THAT FUCKING TANK - China Tour 2015 7"
Hot Salvation Records / Gringo Records
Leeds noise-rock legends That Fucking Tank with Gringo Records of Nottingham.
We've been fans of TFT for ten years or more, and when drummer Jimmy Islip got in touch about releasing some work for their upcoming tour of China, we jumped at the chance.
Two massive slabs of noise rock in the form of Chumbawambager and Pigeon Club, with Abbot's signature sprawling Baritone/Octave guitar and Islip showing a new taut restraint, ramping the dynamics of their compositions to new heights. Touches of Fucking Champs, Oxes, Trans Am and the behemoths of instrumental noise-rock are present, but TFT's roots in punk rock are always bubbling below the surface.
That Fucking Tank have shared stages and tours with bands including Hella, Q and not U, Lungfish, Oxes, Unsane, Kid Commando, GI Joe, Chevreuil, Grabba Grabba Tape, Poltergroom, US Maple, Neptune, Zu, Whitehouse, AIDS Wolf, Vialka, Nervous Kid, Don Caballero, Hoover, The Fucking Champs, Lightning Bolt, Melt Banana, The Fall, Bilge Pump, Foals, The Ex and the like.
