CD #1 is from a show I did on my birthday at The House of Blues in Chicago. I always try to do something interesting and fun on my birthday. (In 1997 I was in Bangkok--no show, but I caught a good sunset.) I picked Chicago because it's always a great time there. CD #2 is culled from shows I did in Australia in October 1997. The audiences are tremendous there. I tried to balance the two discs. The first is a faster-paced run; the second is a more settled-in storytelling pace. The name came from a cover idea. I had this image of students in a classroom with thought balloons over their heads with
a tank in it--a think tank. I figured it would be a good cover because the visual is so over the top and exaggerated, much like the record. The name "Think Tank" just stuck. So, no, I didn't call the album "Think Tank" because I regard my brain as some great intellectual engine, or because I perceive these shows as a higher-learning experience. They're a good time, and that's all. -- Henry Rollins
