Mott the Hoople occupies a unique place in the annals of international rock music. Oozing style, attitude and unpredictability, the band recorded a peerless legacy of songs combining homage, honesty and killer hooks. As Mott's focal point, lead singer Ian Hunter was also one of the toughest and most inventive writers of the early Seventies.
 
Over the years, Mott the Hoople have been cited as an inspiration by Queen, The Clash, Kiss, Primal Scream, Mötley Crüe, Cheap Trick and Def Leppard, whose frontman Joe Elliott remains a devoted fan.
The band are also releasing Live at Hammersmith 1973 via Madfish, which features their legendary riotous set as a double LP with six tracks appearing on vinyl for the first time.
