Ian Hunter & The Rant Band – Dandy | New Music

Ian Hunter 21.07.2016ANDREW


Ian Hunter & The Rant Band are to release new album, Fingers Crossed, out on Friday, September 16 on Proper Records. This features the much anticipated homage to the late, great David Bowie, called “Dandy”. Of course, in Hunter’s time with band, Mott The Hoople, Bowie wrote their massive hit, “All The Young Dudes”.


“Dandy” opens with grand guitar, a touch of twin lead going on. It swings with a certain sadness, perhaps mourning the loss of a musician that helped boost his career immeasurably. That guitar lead, though, is still rather triumphant despite the underlying melancholy. The middle section lifts it elsewhere, the song then ending and fading out as classic as it began.

I've always wanted to be involved in the media since before I even left school; to write for a living.I feel most eloquent when mapping out my thoughts on paper or on a computer screen.I studied media at college for two years, and went straight into third year at university studying publishing with journalism.After a range of work experience, I did a magazine journalism course in Bournemouth, a long way away from my hometown of Aberdeen, achieving my NCTJ qualifications.Now I spend my time gladly writing about music.
