Muskett in WH Smith’s?

Swedish writer Michael Bjorn contributes to Shindig magazine. A fan of 1970’s music he has recently contacted us with a view to writing an article about the band back in the Bradley’s days. The interviews are over and the article is in preparation It will appear in Shindig issue #133, scheduled to hit the shelves sometime in the autumn. Watch this space.

New Forest and Denmark

An excellent weekend at The New Forest Folk Festival.

As always perfect sound from Paul Smith, some great acts, a bumper crowd and sunshine. Huge congratulations to Keith & Nick Curtis on their first 10 years, it was a pleasure to be there.

Very apt that Muskett played before Ralph McTell – a mere 49 years after we last did so. He was in fine form.
Back from the tent in time to pack a case for Denmark. It proved a productive week on the island of Fune with three excellent gigs and time to work on new material in Doug’s studio.
Many thanks to Doug, Jan and Jens for first-rate hospitality.

Home again to the heat, a trip up the M6 to Manchester and three solid days of recording in Limefield studio with John Ellis and Will Falkiner. It was great to meet up with John Howarth of The Oldham Tinkers again - another act we played with 49 years ago. A new Muskett CD, who knows?

Have a good summer everyone!

The French Connection
Bradley’s CD to coincide with Keith Relf Biography

A Heart Full of Soul: The Life of the Yardbird’s Keith Relf written by US author David French and published by McFarland Books is now available in the UK.  This is the first full biography of the singer and harmonica player.

As Keith produced our 1973 album ‘Hunter Muskett’ David asked us to help him with a few memories from those times, both in the studio and later on tour with the Bradley’s Roadshow. Sadly we were unable to provide a photo of us with Keith (as far as we know none were taken), but David has kindly included the album sleeve in his book.

Many thanks to Yardbird expert Josh Cicek who also helped with the book. Josh contacted us from Australia with some Muskett tracks copied from Keith’s personal tapes – including an alternative version of Laze Around All Day.

To coincide with the book we are, for the first time, making a CD of the ‘Hunter Muskett’ album available. It can be purchased from this site in the usual way, using the links opposite.  The CD features:

  • Digitally enhanced sound
  • Sleeve based on the original artwork, redesigned by Alex Szyszkowski
  • The nine original tracks plus the single version of ‘John Blair’ as an extra
  • 4 page booklet with information about the session

Many thanks to Disc Wizards who printed and manufactured the whole package for us

Leave It With Mine – Archie Fisher

After performing Terry’s song ‘Leave It With Mine’ at the Edinburgh Fringe, Archie Fisher has now released a live version. It appears on the CD ‘The Best Times After All’ recorded in Canada by Archie along with Garnett Rogers. There is also a projected studio version in the pipeline. This is in keeping with Archie’s habit of recording Terry’s songs twice – he recorded two versions of ‘Silver Coin’ some years ago.

Terry's solo CD

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).

Still Unafraid and Sober

Copies of our comeback CDs – ‘Unafraid and Sober’ and ‘That Was Then This Is Now’ are still available from this site, along with our second 70’s album ‘Hunter Muskett’.
The band’s debut album ‘Every Time You Move’ remains, for the moment, unavailable.

As always, if you would like to get in touch do feel free to use our e-mail link on the ‘Contact Us’ page

Best Wishes
