In a statement posted on their website, singer Andy Falkous said:
“The three piece rock band known as mclusky have disbanded, as of friday january 7th, 2005.
The reason for this parting is private, though probably not as entertaining as you'd imagine.
Personally, I would like to thank all the people, places and times that occured on or near us.
I`m grateful for the love and to to a lesser degree, the hate. There'll be more music soon, from all of us. “
And that, sadly, is pretty much it. .
