"Branches" because this is music created by the latest line up from the Hamsters family tree , a stable line up too ! In fact the most stable ever Hamsters line up now though still only 10 months old,

The Hamsters tale as has been well documented has been bloody and fractured , punctured by violently differing opinions , and yet there has remained a bond of brotherhood despite that , pride in our work runs deep even while we have drunk and laughed and made merry we always put the song first , we are of course proud of these recordings we present to you , they were recorded with smiles on our faces , I hope they make you smile too ,
