The Tangent Release Short Film Reacting To Brexit

Progger Andy Tillison and his top-notch outfit, The Tangent, have released a 20 minute short film (i.e., a standard-length prog song) raging against the popular rhetoric and racist vitriol surrounding the recent vote in England for that country to renounce its membership in the European Union. "A Few Steps Down The Wrong Road" is loud, brash, and unapologetic in its intensity, featuring alternating narration, singing, and instrumental passages. It's about as punk as a prog song can get.

On his Facebook page, Tillison offered the following dedication: "So For all those people, for Marie Eve, for Dagmara, For Tushar, for my amazing students from countries I don't even know how to pronounce. who teach me more than I teach them - this song is for you. It's a song from a man who loves his Yorkshire, his England, his Britain and his Europe more than the self serving hacks from the tabloid press seem to love anything. This is The Tangent. We are a PROGRESSIVE ROCK BAND. This is our new song. Play as loud as you can - and make sure you listen to the very end."
