Plan9 Music

Towards the end of 2020, former Sparks and Radio Stars composer and bassist Martin Gordon was driven to the edge of sanity by the double whammy of COVID lockdown and the nightly TV rantings of the American President. Then came the hour-long phone con-versation in which Trump encouraged politician Brad Raffensperger to 'find' enough votes for him to retain the presidency. We all know how that one worked out. Just before the emergence of COVID, Gordon performed with the Ensemble Modern in West Africa. "Another Words" was inspired by this step into the contemporary classical world, and features voice, orchestra and loops. The work also sees the return of Gordon's trademark barracuda Rickenbacker bass, as first heard on the Sparks album "Kimono My House" and as recently not referred to in any films at all. "Another Words" features 31 separate compositions. But do not be alarmed! None of the pieces last longer than one minute and so the album is highly suitably for the limited attention spans of today's music consumers. The CD package includes all sorts of additional material including full sleeve notes and an extra track not available digitally.
