GANKification = improvised skronk with whacked spoken word
Ganks sound gleefully combines avant space noise, improvisation, progressive rock, sampling, electronic effects, fusion, social satire, and spoken word. Its a improvised soundtrack to Mike Walshs tales of paranoia, monsters, the apocalyse, and true love among those who would be called freaks.
Gank has been together for approximately a year and has played many gigs in and around Philadelphia.
