Tankus The Henge
Tankus the Henge have built their reputation on exceptional songwriting, spectacular live performances and relentless hard work, playing hundreds of shows across Europe and building a devoted fan base along the way.
Their funk-fuelled repertoire is wildly eclectic, ranging from New Orleans-inspired swing to heavy rock riffs, and since their beginnings in the ratty alleyways of London’s Soho, the band has evolved into a wild groove machine.
Musically inspired by bands from the British invasion of the sixties and artists such as Tom Waits, Blur, Randy Newman and Queens of the Stone Age, and with lyrics influenced by 20th Century American Literature, specifically the Beat Generation and Gonzo journalism, Tankus the Henge defy categorisation. Their hair-raising show, like no other, has to be seen and heard to be believed. Like a psychedelic, rock-n-roll octopus – only with four more legs.
“Like The Clash from New Orleans” Nikolaj Torp Larsen – The Specials
“With copious helpings of R&B blues, funk, disco, Django, a dose of Dexy’s, a drop of Ray Davies and a pinch of Madness emerging throughout the eleven tracks – it’s an exciting me´lange of sound.” Simon Wells (The Guardian)
