Every once in a while a band comes to my attention that simply blows me away with their simplicity. Krank is just that band. The music on this album is pure kick ass rock-n-roll. There is nothing on this album to get in the way of the straight ahead raw rock-n-roll grooves employed by this band. Lead singer Ginger O'Day has that edgy raunch ' roll vocal style that only the best rock goddesses possess. Ginger's vocals are very similar to Nina Gordon of Veruca Salt (Volcano Girls). In fact, this band could best be described as Veruca Salt in a rock-n-roll ass kicking contest. Although Krank employs far more energy and is more guitar driven and pure than any band I've heard to date, the similarities are there. This is what real rock is all about and Krank take no prisoners. The more I listen to this CD, the more I like it.
Coming out of a decade that has unleashed a music scene that has quickly grown tired and boring, it's nice to see that bands like Krank are emergi

Bio

Krank formed in June of 1999 with Vincent Anthony adding 12 years of bass experience playing with recording artists 20/Twenty in Nashville, TN from 1989-1991 and has opened up for such bands as Rick Cua, Phil Keaggy, and Whiteheart. His funky rock style adds a key rhythmic element to the Krank sound. Krank recently added guitarist "Curly". "Curly" has played predominantly in the Cleveland/Akron band Fox and has had several songs featured on the Howard Stern Show this past year. His guitar work is built upon precise timing and a chunky rock sound that will bring down the house. Krank has also added drummer Terry Salem to the lineup. Terry started a band back in the late nineties called "Winter's Bane" who were picked up by a foreign label in which he recorded their first debut CD in Germany. The lead singer of "Winter's Bane" at the time was Tim "Ripper" Owens who now is the lead singer of Judas Priest. Terry is a Master Time Keeper and brings a style of drumming that adds to the bands fluidity and Krank's driving sound. The most important piece to the Krank sound lies with vocalist Ginger O'Day. Chris Akin from MTV.COM and Bottomline Magazine states, "Easily the most alluring part of KRANK is the vocal work of vocalist Ginger O'Day. O'Day is very reminiscent of the silky aggressive vocal style once displayed by BELINDA CARLISLE. She's got real attitude going on in many of the songs." Ginger's sultry voice and dynamic stage presence is a direct result from years of exper

Hi Krank,

Thanks for the great review of " A Cold Blade Tells" I bought a $75.00 Chinese made amp so the hum on the guitar came as
a factory installed freebie. :-).

I asked Gordon Chapman he if could add his incredible guitar work and rework the song so that it might be more commercially viable. I think it came out really nice.

Glad you enjoyed it.............................. kenney

here's the Gordon Chapman version

If you get a chance you might give Gordon's work here on Bjam a listen. It's pretty awesome stuff.
