Muskett was lucky to be around in those heady days when record companies paid for studio time, students got grants, gigs were plenty and someone had to sit on the engine.
Fast forward (remember that?) 36 years to 2010 and the same, not too rusty, Muskett ‘reloads’ at the Aspinall Arms in Clitheroe. It didn’t make the front pages but the room was full, it was great fun, so why not?
Almost time for Muskett to hit the road once more. This time we have a short (but perfectly formed) tour ahead of us including four venues that are new to the band. It's good to cover new ground alongside the old favourites.
We always look forward to meeting up again and getting in some rehearsal time. Lugging the gear is perhaps less of a hoot these days, but it's worth it when we get out there. Hope you can make it to one of the gigs
US author David French has just put the finishing touches to his new book: A Heart Full of Soul: The Life of the Yardbirds' Keith Relf.
As Keith produced our 1973 album 'Hunter Muskett' we were able to help David with a few memories from our times with Keith, both in the studio and on tour with the Bradley's Roadshow.
The book will be published in the US by McFarland Books in 2020 and will hopefully be available here too
Terry's solo CD 'Falling More Slowly' is now complete. All but two of the songs are Hiscock originals and Terry plays the instruments himself with just a little help from Tom Leary on fiddle. Noel Gander and Gayna Taylor contribute vocals and John Ellis, who did Muskett's 'That Was Then This Is Now' CD, engineered at his Limefield Studio.
We could tell you how good it is but why not read an impartial review in FATEA on-line magazine Terry Hiscock CD review?
Copies of the CD are available by contacting Terry's website or by going to one of his solo gigs also listed on the site (assuming he remembers to take them along)
It is gratifying that the new Muskett CD ‘Unafraid and Sober’ continues to receive excellent reviews. Extracts and links can be found on the ‘Our Story’ page, together with full CD details
Copies of both of our comeback CDs - ‘Unafraid and Sober’ and ‘That Was Then This Is Now’ - are available from this site and at our gigs.
Unfortunately neither of the 70s albums is officially available at the moment although we are looking at ways to finally make the Bradley’s ‘Hunter Muskett’ recording available on CD later in the year.
As always, if you would like to get in touch do feel free to use our e-mail link on the ‘Contact Us’ page.
