The Tangent had settled their last studio work "The Slow Rust Of Forgotten Machinery" as well as their predecessor records beyond time and space. Only musically, though. Listening to the lyrics of mastermind Andy Tillison, it became clear that the formation had arrived in reality and was clearly hitting critical notes. With their current release "Proxy" the supergroup project didn't want to act as a reminder again. A demarcation that the quintet did not really manage to achieve. Tillison feels too committed to various daily topics and is determined to write about them. The 59-year-old no longer calls on his audience to go to the barricades to demand a better life. But he still wants "all of us together to get this planet, on which we live, whole and positive".
eclipsed: 15 years ago, when you started The Tangent, could you imagine that this project would release its eleventh album in 2018?
"The world has changed, but not the band" is the almost defiant motto with which The Tangent promote their new tenth studio album "The Slow Rust Of Forgotten Machinery". And because that is the case, the English have also remained true to their prog roots. But the content of the sextet around mastermind Andy Tillison expresses itself politically like never before.
"The Slow Rust Of Forgotten Machinery", the new studio recording by British progressive rockers The Tangent, has become another exciting affair. Located beyond time and space. But if you listen to the lyrics of mastermind Andy Tillison, you will notice that the group has now arrived in reality. "In fact, the world has changed in the last few years," says Tillison.
