Chris George, Terry Hiscock and Doug Morter formed Hunter Muskett in 1969 whilst still at college. The band was lucky in having access to the clubs and colleges of London, including The Marquee and The Troubadour where they were finally spotted.

Within a year they were signed by Decca producer Kim Margolis and booked into the company’s West Hampstead studios alongside bassist Danny Thompson. Arranger Richard Hewson was commissioned to write orchestral parts for a number of the songs.

In 2010, following the Cherry Red re-release of ‘Every Time You Move’ the four Musketteers decided to meet up again for the first time in 30-odd years and a ‘one-off’ performance was arranged at The Aspinall Arms near Clitheroe. This has led to new dates, new songs and another album.

That Was Then, This Is Now (Limefield, 2013) The new CD was made at Limefield Studio, Manchester, with John Ellis and Bill Leader (who almost recorded Muskett 40 years earlier) helped along by the likes of Paul Burgess, Jerry Donahue and Ray Jackson. Ten of the eleven songs were band originals.
