Tanker is the debut album by New Zealand band, Bailter Space, released in 1988. It features more minimalist playing and a less claustrophobic/dense overall sound than the band's later releases. The hyperkinetic song "Grader Spader" was released as a 12" single/EP.
Matador Records reissued Tanker on CD in 1995; the 1987 Nelsh EP (including the songs "New Man", "El Whizzo", "Our Aim", "I'm in Love with These Times", "Separate Circles", and "Now I Will Live") was tacked on as well. This marked the first time either had appeared on CD format.
Tankers can range in size of capacity from several hundred tons, which includes vessels for servicing small harbours and coastal settlements, to several hundred thousand tons, for long-range haulage. Besides ocean- or seagoing tankers there are also specialized inland-waterway tankers which operate on rivers and canals with an average cargo capacity up to some thousand tons. A wide range of products are carried by tankers, including:
Tankers are a relatively new concept, dating from the later years of the 19th century. Before this, technology had simply not supported the idea of carrying bulk liquids. The market was also not geared towards transporting or selling cargo in bulk, therefore most ships carried a wide range of different products in different holds and traded outside fixed routes. Liquids were usually loaded in casks—hence the term "tonnage", which refers to the volume of the holds in terms of how many tuns or casks of wine could be carried. Even potable water, vital for the survival of the crew, was stowed in casks. Carrying bulk liquids in earlier ships posed several problems:
Aerial refueling, also referred to as air refueling, in-flight refueling (IFR), air-to-air refueling (AAR), and tanking, is the process of transferring aviation fuel from one military aircraft (the tanker) to another (the receiver) during flight.
The procedure allows the receiving aircraft to remain airborne longer, extending its range or loiter time on station. A series of air refuelings can give range limited only by crew fatigue and engineering factors such as engine oil consumption. Because the receiver aircraft can be topped up with extra fuel in the air, air refueling can allow a takeoff with a greater payload which could be weapons, cargo, or personnel: the maximum takeoff weight is maintained by carrying less fuel and topping up once airborne. Alternatively, a shorter take-off roll can be achieved because take-off can be at a lighter weight before refueling once airborne. Aerial refueling has also been considered as a means to reduce fuel consumption on long distance flights greater than 3,000 nautical miles (5,600km; 3,500mi). Potential fuel savings in the range of 35-40% have been estimated for long haul flights (including the fuel used during the tanker missions).
Clean (stylized as Clean.) is the second EP release by American noise rock band Whores. It was released on October 29, 2013, via Brutal Panda Records. The EP was produced and mixed by Ryan Boesch, who is known for his engineering work for acts such as Melvins, Helmet and Foo Fighters.
Upon its release, Clean generally received positive reviews. Natalie Zina Walschots of Exclaim! praised the album, writing: "The songs are appallingly catchy and "Blue Blood," in particular, drives its hooks in as deeps as barbed porcupine quills, refusing to be dislodged. Rarely has an act of musical self-immolation been so enjoyable."Orlando Weekly music reviewer Bao Le-Huu stated: "Dealing in exhilarating violence and rampaging heaviness, this record is kin to releases by bands like Unsane and Pissed Jeans, but with more concussive torque and searing clarity." Andy O'Connor of Pitchfork was rather mixed in his assessment of the album: "It doesn't push or expand the genre, and it doesn't feel like that's the point: it, more or less, feels like they wanted something to put on their merch table, and an excuse to ditch town for a week, and Clean is serving that purpose. Not the worst thing in the world, but also not the most inspired."Sputnikmusic staff reviewer Greg Fisher felt that the album "may not appeal to those who seek experimentation in heavy music", while stating that the band's "ultra-loud brand of noise rock seethes with enough unbridled anger, songwriting dexterity and alluring hooks to exert a lasting impact."
Clean is the second full-length studio album from industrial band Deitiphobia, released in 1994 by Myx Records. It is the earliest Deitiphobia album not to feature Brent Stackhouse, who left in 1992, and was also the band's debut for the Myx label. The album features Sheri Shaw, who remained with Deitiphobia until it dissolved in 2001, and Michael Knott, who produced Fear of the Digital Remix and was also the founder of the band's previous record label, Blonde Vinyl.
