Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Hunter. I discovered this Band while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked their vintage sound.
Are you ready for a step back in time to savor the true and sincere music of the 70s?
The songs of Hunter’s Ep Schizophrenia, thanks to Rave Up Records, are available today on vinyl.
Raw and rough music that unleashes sincerity and that awakens your rock spirit.
Listening to these songs, I took a trip into the past and imagined the guys in bell-bottoms and the topless girls smoking joints in the middle of a meadow.
Even if I have never experienced it personally in that period, there was a different ‘air of freedom’. People were more connected and emotions were less cold and more real.
Hunter’s music has all these emotions within and carries that rebellious and irreverent spirit of those years.
An energetic and vital Ep that I recommend everyone to listen to and buy.
Schizophrenia is Hunter’s Ep Out Now!
Real, Sincere, Fantastic!
Hunter were formed during the summer of ‘79 in the Isle Of Wight.
The original line up consisted of Jon Amor on vocals, Ian Hargreaves on bass/backing vocals and brothers Clive and Hugh Kim Lewis on guitar and drums, respectively. They had a different sound to the new wave music of the era, centering mainly around driving bass riffs and choppy guitar. Most of the material they played were their own songs.
They rehearsed extensively and made their live debut on 22nd December 1979 supporting the Pumphouse Gang at Lakeside Inn. Not long after Hugh departed the band to join Flirt (later Cassie) and Chris Lines took his place on drums. The new line up did more live gigs and went into Tim Muncaster’s 4 track studio in East Cowes to record some songs. A short while after the band split up.
