“Striped Leopards” the new novel by Warren Scott-Morrow is now available. Against a backdrop of Oxford, Guernsey, Scotland, Europe (including the Arctic) and Suffolk – three idiosyncratic men wander through life’s rich tapestry. Although very different from one another, they are linked in ways they are not aware of. stripedRebuilt5-page001.jpegTowards the end of the story, full awareness reveals itself in unexpected circumstances. Once the truth is out will it unite or destroy them? Despite the grimness when questions are finally answered, it is a comedy – albeit with surreal elements. Evoking smiles and frowns, often in the same sentence, they make their way to their own individual (or collective) destinies. Available from Amazon as paperback or as e-book.

Martoc

Inspired initially by the Channel Islands with a soupcon of mental illness (an enduring interest), Martoc has launched eight solo singles (now collectors items) and eight 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. Recently he has started promoting his music on the internet, including a presence on www.peoplesound.com (look for the peoplesound artists and search on Nero's Acolytes) and on vitaminic, as well as maintaining his own web site www.martoc.demon.co.uk, with some RealAudio tracks.

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.
