Don't you hate it when you find out about a band, buy their album, really like it,
then find out they only made 1 CD before splitting up?? It sucks, man. Like, totally.
My prime examples at the moment:
Rosie and the Goldbug.
who: an alt-pop-ish, electro-rock-ish trio, once described as
'Kate Bush on crack with goldfrapp on synths.'
reason for split: unknown... all we were left with was a post on myspace in august last year saying
'Rosie and the Goldbug are over.'
hmm... weirdness.. and they never went into detail.
however Rosie has announced a new project starting out, Ruby Vamp.
I wonder what they come up with....
who: indie rock band, with lots of electronic-y influence
reason for split: all 'gone off to do different things.'
they split after Glastonbury last year, which was their last gig.
I found this band randomly, I think when just browsing itunes, bought a couple of songs,
then bought their debut album, 'Control' cheap off amazon... I really love it, so when I found out they'd
disbanded I was pretty gutted :(
In other news, I saw an amazing play, all about Antonin Artaud, the frenchman who came up with the concept of the theatre of cruelty. It was a monologue, and also performed by the man who wrote it, from a theatre company called Periplum. Creepy, insane, and very very interesting - watching a madman die has never been so disturbingly absorbing.
