THE NO'JAYS: After twenty years, the first big alt-country band The Jayhawks have brought their business to a graceful close. Rounding off a three week tour which saw original singer Mark Olson back in the band for the first time in a decade, the band has decided it's run its course. Other singer Gary Louris told a passing local paper:

"I don't think we're going to do anything else. We felt like we've done that enough. Everybody just wants to do something else. We haven't completely closed the door, but … I'd say it's dead."

Louris' interests in other things may be down to his having spent time hanging out with the Dixie Chicks.
