We will be playing Christian Leding's GEISTERFEST ("ghost festival") at Sternberg castle near Bielefeld in Germany on 22/12/18. Candles, ghosts, knights in shining armour, the castle's ancient chapel and acoustic music all night - and all of that so close to Christmas. Can it get any better? Yes - we'll be sharing the stage with four beautiful singer/songwriters: Joanna Gemma Auguri (Berlin) Brigitte Handley (Cologne/Sydney) Leding (Detmold) Elktooth (Bielefeld) Information on times, tickets, pre-sale and accommodation coming soon.

You have arrived.
Hello Music Lovers! We are happy to announce Noctorum's fourth album THE AFTERLIFE to be released in November 2018. The album will be available on CD and gatefold vinyl. ♥ PRE-ORDER NOW ♥ Everyone knows that making and selling a record these days creates some interesting challenges, but as I look around the In Deep Music Archive, I see just how many records were made despite all the difficulties of their eras. With the advances in technology putting a studio in everyone's computer, music has actually become easier to make and share with the public and interestingly this … [Read More...]
This week we have a new idea for a regular spot on my website, SONG OF THE WEEK! You will find it at the end of the front page, click here. I seem to have a lot of back catalogue between solo albums, Noctorum, MOAT, collaborations and even bands I have been in. So it seemed like a good idea to slowly let the songs out one by one, some of which you will know, some of which you won't. Ironically, old songs will be your new songs and as I have a new Noctorum album coming out in November, a new MOAT album on the cards for next year, plus hopefully some Anekdoten recording, as well as potential … [Read More...]
Songwriting & Guitar Guidance
I like working directly with those of you that are interested in learning more about my approach to music and playing the guitar. Learn more about my Songwriting & Guitar Guidance, sign up for a free introductory session by sending me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit the shop at the In Deep Music Archive website to book a session.
This is my stolen 1965 Rickenbacker 12-string, serial number EB157. If there's any chance of this guitar coming back to me before I go to meet my maker, then that would be wonderful. Please contact me if you have any information.
Song Of The Week
Watch this space for your weekly dose of Marty's music, including side projects and surprising collaborations.Dare and I always refer to High As A Kite as the hit that would have been a hit if contemporary hits were like hits used to be. The song appears on the first Noctorum album Sparks Lane, released in 2003. The whole album was written in a week with all my contributions of guitar, bass, lead vocals and anything else miraculously recorded in that time. Dare continued to work on the album after I had gone, but essentially the record was conceptualized (in its eclecticism) in a very short time - the only rule being no rules. Of course Dare later realized the project with additional overdubs and an excellent mix. The cover art was put together using techniques that blended disparate images. The scientific apparatus in the photo is an orrery - a working model of the solar system. Enjoy this slice of perfect Pop when a song like this might have dominated the charts.
