Email from Ian Hunter:

"Hello all,

Ian Hunter and the Rant Band appeared on the BBC's "Later ... with
Jools Holland" TV show on Tuesday, performing 'Flowers' from the 'Man Overboard' album.

My understanding is that more than one song was taped for the show, and the Friday 7 May 2010 broadcast of "Later" is a longer show and will likely feature the band performing an additional song.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/later/

Sorry, I do not have any details about broadcast times, channels, or
availability outside the UK."

Good article.

Mott at Hammersmith is way up there with my best ever gigs, probably top-ten.

I can't abide any form of cruelty though and the 'kitten' incident has dropped the man himself a few notches in my estimation.

Thanks for posting it though, Fred  :)

I'll have to save it for my business partner, who is a huge Mott fan.

That'll teach me to read articles before I post links - sorry for any upset caused.

Worth sticking with it for this bit near the end:

"I was in Hull a few years ago," I tell the singer, "working on a story which involved regular visits to the main police station. If I was early, I'd sit in the park. There was this run-down shack there, always locked and bolted. At first I thought it was a public toilet, but it appeared to be a store for fertiliser and gardening equipment. It had a plaque screwed to the wall that read: 'Mick Ronson Memorial'. [An adjacent stage is the city's official tribute to the musician.] I can remember looking at this battered shed and thinking: you can work all your life, applying all that talent, and that's what you get for it..."
 
"I heard about that. The way I see it is: Mick's gone. Why should he care? He's not here any more. I mean... don't get me wrong. I've heard it's pretty bad up there."
 
"In heaven?"

"In Hull," Hunter replies.

Are you sure it says 'nailed a kitten to a door' and not 'had some pussy against the wall'?

I do wonder if it's true, but it does say a kitten was nailed to a door.

What is it with animal cruelty and "rock stars"?

Alice Cooper and chickens?

Ozzy and bats?

Sid Vicious and the cat he killed?

The Clash and shooting racing pigeons?

Not good at all.

That's true actually - but our experiments showed that it's mainly the long-haired ones he's most sensitive to. Our dog, cats, chinchillas, rabbits, gerbils and hamsters also showed no ill-effects upon exposure to TV Smith.

TV Smith - tested on animals.
