The freewheeling Tankus the Henge, the chameleonic gonzo rock’n’rollers from London; always on tour, never stopping to consider the consequences. Originally based around the songwriting of Jaz Delorean, but now an eclectic gang of international travelling musicians, with a myriad influences to boot. Styled after the relentlessly touring acts of the late 1960s, Tankus the Henge ask what is a band anyway? It’s live, it’s original, it doesn’t answer to anyone. For that one wild night of lights, sound and overwhelming emotion, then roaring off into the night, tyre tracks in the dust.
Over 1000 gigs in, and no signs of slowing down, setting stages alight at Glastonbury Festival (UK), Trans Musicales (FR), Fusion (DE, to Montreux Jazz Festival (CH), WOMAD (E), and Boomtown Fair (UK)… and countless others across the world.
After the release of 2020’s “Luna Park!” – (produced by Gethin Pearson), the band are beginning to work on album #4 and will continue their work collaborating with visual artists to expand their unique world of storytelling.
File next to: The Flaming Lips, Little Feat, Arcade Fire, The Cat Empire, Gogol Bordello, Blur.
A standing show.
