This website is a private and fan-based venture. All thoughts
and opinions contained within Half Moon Bay are
purely that; the thoughts and opinions of the Half Moon
Any material copied from album sleeves, inner sleeves, free
booklets, images of album sleeves, etc. have been copied without
obtaining any necessary permission. A lot of information has
been gleaned from Pete Frames Family Trees, both
those published at the time and the subsequent sanitised version
in the excellent book later
published by Omnibus Press. In the old days I used to
get the late, lamented Sounds everyweek,
and an awful lot of stuff comes from my cuttings saved from
those days; Bill Henderson in particular always managed to
interview someone Mott-ish at a pertinent time. There is the
odd Melardy Mawker feature, Creem piece,
and so on.
It should be stressed that Half Moon Bay will
not make one sausage out of all this, and that the aims of
the magazine are to promote, if possible, the catalogue of
Mott the Hoople. Where we have remembered and are able to do
so, we have included a relevant note pointing to the origin
of the material. The best interests of Mott the Hoople and
all those connected with the band are intended at all times.
If anything is yours and upsets you or contravenes any contracts,
etc., then please get
in touch with us so that we can put it right (give
you the credit for your work, or take it out).
I hope we haven't offended or upset anyone with this venture.
As Sounds used to say, 'Music is the message'...
But if we have then send
your comments to the editorial team here at Half Moon Bay.
We try to update as often as possible, but this is spare time
thing and is done on a purely as-and-when basis. Thanks for
your time, patronage and e-mails.
