Martin Carr was the songwriter behind The Boo Radleys - hitmakers of the BritPop era. Now, he's recording solo.

His debut solo album under his own name, Ye Gods! (And Little Fishes) is a delightful collection of country-tinged rock. One song, Goldrush 49 was recorded for BBC Radio Wales and can be watched here.
