Martyn Goodacre grew up on punk rock, and at an early age he was lucky enough to see The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and Joy Division live. However, it would be long after these bands had hit their peak that he picked up a camera and started photographing gigs.
Soon after, he became a regular contributor for the NME which lasted over ten years. His most well-known image of Kurt Cobain (Nirvana) was taken before their seminal LP Nevermind came out when Cobain committed suicide in 1994 and became world famous. During that time Martyn would also start his own band Fabulous.
After working for other publications such as the Guardian, Loaded, and the Rolling Stone, Goodacre would go into self-imposed exile for fifteen years to live on the island Koh Samui in Southern Thailand. He now lives in Berlin and has returned to photography and playing music.
His images from the Nineties and early TwoThousands are still used regularly in publications, TV, and other formats worldwide such as the cover for the latest Beastie Boys LP Music. A shot taken in Martyn’s London black cab that he used to navigate the streets of London in the 1990s.
Stony Sugarskull (Berlin/Los Angeles) aka Dr Monika Demmler has just released her first debut album LIONESS in June 2020 (Sugarskull Records) and will present an acoustic set for this occasion via livestream with Franz Bargmann on guitar (Camera, Michael Rother/Neu!).
«Berlin-based music act Stony Sugarskull, the sonic project led by the beguiling Dr. Monika Demmler, has unleashed its inner lioness with the grainy punk-infused video for “House on Fire”, a track oozing with the kind of swagger you would find if Marianne Faithful were to push Iggy off stage and front the stooges herself.»
The event will be streamed from Soultrade Records where you can also obtain Martyn Goodacre’s photo prints and Stony Sugarskull’s white LiONESS album.
