HANK - ALPHABET SERIES J (7")


Hank is a group of enthusiastically amateur female vocalists and instrumentalists who swirl around a bearded Canadian guy named Cab whose singing style alternates between a sort of cockney sneer borrowed from late-70s English punk, an indie boy shout, and a country-ish baritone. Hank's hodgepodge sonic jumble is full of wildly disparate elements - a pounding kickdrum mixing it up with jagged, disjointed guitars stabbed by buzzing bass on the next. Steadfastly unprofessional vocals act as the crazy glue that sticks everything together in a big, exuberant wad. "Spazz-pop", dabs of early hip-hop, and the only thing you can maybe compare it directly to is the Go! Team. (label info)
