Hamell on Trial, RuthTheodore
One man, one guitar, Bill Hicks' sense of humour, a Lou Reed chord book and a cast of Slim Shadys that could have just walked off the set of Mean Streets. That's the blueprint for the incredible, raw, yet also pretty damn funny Hamell on Trial aka New York's unstoppable motormouth Ed Hamell.
It's a dynamic performance informed by politics, passion, intelligence and the all-important sense of humor. Armed with a battered 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 favourite of anti-establishment icons Aesop Rock, Kimya Dawson, and Ani Difranco.
