Deluxe Edition (CD+DVD)
Go ahead and call him a one-man band if you like; plenty of people have. ("A performer at his peak" is how Scotland's Herald prefers to describe him.) But as this deluxe edition CD+DVD proves, Ed Hamell has much more up his sleeve than an extra guitar pick. The live CD, The Terrorism of Everyday Life, is the Official Bootleg from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, capturing Ed's Herald Award-winning theatrical performance. The companion DVD, Rant & Roll, celebrates the day-to-day life of a journeyman musician through fast-moving, often-hilarious performances onstage, backstage, and behind the wheel driving from one venue to the next. Equipped with a guitar he strums like a machine gun, a politically astute mind that can't stop moving, and a mouth that can be profound one minute and profane the next, this collection is as unique as the man himself.
