In his first book, The Wonder Stuff Diaries 86 – 89, Miles Hunt delves into his personal journals to give a vivid account of how a young British kid, in love with rock’n’roll, worked his way up from the beery, sweat stained clubs of the Midlands to becoming an international touring rock star in his own right.
Miles invites you to an evening celebrating the publication of his diaries, with selected readings, a handful of songs, and your chance to embrace an intimate and revealing environment to put to him the questions you’ve always wanted to, but were afraid to ask.
In recounting the joys of success and the frustrations of the music business’ predictable pitfalls, Hunt provides an unabated narrative of the impact his experiences had on his personal life.
Often hilarious and inevitably saddening, the book chronicles the first four years of The Wonder Stuff’s activities and is peppered throughout with both personal and professional photography, press cuttings and the unmistakable artwork that represented the band during these early days.
Miles Hunt was born in Birmingham in 1966. At the age of twenty, in the midst of a burgeoning British independent music scene, he formed The Wonder Stuff. The band went on to score four Top 20 albums and seventeen Top 20 singles, including the Number One hit ‘Dizzy’ with Vic Reeves. In the mid 1990’s he hosted MTV Europe’s ‘120 Minutes’ alternative music show and became one of the first DJ’s on the fledgling Xfm.
Hunt continues to perform internationally as both The Wonder Stuff and as an acoustic duo, alongside his musician and artist partner Erica Nockalls, with whom he lives in South Shropshire.
