SPIRIT OF HAMLET Release Debut Album

Share This:

Spirit of Hamlet is a long-distance collaboration of four absolute history-making juggernauts: Mike Watt (Minutemen, fIREHOSE, The Stooges), Kawabata Makoto (Acid Mothers Temple), Scotty Irving (Clang Quartet), and highly-acclaimed songwriter/producer Benjy Johnson.

I have been a guest on Mike’s show, and he was kind enough to ask me if I would be interested in recording some music with him. NO WAY was I going to pass that up!” – recalls Scotty Irving, whose drum part kick-started the collaboration of these four well-rounded yet distinctive musicians.

Being impressed by Scotty as a musician, Mike Watt, a prolific collaborator decided to set the foundation of a new project: “The spirit Scotty had for music was infectious on me, so much so that I asked him to send drums so we could collab and get a project going…”. Recording his drumparts in one night, Irving set the foundation for the project. With the whole fearlessness of experimental music and a punk-rock ethics.

The debut release from the super-group is out now via Broken Sound Tapes.
