He will be cremated in a white t-shirt and jeans

The funeral of Steve Martland will take place in the East Chapel of Golders Green Crematorium at 10.30 am on May 31.

Steve’s friend and publisher, Sally Groves, tells us that she is just about to choose a white t-shirt for his final appearance – the inimitable fashion statement that Steve proclaimed throughout his musical life. There will not be another like him.

    Shocked to hear of Steve’s death. My brother Kev and I were close friends with Steve in his formative years when he was studying in Liverpool and spent many a happy time with ‘Marto’ pubbing and clubbing it around the city. Aside from his successful musical career, purely as a person his playfully camp sense of irreverent humour was offset by very serious concerns about injustice within society and the victims who suffered the consequences. Verily, one of the good guys.
