Blog dedicated to the wonderful lead singer & guitarist of Anathema, Vincent Cavanagh.

“I once suggested a few years ago that we would have no support band on tour, and from the moment the doors opened to the moment we played we would have a low drone; just a low, sub base, drone note the whole time everybody was there, just building the tension. It would gradually alter, it would be a synth that I would be controlling backstage, and it would become more and more expansive and wider and wider and wider until the moment we entered the stage.

“Everyone just said “what the fuck are you taking about?!” he admits with a laugh. I was going “It’s a brilliant idea, why don’t you get on to it?” and nobody would go for it. I might eventually convince them to do it, but people thought I was mad.”
