Ian Hunter Visits Ohio Early To Kick Start The Non-Profit ‘Cleveland Rocks: Past, Present And Future’ Benefit Sept. 26
Ian Hunter is back “business as usual” and better than ever, returning with ‘When I’m President’ the first single from the album with the same name. Listen to the audio track (right now!!) and you’ll have to grin as Hunter along with his Rant Band tell it like it is.
‘When I’m President’ will be available in the UK on the 3rd of September and in the USA on the 4th and according to the info posted on the official website we have a lot to look forward to.
Pre-order the CD now through Propermusic.com or Amazon.co.uk. and prepare yourselves – Hunter may be stopping in your town on his tour. When he performs this new single you’re going to want to sing along, right? Let’s show Hunter that he’d have our vote for President in a heartbeat.

So, 25 years to the day after first seeing/meeting Ian Hunter, our anniversary of that epic event couldn’t of been any more perfect. A line stretched around the Beachland in Cleveland, Ohio as many folks buzzed about hoping to obtain a ticket, some lucked out, others we hear, did not.

OCTOBER’S MOTT THE HOOPLE shows were the most rapturously received reunion gigs in recent memory. Grown men wept in the aisles of the Hammersmith Apollo as the grizzled team – originals Ian Hunter, Mick Ralphs, Pete “Overend” Watts, Verden “Phally” Allen and Dale “Buffin” Griffin augmented by auxiliary drummer Martin Chambers – delivered the signature Mott cocktail of wide-eyed rocking, phlegmatic cool and sartorial eccentricity. The boogaloo dudes carried the news and, as MOJO’s Kris Needs observed, they let no-one down.
For Hunter it was the culmination, he says, of “a year of bullshit”. There are warm words for each of his Mott confreres, but he’s also irked by the Byzantine politics of the reunion, recently revisited as news leaked of a Mott reprise at July’s High Voltage festival, only for fans’ hopes to be quickly dashed. Meanwhile, the singer keeps busy, with solo shows at Edinburgh Picture House on May 1 and London’s Barbican on May 2, affording him the opportunity to play music from his overlooked 2009 album, Man Overboard.
