A question that has always been something in the back of my mind regarding 
the Oils songwriting credits.

On the earlier albums, Martin has quite a number of co-songwriting credits. 
On the recent albums, it basically is Jim, Rob and Peter doing the writing. 
Does anybody out there know why Martin pretty much stopped writing songs? 
Did he just lose inspiration/desire, or did the band decide to go in a 
particular direction with its sound and songwriting?

Just wondering....
