It's Madness for Hurstmere's Gas Tanks

The Gas Tanks, a Hurstmere Studio Fix band, were one of the support acts for Madness at their Butlin’s ‘House of Fun Weekend’ recently.  The band, made up of Gary, Matt, Ed, Jake, Sam, Evie, Megan and Tom, performed a 45 minute set at this sell-out event. 
The Gas Tanks’ memorable and catchy lyrics follow an anthem style and show their sense of identity.  They received praise and respect from fellow performers saying “they were amazing and it’s a first for us to have a school band in this kind of show.”
The Gas Tanks originate from Hurstmere and the school’s collaboration with Blackfen School for Girls has added the female flair! 
Andy Gilbert, Hurstmere’s Musician in Residence, says “this is a fantastic achievement, following months of dedication and hard work by the pupils.”

The Gas Tanks now famous ‘Chicken Shop’, ‘Taking Care of Business’ and many others can be heard on YouTubeSoundcloud and
