TNT News, Get It Here!
Also, Cindy has been very busy with acting school studying under Nancy Sivak at the Lyric School of Acting in the past year and a half. And, seeing as she had so much fun in Blaine Thurier's last film production: 'Low Self-Esteem Girl', she's at it again, working her part as 'Sally' in a new production entitled 'Male Fantasy' to which they are also hoping to get into this year's Toronto Film Festival! Best of luck ladies and gents! Oh, and if you were wondering who the lead man was; it's no other than Canned Hamm's Rob Dayton! How purrfect!
Get It Here 2nd! Or Happy New Year!

"Anyway, the album is great. "We'll Entertain You" is extremely hillarious, even without the visual stimulus, (which admittedly, adds a lot during s*it like "Father & Son"). Tracks 3-6 ("Father & Son," "Karazma," "High On Life," & "Karaoke Lady") drag a bit, especially the lattest (!!), but the brilliant power-ballad "I Kissed All the Girls At the Party" is a perfect foray into that "genre." "Bubble Bath" features wildly creative and interesting call-and-response vocals, "Shortnin' Bread" is an interesting oldies cover, where the Hamms display far greater ability to choose songs to cover than the Fabs ever did (Chuck Berry!? That's so cliche!), "Platonic Friend" addresses the depths of the human experience effectively, and "Bells Of Sex" is the clear highlight of the album.
Oh! The production! Brilliant. An abandoning of the Phil Spectoresque wall-of-sound so frequently (ab)utilized (!!) by modern groups, Peter Mills and Stephen Hamm decide to let the melody and lyrics speak for themselves and go "old-skewl" with a cheap Casio keyboard approach, similar to the approach utilized by Nirvana on "Bleach," which was recorded for under $700! One gets the impression that Messrs. Hamm didn't even spend $70 on this one, but, like intelligent investing in a diversified portfolio, containing both high-risk and low-risk stocks, their approach pays off handsomely." - Ben Dweck
Canned Hamm's new work-in-progress will tentatively be entitled "Karazma Reimagined" according to our source. The concept for this new release is basically to have Canned Hamm's friends' bands remake versions of songs from CH's first album. News has it that The Tennessee Twin -truly- got assigned to remake the classic track "High On Life". Apparently TT guitarist, Shane Nelken, has a hilarious monologue in the middle of the song! Friends in the CH camp are not sure on the release date but we'll have more news for you as the time approaches. In the meantime, visit the Hamm's here for the latest: cannedhamm.tv
