Biography
These days, the music press is littered with bands described as 'psychedelic', 'drone-rock', 'with hints of Krautrock' and so on. In their own high-energy way, Lancaster/Manchester-based Three Dimensional Tanx have been ploughing this particular furrow for over 10 years now. During this time, they have been 'sound carriers' for Can man Damo Suzuki, performed at Tate Britain with artist Linder, played at a Spacemen 3 art exhibition at the request of Will Carruthers (Spacemen 3, Spiritualised, Dead Skeletons) and smashed it at 2013's Liverpool Psych Fest.

Their live reputation is so fierce, that they managed to get a full crowd at Liverpool Psych Fest even though their set clashed with Fuzz and Hookworms. They've also played with bands like White Hills, Gnod, Trembling Bells, Lucid Dream, the Cosmic Dead, Helicon and many more from the UK's psych-scene.

The band's recorded work was on hiatus as former guitarist David Blackwell left to concentrate full-time on the Lovely Eggs. However, with two new members, the now 5-piece Three Dimensional Tanx set to work creating a new album for a new era.

Album opener 'I Am Go' is just over 2 minutes worth of psych-garage-rock. 'Caterpillar' is a stoned-groove that starts off almost 'baggy' and builds up so much it ends up NEU!-ishly monolithic. 'Loose Id Syd' encapsulates the MC5 and Stooges energetic riffing with early Who drums splattered all over it. Elsewhere, there's the swirling, intense 'Here Come the Flies', the multi-layered onslaught of 'Backwards Telescope' the synth/sequencer/drum-machine-based 'Clark's Momentum' and four more tracks that are all different but share the unique Tanx approach.

The dynamic rhythm section propels the band with a rarely encountered ferocity. All kinds of electric guitars, their trademark 60's Philicorda organ, a host of synths, electronics, and even electrified zithers and harp make for a vivid soundscape. The vocals are sometimes deep in the mix, at other times biting like a rabid John Lydon. If the live sound is sometimes a wall of noise, then the studio album reveals the riffs, motifs, interplay and other subtleties. But this is committed rock n roll.
