TILLISON HOPES FOR TANGENT WITHOUT HIM
In an interview on ProgDog Radio, Celebr8 star and all round good guy revealed that he likes the concept that The Tangent is more an idea than a group of musicians – and hopes the band will continue without him at some point in the future.
His outfit have long been known for lineup changes, such as the one that saw all but Tillison depart in 2012, but the mainman believes it’s a good thing.
Tillison told Prog Dog Radio: “There’s always some kind of chaos going on. We’ve had yet another series of lineup changes and we’re changing the way the group’s operating for the next album. It’s going back to how we started off, as a project with different musicians involved, and no real view to turning it into a live version.”
He’s currently at work on Le Sacre Du Travail, an album which explores the story of one day in a working life. But he says the lineup working on that record – Jakko Jakszyk, Theo Travis, David Longdon, Jonathan Barrett and Gavin Harrison – are not to be thought of as a permanent band.
Tillison will play an acoustic set at Celebr8.2 and he’ll also deliver a duet set with Matt Stevens.
