Finke, Martin


Martin Finke is a fully assimilated non-national with an Irish accent who knows the Portuguese for “go mad altogether” and the German for “schadenfreude”. He studied languages, but makes grammar mistakes in his lyrics. In Spain in 1995 Martin began to write songs about summers and winters in Clifden, where he had grown up listening to Van Morrison, My Bloody Valentine and The Wedding Present. Sometimes the songs were verse-chorus-verse, sometimes verse-verse-verse. Read more on Last.fm
Martin Finke is a fully assimilated non-national with an Irish accent who knows the Portuguese for “go mad altogether” and the German for “schadenfreude”. He studied languages, but makes grammar mistakes in his lyrics. In Spain in 1995 Martin began to write songs about summers and winters in Clifden, where he had grown up listening to Van Morrison, My Bloody Valentine and The Wedding Present. Sometimes the songs were verse-chorus-verse, sometimes verse-verse-verse. You heard Mark Eitzel, John Martyn or Will Oldham, or you heard the rumble of a disco in Letterfrack.

Connemara stayed in Martin’s songs after he left the burly west coast to rent a room in Boston. He bought a used four-track and started recording and playing shows furiously. Since his appearance on the first series of RTE’s “Other Voices” Martin has done stints in Dublin and London, and currently lives in San Francisco, where he is working on a new record, scheduled for release in the spring of 2008. It will have clicks and broken sounds and badass melodies. Read more on Last.fm.
