playlisted BANDCAMP WEEKLY 14th Jan 2015


TONY MCPHEE is one of the most influential guitarists to have emerged from the 1960s blues explosion. He founded THE GROUNDHOGS in 1963 who quickly became the backing band of choice for UK tours by JOHN LEE HOOKER, JACK DUPREE, JIMMY REED & HOWLING WOLF. He also toured with THE ROLLING STONES and made several appearances on TOP OF THE POPS & THE OLD GREY WHISTLE TEST in the 1970's.

"an ultra-hip, utopian musical force...recording alongside Can, Hawkwind & Amon Duul 2 for the Liberty label...frantic, unresolved, post-blues played at breakneck speed with a hard, non-hippy idealism & drums sounding like the god Thor using a gasworks as tom-toms" JULIAN COPE

In 1973 Tony released a solo LP - The Two Sides of Tony (T.S.) McPhee featuring a collection of personal blues songs. However, side two of the album presented something entirely different - a single track, 19 minutes long with no guitars, two newly purchased ARP2600 synthesizers, organ and a Bentley Rhythm Ace drum machine.

THE HUNT is breathtakingly original - a stark, almost medieval, distorted slab of industrial electronics that precedes acts such as Throbbing Gristle, Suicide & Cabaret Voltaire by years. Tony also provides a vitriolic, anti-fox hunting, anti-establishment vocal giving the finger to the landed gentry.

We're thrilled to present an edited version of the original 19 minute track, on limited edition 7" vinyl + download, tastefully condensed by radiophonic folkies REVBJELDE who also provide a screaming electro-waltz remix on the flipside.
