Martha And The Muffins ‎– Was Ezo (7″)

martha

The follow up to “Echo Beach” and with a more guitar / indie sound by Canadian band Martha And The Muffins. From November 1980 and released in the UK on Dindisc. Again Mike Howlett is on production duty. It was from their second album “Trance Dance” (which on the B-side in slightly edited version)

The line-up was; Bass – Carl Finkle, Drums – Tim Gane, Guitar – Mark Gane ,  Saxophone – Andy Hass and Keyboards / vocals – Martha Johnson and Martha Ladly (never knew there were 2 Martha’s!)

“Trance And Dance” is more New Wave with rhythm boxes and phasing synths.

  1. Oh, I knew about the two Marthas. What was news to me was seeing a photo of this lineup clearly showing that the two Gane lads were obviously identical twins!! This was a single that I managed to find about ten years ago. From their more left-field sophomore album period. The pure pop of “Echo Beach” was sort of a fluke for Martha + The Muffins. They were always m,ore of an art-rock band.
