I am Rob Petrie's brother, and ran the lights and sound for all the "TANK" bands - Jim Wilson

In Memory of

Bert "The Kid" Walchuk

Mike Sampson and I started TANK.. Mike named the band and also did the graphics. Kevin Yuskow went on to be Kevin Purple Hayes on CFMI and then later Kevin Hayes and ran the Community Cruiser for CKNW.

We were the back up band for many Sweeny Todd shows.  We were a great band but disco came in and wipe us out!

James Thackray, January 2010
