Jim is correct, there is Martin the humorist and Martin the sober scribe. I do like a bit of humor so you'd do well with "The Illegible Bachelor" for example. But why confine yourself to the printed page when you can readily obtain the two-disc Greatest Living Englishman which contains a half hour of the Guv in full standup comedy mode?
Speaking of GLE: How did Martin get its title track onto the Christian Lacroix fashion show soundtrack "Patchwork" from 2003? It's there on CD 1 right before Nina Hagen's "My Way". What a combo! Replies:
