[MTH in 1973/4]

"Fabulous band - on a good night the best in the world,
and more influential than anyone at the time dared believe..." - Pete Frame (Rock Family Trees)


Site Contents

Welcome to my website, dedicated to all things Mott The Hoople and Ian Hunter. I've tried to cover most things the casual and dedicated fan could ask for as detailed in the following list, so hopefully you'll find what you're looking for.


My archive of stuff that doesn't fit in well anywhere else, including an in-depth look at the sessions Mott The Hoople recorded for BBC radio, an Ian Hunter interview, a Mick Ralphs interview, and a tour programme from MTH's cancelled UK tour with Mick Ronson.

Books, etc

A listing of Mott The Hoople/Ian Hunter in print, including Ian's famous Diary, Campbell Devine's Mott The Hoople Biography, and the Outsider and Just A Buzz fanzines.


My comprehensive review of every major USA/UK releases, including bootlegs. The reviews are as I see them, and my honest opinion (and no, I don't praise everything in sight - some albums only get a 2 out of 5 review!)


Most Mott The Hoople/Ian Hunter songs have been transcribed, so you shouldn't have any difficulty singing along.


The latest news from the Mott The Hoople/Ian Hunter camp, including forthcoming releases and Tour archive.

Photo gallery

My gallery of high-quality live photos of Ian and Mott The Hoople No other site gives you more!


A few songs have been transcribed for guitar and some for the piano.

WWW Links

I try to maintain a comprehensive set of links to other Mott The Hoople/Ian Hunter websites. There's also a link to a free MTH/IH discussion forum.

Chat, discuss...

If you'd like to meet fellow fans to discuss anything Hunter/Mott, then there is a free discussion forum available. Details are on my WWW Links page.


I would like to thank Rory Musil, Kevin Medcalf and others whose names I've forgotten who helped me out in the early days (before I bought a scanner) by scanning a few images in for me. I would like to thank the numerous contributors to the lyrics project, who either transcribed lyrics or suggested corrections.

I would like to thank Sven Gusevik and Justin Purington for their hard work in putting together the Outsider and Just a Buzz fanzines (which I have plagiarised shamelessly), and without which my knowledge would be somewhat poorer.

And, of course, I would like to thank Ian, Buffin, Overend, Morgan, Ronno, Bender, Blue, Ralpher, Phally, Mick Bolton and Guy, without whom...

Blowing my own trumpet I know, but I have put a few words together about myself, and this site, together with my philosophy behind trying to make this site accessible to all.
