Is there a correct term for the ending of a reunion? The question becomes pertinent with the sad news that The Fire Engines are calling it a day. Again:

The band reformed in 2004 - after 23 years apart - when offered a once-in-a-lifetime chance to support their rock heroes The Magic Band. Davey and the group - Graham and Russell Main and Murray Slade - also opened for the Sun Ra Arkestra, their biggest music influences, during last month's Triptych Festival.

But the reunion has lasted longer than their original career and now Davey has decided to kill off the group.

So... a Win reunion next, then, is it?
