Edinburgh experimental label Giant Tank showcases a cavalcade of Leith-based avant-noise practitioners in their own 'hood. Expect homebrewed electronics, leadweight clatter, outsider vocals, blissful drones and improv absurdia.

"...Reasons to go see Giant Tank... Edinburgh's premier promoters of aktionist noise happenings... It's not music. It's just noise. And there is nothing like it... It's not big. Or clever. But at various times it promises a stomach-churning, vomit-inducing, spiteful ugly and puerile racket. All of which are to be encouraged..." - The List
