ABC split up in 1992, with White leaving the music business to pursue an interest in Reiki therapy. Martin Fry continued to work with EMI in the months thereafter but was axed from the label before his solo material was ever released.
Fry performed on one track of the 2001 'Re-members only' album by Sylk 130, the musical collective masterminded by DJ King Britt.
In 2005, Fry embarked on an extensive UK tour with Tony Hadley, former lead singer of popular 1980s Pop group Spandau Ballet. Highlights of the tour were released on CD and DVD compilations, both titled Tony Hadley vs. Martin Fry. The DVD is available in Europe, but has yet to be released in NTSC format.
Fry, Tony Hadley and Richard Drummie of Go West fame, together with manager John Glover, went on a trek to The Lost World in Venezuela in February 2006. The trek was a fundraiser for Action Medical Research who have funded the research into the polio vaccine, hip replacement surgery, Ultrasound scanning, the use of folic acid during pregnancy and other research. The 2006 campaign 'Touching Tiny Lives' aimed to further research into ways of preventing premature birth and the problems suffered by babies that are born prematurely. Fry, Hadley, Drummie and Glover aim to raise GBP 100,000 in sponsorship with this charity.
Fry was featured extensively in the 2006 VH1 mini-series 100 Greatest Songs of the 80's. When asked, Fry revealed that he hoped ABC's 1982 single "The Look of Love" would land a coveted slot in the Top 10. Despite his plea, the song was ranked No. 43.
Fry appeared in Most Annoying Pop Songs Ever on BBC Three in a two part series, counting down on classic pop hits that 'stormed the charts and secured their place in our hearts ... as the most annoying pop songs'.
Fry was the third Magic Mystery Voice to be identified in a competition ending on 17 November 2010.
