as a cross between the Small Faces and Winifred Atwell. Rest assured that the matelot choruses survive, with selections ranging from the well-known (‘Modern Major-General’, ‘When I Was a Lad’, ‘Lord High Executioner’) to the obscure but exquisite (‘Make Way For the Wise Men’, ‘Go Away Madam’).

THE WORLD IS YOUR LOBSTER Part IV of the Mammal Trilogy. This Nobel Prize-winning former stand-in for Charles Atlas and personal friend of James Bond once again lays it fearlessly on the line. He wrestles with la condition humaine in his accustomed manner, but will never really come to terms with it. His existential angst is merely disguised as joi de vivre.

GOD'S ON HIS LUNCHBREAK Part III of the Mammal Trilogy. God dropped in to give the project His blessing. Assisted by singer Pelle Almgren from Stockholm, Chris Townson on drums and boy wonder Enrico Antico making his debut on guitar on guitar and terminal vowels, it’s service as normal for our happy-go-lucky purveyors of why-oh-why-must-we-fling-this-filth-at-our-pop-kids. Gordon touches upon foreign holidays and cargo cults who worship Queen Elizabeth’s consort Prince Phillip as a god, warns against relaxation of the thinking laws in the UK, and more.

THE JOY OF MORE HOGWASH Part II of the Mammal Trilogy. Erotic details and love-making tips for Spaniards can be found by clicking on the cover.

Included on The Joy of More Hogwash (Gordon’s proposed title for a series of real-life-TV talent-free casting shows), are 13 new compositions from the pen of the ‘smart-pop meister’ (Tangents) which deal with such topics as misogyny, idiots, Nigerian banking fraud, falling in love with aliens and falling in love with sheep. The Joy of More Hogwash is pop music, even though pop currently seems to cater exclusively for emotionally-retarded pre-teens with reading disorders and attention spans in the range of 1-10 nano-seconds.

THE BABOON IN THE BASEMENT Part I of the Mammal Trilogy is loosely based upon Jung's theory about cheeky monkeys. Or was it beavers? We all have a baboon in our basement, somewhere – you too. Featuring 13 new songs and three covers (Jagger/Richard, Roy Wood and Marc Bolan), lashings of flambe vocals and oozing extrovert guitar and drumming, it’s a paradigm of perfect pop. Buy this CD or else the baboon gets it.

RADIO STARS
SOMETHING FOR THE WEEKEND A live extravagonzo! This is a double CD release. Radio Stars ‘Something For The Weekend’ / Martin Gordon "Hello Boston!' special edition features Radio Stars live in the 70s.

MIRA
NEW HOPE FOR THE DEAD An insanely ambitious world music project. Mira performed at the Montreux Jazz Festival and then collapsed, leaving only a CD behind them. The download contains extra tracks, including a stellar version of Todd Rundgren's 'Tiny Demons' featuring Chandru on Indian violin.

  1. I’m afraid this is one of life’s imponderables. Why did she wear that bright yellow cape, dressed up a SuperBrexitWoman? We will never know. I can have a word with the Bulgarian peasant women, of course, but you know what Bulgarians are like. Strapping, hairy, covered in tattoos, they smoke like chimneys, they’re built like toilets and are extremely short-tempered. The men are even worse. But I will keep you posted.

  2. Hi. Why oh why is Pop Sensibility not available on cd? Some of us like tangible things! I’m not one for downloads. Please get the Bulgarian peasent women to press me a real, 3d cd, with a smart booklet to read. Meanwhile, my collection of MG CDs is growing. Please don’t deny the world a cd version of Pop Sensibility! Kind and hopeful regards, Mark Clayton, collector of fine music ( ie, punk and its parents, children and grandchildren. And a few cousins.
