GLOBAL BEATS PRESENT: AN INTIMATE EVENING WITH MILES HUNT (THE WONDER STUFF)
The Wonder Stuff’s Miles Hunt embarks on a solo acoustic tour of the UK in October this year under the guise of The Custodian. With a back catalogue of over two hundred self-penned songs to choose from, written over the last four decades, the idea of becoming The Custodian came from a conversation with one of Mile’s musical heroes, Tom Robinson after he guested on his solo show.
‘Tom was quick to correct me pointing out that all of my songs now belonged to my audience. Going on to explain that the songs I have written have been part of the sound track to thousands of people’s live and it is those people that now truly own them. He said that my position was now of The Custodian, the person whose job it is to see that the songs are treated and performed with the respect the audiences deserve.’
With this in mind Hunt has rehearsed over sixty of his best loved compositions to perform in chronological order on his upcoming UK tour.
‘There are a couple of songs from the back catalogue that I just couldn’t bring myself to sing again. Either a lazy or nonsense lyric, or just a rotten set of chords. When you’ve been at it as long as I have I don’t think anyone could expect a 100% strike rate. But really there are only two or three songs I would prefer not to revisit’
As well as performing songs Hunt will also be reading a handful of excerpts from his three acclaimed books, The Wonder Stuff Diaries.
