Tanx/Tanks Bootleg 7" - released 1991

Powerfist Rec P.F.-41302 LE2 0QS black wax orange cover Powerfist Rec P.F.-41302 #006/EP2 black wax blue cover

These songs were recorded on 11.5.91 on B.B.C. radio for the John Peel Sessions. Way of the World was also recorded at these sessions but was left off the 7". People say the tracklisting of the 7" is not listed in the correct order, but i don't own it so I can't say for certain. Unlike the rendition on their Gluey Porch Treatments, "Leech" gets the same treatment here that it got when performed in concert with the extra lyrics/ vocals at the end. Here also is a really cool version of "Theme", originally by bass player Lori Black's former band Clown Alley, who also featured "Ozma" producer and future Melvins bassist Mark Deutrom. Last but not least is a slowed down, heavier version of "Euthanasia" than appeared on Vol. 5 of the "Dope-Guns-'N Fucking in the Streets" compilation put out on Amphetamine Reptile Records. As with all Peel Session studio recordings, sound quality is excellent.
