Perfect Alibi - Guitarist


01 May 2000
Guitarist

This album should finally open people's ears to Martin's many talents. With Paul Stacey covering all the guitar and bass guitar duties, this is a real treat. His speciality is finding the perfect guitar sound for each song. A particular favourite is their version of Jimi Hendrix's Up From The Skies. He doesn't attempt a Hendrix-style burn out, he just grooves. The vocal duet with John Martyn on Man in the Station will send shivers down the most jaded spinal column. Miss Martin now seems to have taken on Dusty Springfield's mantle as top all-round British songstress.
