Friday's Mystery Box is

...a box full of Hamsters, and not only Hamsters but ones who play Jimi.  So how do they do it or who are they? Read on:  The Hamsters were Snail's-Pace Slim,lead singer and guitar player,  Rev Otis Elevator,drummer of the Hamsters, and  Zsa Zsa Poltergeist, bass player. Their first performances were in local pubs in and around Southend-on-Sea, Essex, England, as a part of the area's well-known R&B scene which had begun in the 1960s; they initially formed for their own amusement and didn't take themselves too seriously Eventually it was decided to turn pro and slowly they started getting bookings from venues further afield. From 1988–1990 they released a limited run of four cassettes and a limited run of vinyl LPs. They still get together from time to time just to run on that little wheel....
