In 2010 Ian Hunter and The Rant Band embarked upon an UK tour, accompanied by a string quartet. The shows were recorded professionally using a 32 track mobile, and the songs are completely live with no overdubs or fixes. The finished CD was mixed and mastered by Peter Moshay (Shrunken Heads, Man Overboard and When I’m President). The track listing mixes fan favourites from the Mott era – Seadiver, Waterlow, All The Young Dudes – with songs from throughout Ian’s solo career – Irene Wilde, Michael Picasso, Wash Us Away, Flowers. Ian has decided to release these recordings himself, eschewing the traditional record company process. Both he and Trudi have been involved in every aspect of putting this CD together, from track and running order selection, through to artwork and mixing / mastering. They have crammed the maximum music possible onto a single cd, running as it does to 75 minutes. Hunterphiles who have had a sneak preview of the CD describe it as stunning … you can judge for yourselves by clicking here to visit Soundcloud to hear samples from the album.
