The Hamsters – Holmfirth Picturdrome 3 Feb 2012

This is the farewell tour from the Hamsters and for one reason or another I’ve caught them once before when they supported Wishbone Ash at the same venue, which is clearly my lose.

The show is split into two halves, the first being about an hour of alternate Hendrix and ZZ Top covers before the band take a well earned break of 10 minutes or so before returning with a couple of acoustic numbers of their own. Then it’s back to full on electric rocking blues, with some of their own material and of course more hits by ZZ Top and Hendrix, which is all brought to a great conclusion just after eleven o’clock with a great sing alomh to Tube Snake Boogie.

There are still some dates left on the tour, so please check this great band out.
