On the outskirts of Toronto, two gentleman are in a darkened corner of an after hours club. They’re talking about the family myth: the big pink elephant that has occupied a prominent space in their lives for nearly a quarter century. The two men who are waging this valiant struggle are Josh Reichmann and James Sayce. Over the years, they’ve watched friends and contemporaries lose their sanity or simply just disappear as they cope with the weight of the family myth.
It was 3 years ago Sayce and Reichmann formed a band, called it Tangiers and tried to put the family myth behind them. They put out two albums, everyone seemed to like the records but the weight of carrying such a dark and tumultuous rock on their shoulders caused the band to seek inspiration and solace outside of their native land.
