Anyone else clock that Andy Tillison sings and plays on the new Moongarden album 'Songs from the Lighthouse. I hear you shriek "what has this to do with the Flower Kings?" Well, nothing other than Andy and Roine played with the Tangent.

Probably Hasse is better good looking, not my sort of man though, but I find TY really sexy . wink. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. smiley

I find the conventional stereotypes of beauty quite boring.

But why donīt you keep on talking about TFK, Iīm sure you have still a lot of interesting things to say. wink



Scruffy-looking, dishevelled, glazed eyes - Yorke looks a typical druggy if you ask me! grin
Methinks Hasse wins this contest hands down.
And talking of Hasse - when is he going to start wearing spectacles? One by one, the whole band is getting them; Roine, Tomas, Jonas, Hasse must be next. Surely, that will make the band the 'biggest spectacle' in the world of music?

Yes, I'm tired....zzzzzzzzzzzzzz laugh

This PART 4 video gives me a new appreciation for TSONE http://youtube.com/watch?v=RHYhZAzFFhk&feature=related

The band is captivating cheesy

Isn't that just amazing?

Not a note out of place. Simply incredible musicians!!

I've said it before and I'll say it again........they should be playing in (at least) sold out theatres rather than to 100 people in a little club. I'd so like to see them reap the rewards that their 10 amazing albums so deserve.

And, as I always say Nov, I agree wholeheartedly.
Yet, in some ways, I think a small, intimate club can provide an excellent atmosphere for this kind of band.
The audience can really feel part of the show in those conditions.
I'm not a lover, personally, of huge outdoor arenas, where you have to watch a huge screen to get a good view.
I'd have loved to see Genesis playing around '71-72, when they were still struggling to get somewhere and playing small venues.
Imagine the fantastic atmosphere there! An up close and personal show.

Mentioning Genesis in my last post makes me wonder, once again, what they would, or could sound like now, if Roine did join them.
I think he would bring an extra dimension to their music; we know he can play like Hackett, but he could also bring in some different textures and ideas.
I think he would shake them up with his enthusiasm. But, could he get his ideas past Tony? And would they be compatible musically? It would be interesting to see. smiley

Tony and Roine.......now there's a mouth-watering prospect.

I'd say that they were my two favourite musicians from the last 40 years!

Good grief! You didn't know he played on the first two Tangent albums? tongue
Well, he did! And his playing is wonderful, on both. wink

I only have two cd's by tangent which are more recent, have not got quite into this band. So my interest level is fairly low on Tangent stuff. sad

My favourite Tangent album overall is the first one, The Music That Died Alone. It's also the shortest, which is quite astonishing, considering Roine is on it!
It's brilliant, trust me. wink

One of my favourite tracks off 'The Music That Died Alone' is The Canterbury Sequence. A three part tribute to the Canterbury sound.
It's superb, and Roine's in fine form on it. wink
