Arthur and Martha are stage names. Arthur and Martha are Adam Cresswell and Alice Hubley.
Adam was the founding member of beard-stroking folkatronica indie-band, Saloon. They played lots of gigs, made some records, shot to number 1 in John Peel’s festive chart and then fell off the side of the world. Alice was in party-girl band The Duloks, one night she jumped ship and also fell off the side of the world.
They met, picked themselves up and on the side of a European autovia somewhere were born again as Arthur and Martha. By bringing together their rag-tag collection of moogs, melodicas and an antique drum-machine, they penned the songs on this disc for you now.
‘Autovia’ is a foot to the floor 4/4 driving song; like something Tom Petty would pen were he possessed by the brain of Kraftwerk and the soul of a maladjusted robot. ‘Japanese Kiss’ is the soundtrack to a messy break-up and inevitable argument over custody of the Pet Shop Boys CD’s. ‘Squarewave to Heaven’ is the song that Led Zep would have made had Jimmy Page been influenced by Morton Subotnick rather than Muddy Waters.
