In his own words:
Started around 1972 when I was 19 or 20. Around 1976 or so I formed a band
with Paul Dugan, Chris Larkin, Hank Ransom, Alan James. We just operated under
my name for about a year. Went up to New York for a while to do more
solo shows. Came back to Philly in — maybe — 1979.
Formed another band with Bob Bell, Chris Larkin, Paul Dugan, Neil Simpkins;
this also operated under my name: Marty Watt. Sort of a bitches brew of Miles
Davis plays dub reggae shout and screamfest arrangement. Lasted about a year;
ending in all sorts of typical rock world apocalyptics. We were in New York at
the time making a record with Carl Peterson (of Steel Pulse) producing. Think
the masters remain under lock and key somewhere awaiting some hilariously large
some of money.
Starred in some movie, "Almost You," did some solo poet shows in Europe.
Lived for five years in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Now married up here
in Westchester County, N.Y.
