This is really upsetting. RIP Martin.
Wasn't expecting it as the last email i got from him was on june 21st and he said he was hoping for 2 or 3 months without treatment as the growth had stopped growing due to chemo and hoped he could put some weight back on that he had lost.

We lost a good guy.

Really sad to hear that. RIP.

Didn't know him personally but have always enjoyed his (many, many) contributions to The Singles Jukebox, and am also really grateful to him for getting me into the manga Nana through a lovely piece about it on freakytrigger.

There's no doubt, Martin was a genuinely good chap.

One of my favourite ever pieces on Freaky Trigger, it's a really good way of remembering how Martin wore his great intelligence and his great insight lightly: http://freakytrigger.co.uk/ft/2004/11/everything-they-say-about-soul-is-wrong/

I didn't know Martin but I'm very sorry to all his friends for their loss. It seems like a lot of people around here loved him. :( RIP.

i didnt know Martin, but you could tell that he was a good guy, and he always had interesting shit to say about a bunch of different subjects.

What a wonderful person, I don't know what to say. I'm so glad I knew him.

Martin was one of the first ILX people I got to know when I first came here a decade ago and I always enjoyed chatting with him either here or over IM. This is a bit of a shock because I haven't been in close touch with him recently. We all lost one of the good guys today. :(

oh no, this is so sad. rip, martin.

So sad to hear this. He went out of his way to make me feel part of the wider ILX family when I felt like a total outsider, and I was always very grateful for that. RIP Martin and, yet again, a hearty 'fuck you' to cancer.

ailsa, Wednesday, 27 July 2011 19:44 (2 years ago) Permalink

Such sad news, RIP Martin. I knew he'd been ill for several months and now hugely regret not having seen him in that time. Martin was one of the first ILXers I can remember meeting in the pub, as well as one of the friendliest and most sincere. And such enthusiasm, not just for pop music, I've never known anyone read like Martin - even this month he reviewed 10 books on his Livejournal, that's kind of inspirational.

Matt DC, Wednesday, 27 July 2011 19:44 (2 years ago) Permalink

this is very sad. RIP, and my sincerest condolences to those of you who knew him well.

Awful. I remember meeting him in NY around 2005(?) and he was an incredibly nice, smart guy, and of course a great poster as well. He will be missed. RIP.

Wow. He was contributing to the Singles Jukebox as recently as yesterday. (Wish he could've gone out on a better track.) RIP.
