TANGERINE NEBULA CANCEL ALBUM AND TOUR DUE TO INJURY
Sydney tech-metal/mathcore outfit Tangerine Nebula have had tohold off the release of their debut album “Naked Singularity” due totheir guitarist sustaining an injury whilst recording. Luke Skully, 23,was recording riffs to the album song “Turbine”, which according tothe band, contains a fast, syncopated polyrhythmic tremolo sectionthat goes continually for a minute and a half.As Skully had only been in the band for two months (having replacedformer guitarist Jed Claymore) he’d been given little time to learn thematerial perfectly in time for the recording. After twenty attempts of recording the difficult section, Skully had to stop playing as his fingerswere locked permanently in place around his guitar pick.
It’s very painful for him at the moment and he will require months of ther-apy to get the movement back in his fingers
lead vocalist Jim Tomlinsontold The Fallout of his bandmate’s injury.Despite Skully’s determination to continue with the band after hisrehabilitation, Sydney osteotherapist Dr Roger Jacobs, who has dealtwith other similar cases to Luke Skully’s injury, feels not-so-optimistic.
“More of these ‘technical’ styled musical groups have been surfacing over the years since the style became popular, and consequently, the number of musicians with Luke’s condition are increasing rapidly. The effects of techni-cal music are frighteningly serious. Overall, prevention is the best therapy
