TANKUS THE HENGE

The world of Tankus the Henge is uplifting and wild, dark and heartfelt. A 6 piece powerhouse of a band drawing visual and musical influences from old time Fairgrounds to modern day Circus; The Beatles to Tom Waits and Gogol Bordello to Radiohead, they embody a look and a sound that lies somewhere between their South East London home and the carnival town of New Orleans.
