HAMELL ON TRIAL: The Night Guy at the Apocalypse—Profiles of a Rushing Midnight: LP

Hamell On Trial is the nom de scéne of New York folk punk impresario Ed Hamell. The styles on this record vary from crusty acoustic punk to spoken word performance art set to music, but, generally, the tunes are gritty musical narratives about life and death among society’s underbelly masses. The liner notes claim that all the songs were recorded live onto Hamell’s phone—interesting. –The Lord Kveldulfr (Saustex)
