about

Martoc

Inspired initially by the Channel Islands with a soupcon of mental illness (an enduring interest), Martoc has launched eight solo singles (vinyl versions are now collectors items) and eleven solo albums plus a group album - 'Albatrocity' by 'Nero's Acolytes' (billed on Radio City in Oxford in 1998). Other coverage has included John Peel playing 'Navigator through Nowhere' off the debut album 'For Alien Ears', and 'Love is Dead', a single produced by his erstwhile group 'Those Obnoxious Types', and 'Avoid the Void' from the most recent album 'Traffic is Psychomatic', played on the Oxford radio station Oxygen FM.

Internet coverage has included being record of the month for at least 6 weeks on London Unlimited with 'Army Robots' off the same album.

Martoc releases his own music, sometimes working with others (as in 'Those Obnoxious Types', and the more recent group ' Nero's Acolytes') but more often working alone with synthesizer, drum machine, guitar and hand percussion. He writes his own lyrics, with occasional cover versions.

After a series of quirky individualistic solo gigs (Guernsey, Birmingham, Northampton and Oxford) Martoc is no longer performing live, at least for the forseeable future (but temptations to break this resolve may yet be too much for him...).

Influences: Kraftwerk, Pixies, Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band, manic depression, extra terrestrial cultures.
