Martin Newell

aged 19 joined an essex glam-rock band the mighty plod as a singer and gigged in rough clubs, pubs and colleges for the next two years. in his early twenties he joined a hard rock /.prog band from ispwich called gypp and gigged in the uk as well as touring northern germany several times. in 1979, he won his first record contract and shortly afterwards his first single young jobless / sylvie in toytown was released, first on an indie label and then with liberty records. much radio 1 airplay and the record briefly charted but then sank after trouble of various sorts.
