Following the demise of Hunters & Collectors in 1997, lead singer Mark Seymour embarked on the solo career by launching his debut solo album, King With out a Clue, in 1998. Seymour have been an integral part of Hunters & Enthusiasts for the two decades of their lifestyle, so that it was challenging to assume him performing not the sort of guitar-heavy pub rock and roll that his previous music group epitomised for such a long time. On King With out a Hint, however, Seymour were able to present a different aspect to himself, including components of folk and nation into his music. For the record, Seymour enlisted the providers of his sibling Nick, previous bass participant for Crowded Home, Hunters guitarist, Barry Palmer, and drummer Peter Jones. Jointly they created an record that became a achievement in Australia. Several singles had been released through the album, like the outstanding “Last Ditch Cabaret” as well as the haunting “The Ghost of Vainglory,” definitely destined to consider its place alongside therefore a lot of Hunters & Enthusiasts tracks as Australian classics.
