Hankshaw is a band I never got to see and it seriously bums me out. They were such a great blend of pop and indie rock that you couldnt help singing along. My friend Roy played their full length, "Nothing Personal" for me and asked if the singer was male or female. I was blown away when I found out the singer, "Harold", was a man. His voice is so high and sweet that I couldnt believe it. The first time I remember them coming down was with Overcast (???!?!?!?) and I didnt go for some reason. Again I missed them with The Get Up Kids right after Nothing Personal came out. Anyway, they were great but after Everyday I Wish You Harm, I just lost interest in their later material. But these three records are incredible and still get regular listens. As far as I know, the full length is out of print as it was originally on Network Sound and then re-released by No Idea. I checked the No Idea site and they didnt have it listed. If it is in print, someone let me know and Ill take it down.
