If you’re late to the raving-mad-anti-establishment-comedy-storytelling-guitar-string-punishing-folk party that is Ed Hamell – or his nom de plume Hamell On Trial – have we got a package for you. On July 8, RBR releases Ed’s deluxe CD/DVD Rant & Roll, which captures his incomparable one-man show “The Terrorism of Everyday Life” and takes you on the road with the provocative, hysterical, potty-mouthed troubadour.
The CD captures Ed’s Herald Award-winning “Terrorism of Everyday Life” show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, including a story about how he pissed off John Lennon, an advertisement for a glutton-friendly restaurant called “The Trough,” the tale of his near-fatal car accident, and explorations of what happens when parents who did drugs have inquisitive kids.
The DVD mixes footage from the Edinburgh show and a gig at Babeville, along with interviews, off-the-cuff road segments, DIY animation and Hamell’s own cartoons.
