The group originated with guitarist Brian Parker and the band from Hertfordshire, England, was called the Hunters, who recorded for the Fontana label in 1961. Parker left the Hunters in early 1962 and joined Adam Faith's (singing idol) backing band.

Like many Singapore re-union gigs, there was a short come-back with the group in 2001 in England, with Parker playing lead. For the audience, it was really emotional to listen to so many old tunes, especially the perennial hit, "Runaway."

"Another instrumental on the same record, Teen Scene was pretty well known. It had been written by singer Teddy Randazzo. The Hunters gave it a real punchy treatment and used an added vocal chorus to boost up the sound. The Hunters grew up in the Cheshunt locality, the boyhood home of Cliff Richard.
