That Fucking Tank and Shield Your Eyes Scottish Micro-Tour April 2011
This April two of the UKs most tour-loving underground rock acts hit the road in attempt to go very North. Lord only knows how That Fucking Tank’s normally real-ale influenced instrumental high-octane riff mash-ups will be enhanced by fine whiskey consumption, whilst Shield Your Eyes promise to further negotiate the under-explored pathways laid by British progressive blues bands of the 1960s and 70s in a manner that keeps noise-rock loving hipsters grinning like mentalists.
The trip will also act as a nostalgic homeward journey for Andy (guitarist in Tank and bass player for this tour in Shield ‘Em) who was born in the Highlands and is looking forward to meeting up with his childhood friend who believed himself to be a dog.
