On Saturday the 15th of May Jed Potts & the Hillman Hunters will release the single How’mi’mentuh – number 4 in a series of singles focusing exclusively on original material. This is outstanding, these are class musicians plying their trade.

Here there is a New Orleans vibe going on. Complex chord structure interplaying with a great rhythm section. A great tune, here’s to number five!


Reassembling the same team responsible for the band’s self-titled 2018 debut album, “How’mi’mentuh” was recorded and mixed by Graeme Young at Chamber Studio, Edinburgh, mastered by Reuben Taylor; with artwork by Craig Macfadyen aka Lentil.


“A fictional story of the age-old clash of love and scheduling, set in New Orleans. I love New Orleans and have spent a bit of time there over the last few years. I came up with the musical bones of this song when I was trying to figure out if it was possible to approximate Professor Longhair-style piano boogie on the guitar. By the way, that same curiosity led to the little guitar motif at the end of Swashbucklin’.

There’s a lot of daft word-play, which is a sort-of trademark part of the Hillmans vibe, I think. The “swingin’” lyric near the end was originally put in as a temporary live cue to Jonny and Charlie to change feel, but we liked it and so it stuck.”
