Jim Hunter was born in Edinburgh Scotland New Years Day 1956. His first musical excursion started at the age of seven when I started at The College of Piping, learning the bagpipes. A passion that lasted for five years and culminating in playing the roleof the boy Macrimmon with the silver chanter on the television for the BBC. At the age of twelve a mixture of hormones and Fender Stratocasters lured him to the guitar. With an increasingly expanding taste in music, the Bert Weedon Play In A Day manual was soon left behind and the delights of the late sixties / early seventies music scene beckoned. Bands like Little Feat, The Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd were being played everywhere; it was the era of the guitar hero and the old black bluesmen were finding a young, predominately white audience, increasingly curious to trace the roots of where the music came from. Playing along to records was the main occupation of the boy hunter until a chance to become guitarist in the established Edinburgh rock band "Snake" came along. A bizarre but educational year playing in fluorescent flares ensued. MPH Is the latest Jim Hunter incarnation - a three piece born out of the Lochailhort backwaters. Joining Jim on Guitar and vocals are stalwarts Jim Michie and Chris Pritchard with bedtrack support from long serving band memnbers Graham Flett and Jamie Ash on Bass and Drums respectively.
