Ham Sandwich – St Christopher

Despite taking a unanimous bashing from all quarters on their chosen name Meath band Ham Sandwich (hmm, there’s a joke in there somewhere) have decided to let the music rather than the moniker do the talking. They’ve already built up a reputation around the Dublin circuit as an unusual live experience, which of course counts for nought unless the music provides a classy backdrop to their antics. Thankfully they come up trumps in this department even if ‘St Christopher’ does nab some of its percussive joy from Nirvana’s ‘Smells…’. The video even strikes a similar theme early doors, albeit in the subtlest of new century ways. ‘St Christopher’ is a glorious success because Podge McNamee and Niamh Farrell’s vocals are diametric and the playing is vivacious and inviting. The tune changes its direction on several occasions leaving a neat map of ideas for the listener to follow, culminating is a jangling riff as satisfying as a packed lunch. KD
