Miles Hunt's career is mostly associated with his band Wonder Stuff. Originally formed in 1986, the band split in 1994, but since reforming in 2000 they have continued to tour. Like his customary glass of red wine during shows Hunt has got better with age.
As witty and acerbic a songwriter that you could ever meet, his debut band’s album The Eight Legged Groove Machine kicked off the Stourbridge scene that saw Pop Will Eat Itself and Ned's Atomic Dustbin hit the headlines in the late 80's and early 90's. In 1994 Hunt joined the short-lived Vent 414 and then went solo until the Wonder Stuff reformed in 2000.
Over the last 20 years Hunt has released band and solo albums as well as working with the sorely talented violinist Ericka Nockalls.
