In the Present, Tense —
The Roger Trigaux Interview 1998

Cover art Guitarist/composer Roger Trigaux has been recording and performing his stormy brand of modern gothic sounds as leader of Present since 1980. Like many a young player coming of age during the late 60s, the Brussels native was weaned on the style of Cream and Jimi Hendrix. His first experience with international exposure came via his tenure in a masterfully innovative Belgian ensemble, whom Roger co-founded in 1973 with Daniel Denis and Guy Segers. At the time known as Necronomicon — that infamous tome of blasphemy in H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos — it would one year later evolve into Univers Zero, named after a novel by Belgian supernatural fantasist, Jacques Strenberg.  » Read more
