A lot of the projects in the electro genre are one-man projects. Why is Battery Cage a real band? Where do you see the advantages of being a band and not a solo-project?
In 1998 there was another Battery Cage album finished but never been released officially when I'm informed well. Please tell me what went wrong at that time!

Tyler: Ten years ago, when we were optimistic youngsters, we wanted to make a strong political statement, particularly concerning animal rights, and the name just seemed to work. We were able to incorporate the "cage" theme in to our live show and graphics from that period of time as well. As time went by, and members came and went from the project, the name accumulated a history of it's own, and after several live shows and compilation releases, changing it just wouldn't work. Besides, my personal politics haven't changed in regards to animal rights, so I continue to stand behind it.
Tyler: It's a beautiful, sunny day here in San Francisco, so how can I complain? Things are great, and only getting better. One new Informatik album just released, a new Battery Cage is weeks away, and a new AEC getting mastered as we speak. Things are definitely looking up, I'd say.
