We read the news that Jonas Reingold has return to The Tanget, a group he co-founded, this weekend through Facebook. Read the whole press release:
We are absolutely delighted that Flower Kings/Karmakanik and Founder Tangent Member JONAS REINGOLD returned to the Tangent project earlier in the first few days of 2013 and has since recorded all the bass parts for the new album “Le Sacre Du Travail”. This puts the salivating combination of Gavin Harrison’s amazing drumming and Jonas’ legendary bass playing together for the first time ever either live or on CD.
“I am F**ing over the moon” was Andy Tillison’s reaction, “I am so pleased he came back, I didn’t know what I had ’til it was gone. Not only that but it was my daft decision to stop working with him in 2008 because of fallout from other things happening in my life at the time. So getting the ‘Yes’ was a really happy moment. We’ve just picked up where we left off and it’s been a lovely session and my phone bill is enormous”

Strangely enough, circumstances have brought together a lineup of The Tangent that sees an almost full re-uniting of the “Not As Good As The Book” lineup.
