GANGER Canopy 1999


Artist Biography by

Hammock Style
The Scottish post-rock quartet Ganger formed in 1995, its original members -- bassists Stuart Henderson and Graham Gavin, drummer James Young and guitarist Lucy McKenzie -- coming together out of a shared affection for the classic Krautrock sound. Debuting with the EP Half Nelson, 20-minute impromptu jams like "Jellyneck" characterized the group's early approach, but as their music grew more disciplined and eclectic the line-up began to crumble, with McKenzie the first to exit to pursue a career in the visual arts. After Gavin quit in 1997, Henderson and Young recruited ex-Fukiyama bassist Natasha Noramly and guitarist Craig B., with the revitalized Ganger resurfacing in early 1998 with the EP With Tongues Twisting Words; the full-length Hammock Style followed later that year, but the band broke had broken up by 1999.
