He started in the early 90s with Smashmouth (which predated the hitmaking band of the same name), then made big waves mid-to-late decade with Joe Popp. The bassist/vocalist has been in countless bands, often several at once. Sparkys Nightmare had a nice run, and his current, sublimely named Weapons of Ass Destruction will tear you up and leave your ears ringing. Along the way, Martin has subbed for many a bassist, backed artists with virtually no notice, and played a pivotal role in organizing the Incidents, some of the best multi-band local bills the area has ever seen. But beyond that, hes just a damn fine human, with a quick smile, an engaging sense of self-deprecation and a genuine propensity for sharing. Hes always been a scene supporter, even in dark days. A solid musician, a great guy.
