A PARTY THAT'S OVER BEFORE IT'S BEGUN

As some of you may know, this blog takes its name from a song by the mighty Sleater-Kinney, so we're sorry to hear that they've split ("gone on indefinite hiatus"), according to their website:

After eleven years as a band, Sleater-Kinney have decided to go on indefinite hiatus. The upcoming summer shows will be our last. As of now, there are no plans for future tours or recordings.

We feel lucky to have had the support of many wonderful people over the years. We want to thank everyone who has worked with us, written kind words about us, performed with us, and inspired us.

But mostly we want to extend our gratitude to our amazing fans. You have been a part of our story from the beginning. We could not have made our music without your enthusiasm, passion, and loyalty. It is you who have made the entire journey worthwhile.

With love and thanks,
Sleater-Kinney


We want to be alone with our thoughts, thank you, and All Hands on the Bad One

[Thanks to Rae for the news]

I'm gutted, but it was a beautiful ride.

Sleater-Kinney is dead, long live Janet, Carrie and Corin.

It was good while it lasted. S-K was tremendously prolific over those 11 years, and toured mercilessly. I'm surprised they didn't burn out earlier.

Oh, boo. They were ace when I saw them live a few years ago, but I'm still gutted they didn't do One More Hour. Now I guess I'll never have the pleasure.
