In 1998 Martin started recording some instrumental guitar songs. Bosco Bosanac, the bass player with legendary Australia group “The Atlantics” heard one of his demo tapes. One Friday afternoon Bosco called Martin. He said “you sound all right on the recordings but can you play live?” His band’s guitarist had just called in sick. Martin did the gig and must have done ok because Bosco told the other guys from The Atlantics about him – the rest is history.
