SCARCITY OF TANKS « No Endowments » LP
Scarcity of Tanks is a band formed and totally negated in Cleveland, Ohio, United States of America. No endowments for defender.
Cleveland, Ohio based wordsmith Matthew Wascovich leads this amorphous unit of avant-rockers in a noisy fusion of hardcore word choice and houserocking skronkitude. SST fans be warned!
Raw, high energy tracks loaded with avant-rock jamming and intense lyrical explorations that will remind most snobs vaguely of a more straight-ahead rockin’, Stooges damaged Saccharine Trust, but SOT really has its own direction. Featuring Weasel Walter (The Flying Luttenbachers, XBXRX), Andrew Klimek (X-Blank-X, Johnny & The Dicks), Scott Pickering (My Dad Is Dead, Happy Flowers), and many others..yes many others because Wascovich ever-mutating collective is always augmented by heavy hitters, including the subtly sparkling Television-style guitarist Tom Watson (Slovenly, Overpass) and the fully raging bassist Mike Watt (the Minutemen, Firehose, Dos, the Madonnabees, Banyan, the Stooges)…Cleveland wise guy John Petkovic (Cobra Verde, Death of Samantha) is also part of the gang,
The group met and recorded tracks during 2007-2008 in Cleveland, Ohio and Oakland, California. The album was mastered by Weasel Walter (Flying Luttenbachers). The cover art is by Devendra Banhart.
