Rounding out the hundredth video on our Canberra Music Playlist we’ve been sent in a blast from the past by The Martins with their song TAXI:

Written by Darcy Maynard
Produced by The Martins
Recorded at a shed somewhere in Queanbeyan (or was it Chisholm?) sometime around the turn of the 21st Century.

The Martins originally consisted of Darcy Maynard, Dan Senti, Ed Senti, and Steve Coulton with Jason Maynard joining soon after. The lineup changed prior to recording, when we lost our drummer in a cloud of wood splinters and profanity. Hence it was that Ed Senti departed stage left and we welcomed Jim Morgan to the stool – cos we knew he liked us better than The RUG.

Not long after recording this tune (and others) The Martins split up never to be seen or heard from again.

Here’s the full and magnificent playlist. If you’ve got a video we’ve missed email contact@the-riotact.com .
