Three Mad Martins (Epitaph)

 

Lyrics

William Martin, Renaissance Man extreme;
Jonathan Martin, bold incendiary;
John Martin, lord of epic imagery;
Three Mad Martins, with their place in history.

These were the Martins, out to conquer all;
Endeavouring to triumph with their backs against the wall:
Mad and proud and dangerous, out of sight and out of mind;
Three cheers for three mad Martins, and all their glorious kind.

(Gary Miller)

Notes

This song is part of the 'Mad Martins' project.


'Mad Martins' depicts the extraordinary lives and times of the Martin brothers, William (self-proclaimed “natural philosopher and philosophical conquerer of all nations”), Jonathan (incendiary of York Minster) and John (eminent painter, engraver, town-planner and host), who were born in the late eighteenth century in the South Tyne area of Northumberland.
