A great band and well deserving of a reissue programme.
Would anyone care to comment on the remastering Paul mentioned? Having everything on Cd and vinyl meant I passed on that box set. One wonders whether it will hold a candle to First Press Island originals. Doubtful really. Brain Capers is a stone cold killer record, courtesy of the crazed genius, Guy Stevens in tandem with a great band. It is the nearest to capturing the live juggernaut just ask Mick Jones that was the first incarnation of Mott, not that that was really possible.
This being said I still like the old Atlantic CDs, which were absolutely fine. I looked again at the Mental Train box which I had not scrutinised in terms of content. For some reason the scale of the unreleased material had escaped me. So I will not order this new wax and will stick to my Island pressings. I take it you have all the Angel Air live things too — just fantastic examples of quite possibly the best live band Britain ever produced.
The Mental Train box came yesterday and it is very nicely done with no silly brick-walling. I spent the afternoon thinking particularly of Overend, and dug out his South West footpath book to accompany the music. Many years ago I went over from Cheltenham to Hereford and spent a lovely half hour talking to him at the Dinosaw market collectables shop he ran for many years. Loved seeing his bass hanging on the wall.

This was a time when pop music really mattered; Top Of The Pops had 17 million viewers and bands like Mott were central to British culture. They were the small town heroes who never lost touch with their roots. Tonight the band are on fire, and the Mott set has been built into a show- they always loved those theatrics!
It starts off with dry ice and the band enter as mad shadows before blasting into their set without pausing for breath for the stomping intro hat trick of Rock N Roll Queen, One of the Boys, and Moon Upstairs. These are lyrics that are full of sentimentality and romance, dark humour and brilliant imagery. He was always one of the great poets of R n R and these words are tattooed into my brain telling a truth in a decade of lies. His great bruised voice in place as he hammers the chords out on the classic Maltese Cross guitar.
He croaks the lyrics in that great voice that is stained by the mighty long way down rock n roll voice and oozes charisma from behind his shades. When Hunter is on mic you know that everything is perfect in Mott world. Now 74, Hunter is an inspiration as he rocks the stage with his ever present shades and his still long curly hair. Time and time again these bands like Mott keep coming back and make it all look so damn easy- they must be nearly averaging about 70 years old but Mott defy everything tonight with a gig that underlines everything that is wonderful about rock roll.
This is a heart-warming gig in a sold out Apollo that has moments of pure swagger, heartbreak introspection, 96 decibel bludgeon raw power and the seering sensitivity of songs that were written 40 years ago, but sound more alive and perfect than they did when they were of the moment.
