Re: Mott The Hoople [re: ziggfried]  

“Were any Mott singles written specifically as singles? Was there “pressure” to write singles? You bet there was. “Dudes” gave us the lift, but then what? A nervy nine-month period before “Honaloochie Boogie.” This little song was really important as David was no longer there so if it stiffed, there would be a chorus of “They can't do it without Bowie.” Fortunately, it was a hit, though not as big as “Dudes.” “All The Way From Memphis” was to me, an album track and I didn't want them to release it, but it became a much bigger hit. I then wrote “Roll Away the Stone” which was saved for the Hoople album as CBS knew it was a hit. That was a deliberate single. “Golden Age” also went top 20, but that was more of an album track. “Foxy Foxy” was me experimenting with the Phil Spector sound (something everybody wanted to do at the time). Single? I'm not sure if we had that in mind - probably did. “Saturday Gigs” was the end. It only got to 35 or something and that was it. In hindsight, “Saturday Gigs” should have been a huge hit. That kind of broke the camels back. Ralpher was long gone and it seemed we'd run our course. Two other trifles - I still haven't got a clue what “Honaloochie Boogie” was about; and “Roll Away The Stone” sold over three times as many singles as “Dudes.”
