BACK IN THE UK...armed with a battered 1937 Gibson acoustic guitar that he amplifies mightily and strums like a machine gun, a politically astute mind that can't stop moving, and a mouth that can be profane one minute and profound the next, Hamell's caustic wit and devil-may-care attitude has long been a favorite of anti-establishment icons Aesop Rock, Kimya Dawson, Ani DiFranco and the critical elite inciting Rolling Stone magazine to call him "Bald, bold and superbad!" Henry Rollins says "Hamell is a one man rock show!" He has been described as "Bill Hicks, Hunter S. Thompson, and Joe Strummer all rolled into one" by Philadelphia Weekly and a "one man Tarantino flick: loud, vicious, luridly hilarious, gleefully and deeply offensive" by the Village Voice. His performances invoke thoughts of the great, rebellious satirists and social commentators of the past: Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor and Bill Hicks. There's no way around his obscenity but in that is a willingness to fight for the free thinkers of the world.

Hamell commands the stage like no other. His guitar wraps you in intensity. And he pulls out a little bit of everything from the blues to a waltz. He is a master of punk-folk storytelling of side-stream and less fortunate characters. His approach is incredibly fast-paced, witty, focused, over thought, and on the mind-blowing side of verbose. His perspective are often amazing with a righteous, humorous and clever, but clear attack on intolerance and injustice. Not for everyone's taste but should absolutely be seen by everyone at least once.
