The Mighty Boss Cats TERRY HISCOCK Terry began his career with The Aztecs playing lead, rhythm guitar, bass and spoons. He was 8 at the time. It was later at university that he joined the folk-rock band Hunter Muskett and spent three years or so on the road in England and Europe. The group released three albums, one recorded live at the old Marquee Club in Wardour Street, and also completed a successful concert hall tour supporting Ralph McTell in 1974. Eventually going their separate ways, Terry returned to teaching and thought no more about live performances. Until, that is, he met Richard at Bewick’s, began writing songs again and bought a new set of spoons. The rest is legend …… RICHARD TOWNEND Richard started playing semi-professionally when his band was runners up in the National TSB rock competition. He studied music at Leeds College of Music, whilst playing for diverse people as Alan Ayckbourn (the play wright) and Ronnie Corbett on tour! He backed Tony Christie, Dana and various other variety stars including a short tour with Charlie Drake!! He ceased been professional in the late 80's and settled to performing with his own band Lloyd George Knew my Father, who had tremendous success in their street and that’s about it. He also organsied 3 London venues for new bands. Following this he played with a Police tribute band called the Fraud Squad. He hung his guitar up when he moved to Essex, but inspired by the live music in and around his hometown, he went on to form the Boss Cats, which morphed into the Mighty Boss Cats. FLUFF Considering he’s been gigging since he was 15, in bands playing diverse styles including death metal/funk/rock covers/indie prog/blues and usually in several bands at once, it’s fair to say Dan likes a challenge; trying to play what’s best for the song, rather than for himself. Since joining the ’cats he’s rediscovered the blues having lost it after too many jam nights in the mid 90’s. On the side activities includesound engineering, sarcasm and eating. GEOFF CONWAY After more than three decades of bass playing, covering styles from dub, ska and funk through indie to punk and metal, Geoff Conway aspires to achieve competency some time soon. Left handed, he plays 5 string, fretless and acoustic as well as an upright stick bass named Karen, after Karen Carpenter ("It sounds wonderful, but is a mite too thin.."). Geoff seldom names artists he has worked with forfear of sounding dated. "Being old is rather better than the alternative", he claims.
