Tamworth Herald Features

Tamworth Herald – 10/04/81
Musicbox - Heavy Hamma out for a hit
INTERESTED in heavy metal at its most demonic? If you are, be at the Chequers in Hopwas tonight (Friday).

For fans of this particular type of music, already well catered for in Tamworth, now have another band to follow.

Hamma make their debut at the Chequers tonight.

The band have been formed out of the ashes of Ledbelly, the Polesworth R 'n' B outfit who called it a day some months back.

"Stormy" Swan, vocals and Andrew Bradford, bass have joined forces with ex-Belly men Frank Ingley, guitar, Dave Ford, rhythm guitar and Colin Hart, drums, to form Hamma.

Frank explains: "We have moved away from the bluesy feel that Ledbelly had to a more hard-hitting heavy rock style".

AC/DC and Sammy Hagar are cited as the main influence of this potentially exciting new band and at the moment they will be performing 40 per cent original material.

HAMMA – The Chequers
HEAVY metal band Hamma certainly lived up to the big billing given to them before Friday’s debut gig at the Chequers.

Described as demonic HM, they didn’t disappoint a packed house who came to watch just that.
