That Fucking Tank was formed in 2003 for a one-off performance by friends-since-school Andy Abbott and James Islip who met over an owl in 1991.

Andy plays a specially tuned baritone guitar through guitar and bass amplifiers, James plays a minimal drum kit. Their novel name, energetic performances and extreme volume have had them perform all over Europe and the UK with brain-mangling regularity, sharing stages and tours with bands including Hella, Q and not U, Lungfish, Oxes, Unsane, Kid Commando, GI Joe, Chevreuil, Grabba Grabba Tape, Poltergroom, US Maple, Neptune, Zu, Whitehouse, AIDS Wolf, Vialka, Nervous Kid, Don Caballero, Hoover, The Fucking Champs, Lightning Bolt, Melt Banana, The Fall, Bilge Pump, Foals, The Ex and the like.

That Fucking Tank is a band committed to testing and advancing the Do-It-Yourself ethos. They aim to book gigs, record records and make music in a way that contributes towards an alternative to the profit-driven music industry; demonstrating that good music can be experienced at, and emerge from, the grassroots.
