B: Blood Guts And Beer
Tank were one of the few NWOBHM bands that kind of crossed over into the “punk” catagory and seeing as Bassist – Singer Algy Ward was once a member of The Damned that kind of makes sense. They had a no nonsense approach and were pretty straight forward. Bringing that Motorhead beer drinking no bullshit attitude infused with a slight punk vibe. This was all denim and leather. None of that glammy, look at me makeup and clothes bullshit. And i love it! Still do! When Algy cries, “Whats Inside Me!? – Blood Guts & Beer!” I’m all in!
These guys are probably my fave early 80s metal for all of the reasons sited above…. NO BULLSHIT!
