Martin Gilks dies

Former Wonder Stuff drummer Martin Gilks has died from internal injuries following a motorcycle accident on Sunday. He was 41.

Gilks began his music career as a member of 80’s indie band The Mighty Lemon Drops. After Wonder Stuff split in 1994 following their spate of early nineties hits such as ‘The Size Of A Cow’, Gilks moved into the management side of the industry, working with acts such as Reef and Hundred Reasons.

A spokesperson for his company, Furtive, said: “He was greatly loved by many and will be sorely missed by all his family and friends.”

He is survived by a son and a daughter.
