Mott the Hoople: Hoopling Furiously

Mark Williams, International Times, 10 October 1969

GUY STEVENS is a man one should learn to trust. Every musical entity, record, group, or individual performer he's ever recommended me to, has turned out to be a gas. But Mott the Hoople just didn't sound like they'd make it. I mean 'Mott the Hoople'! But there was never any pressure piled on the Sparkly cranium to see and hear the band — I happened upon them by chance whilst visiting the Stevens' abode in quest of over-due record reviews. And they were nice affable sort of chaps. I thought little more of it.
