omething Funny Happened On My Way To Utopia (self release)

This is Newcastle-based singer/songwriter Martin Thompson’s fourth album, and, as with his previous three, and due to the wonders of home-recording, he has played every note on it. And he remains as idiosyncratic as ever, writing pop songs that come out of the leftfield and addressing topics such as controversial Newcastle councillor T.

Meiosis is actually Newcastle based Martin Thompson, a talented so-and-so who certainly knows his way around a wonky tune with added Scott Walker style flavours.
