Previously released on CD by Shitkatapult, now available in a 180 gram 3LP version: the first two records are the full Tank U record plus an exclusive vinyl track, the third record is all-instrumental, plus one CD, one pin, one patch and one sticker. Packaged in a deluxe boxset. After years of waiting, Shitkatapult label-head Marco Haas aka T.Raumschmiere finally releases the album that completes the series begun by the two previous Mute albums, Radio Blackout (2003) and Blitzkrieg Pop (2005). I Tank U is the end result of a musical progress: it is dark electronica, techno history, and songwriting, jammed in a terrific rock record. The number of featured guests on this album is remarkable: the notorious energy rappers from Deichkind with The Crack Whore Society, the alien rappers from the Puppetmastaz, the great Tim Vanhamel from Deus and Millionaire, the artist duo Warren Suicide, as well as Lilian Hak, Barbara Panther and Gene Serene. The rapping techno beats, cranky patterns, eerie melodies and those front row beasts gushing with energy do not compete with each other, but create an entity together. The live drums and guitars meet generated synth sounds and distorted bass lines. I Tank U is more of an electronic rock album than a rocking electronic album. Either way, T.Raumschmiere continues to defy rules in a refreshing way, just in the nick of time.
