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. The result is a blend of personalized stamps while taking on its own identity entirely.

A masterful fusion of psych, punk, experimental noise and free jazz. SOH is a wild ride of four well-rounded yet distinctive musicians creating something only these four could. Now, Broken Sound Records is pleased to announce the band’s debut record, Northwest of Hamuretto is due out on March 17th.
