- Three Dimensional Tanx by Three Dimensional Tanx
It's reached that point in the week where I'm running out of time and still have a handful of reviews to squeeze out before the update, so you'll have to excuse the rushed nature of these next few. Three Dimensional Tanx play a kind of neon psychedelic power pop with really bright, clear tones, loads of indulgent wah guitar and often a kind of mod-meets-punk feel like they've spent a lot of their life listening to nothing but The Jam and the Buzzcocks. Not that these are bad bands to listen to.
Neither of those bands exhibited quite the same enthusiasm for drugged-up psychedelia as these guys, though, as we veer from that breakneck power-pop to some more trippy and laid back numbers with a touch of Primal Scream about them. These guys sure do like their wah guitar. It's the peppier songs I'm liking the most on this first listen though, as I feel when they aim for the slower psychedelia the clean and straightforward tones they're producing just aren't weird enough - numbers like 'Caterpillar' and 'Hermaphrodite's Child' start to plod by the end. When they're blasting them out hard, fast and dumb they sure do know their way around a pop tune though.

Psych as a launch pad - Open pedals and minds ... Pop songs with balls , punk rock with an eye on the future and a foot in the past - the Tanx experience is one that needs to be seen and heard in a live setting ... great cd [ vinyl would be super ] lovely art work and i am lead to believe they are doing a 45 for SUNSTONE records very soon ...look out for gigs - buy the cd and immerse yourself in the Tanx world for a little while - it's a great destination
