Mott the Hoople '74
"Mott the Who?" ... "What the Hoople?" ... "Mouser Hoop..." ... ah, Mott the Hoople ... a band that would sculpt a history as sensational as its moniker. Oozing style, attitude and wild unpredictability, they believed they could ... they almost didn't ... but they did! In the Seventies, there were rock 'n' roll bands and there was Mott the Hoople. Adored by a cult following, Mott was different as their focal point, Ian Hunter, oozed image and was a creative force. Hunter combined homage, honesty and killer hooks in many incredible songs, was one of the most inventive and incendiary writers of the Seventies and captured the attention of countless bands and singers. 'If it hadn't been for Mott, there would be no us' ... Mick Jones, The Clash Mott the Hoople recorded four albums at Island Records - Mott the Hoople, Mad Shadows, Wildlife, and Brain Capers ... the latter a record that would give credence to the "Godfather of Punk" and "Precursors-of-punk" claims subsequently leveled at Ian and the band.
