When Tank, of the New Orleans based band Tank of the Bangas, first showed up at my studio, neither of us knew where the session would take us. I had sent her some music, asked her to come up with some words, but I had no idea how far she could take it.
Big Bad Wolf was the first song she recorded on the first night that she arrived. Immediately, it was clear that we were in the presence of a blossoming talent. Tank delivers some of the most powerful vocals on the entire album on Big Bad Wolf, expressing all of our frustration with the political powers at be through beautifully crafted lyrics, in a voice that is undeniably her own.
The intro to this song is an old recording I made of Peter Coyote reciting an excerpt from The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge, by Carlos Castaneda. Peter came over to my studio to try to update the recording but nothing came out sounding as authentic as the original. Peter’s voice always gives the impression that there is some wisdom he has yet to impart, that there is something he knows that will always remain a mystery to the outside world. The Castaneda passage only adds to that, and provides a great introduction to the powerhouse that is Tank Ball.
