Hot on the heels of the announcements that Agent Blue and yourcodenameis:milo have both decided to call it a day comes the news that two more DiS favourites of recent times have also packed it in.
London progressive rock experimentalists twentysixfeet - whose Two Hours Of Passionless Tango album is admired by several DiS writers; they also played our March DiScover Club - are no more. The band posted this on their MySpace blog:
This just a short one to say that we're splitting up.
There's no defining reason and it’s not in any way acrimonious; it's just run its course.
We'd like to thank everyone who has played any part in our shenanigans over the years and wish you all the best.
Catch you in the future and all that crap.
E, M, D, B, and A
Meanwhile, Leicester five-piece redcarsgofaster (pictured) have also announced they're splitting. Their final show will be at the Charlotte in their hometown on Saturday September 8th, with support from Rotary Ten and Tired Irie.
There will also be a posthumous album featuring nine recordings both old and new, including three previously unreleased songs. The record will be available at the gig or via the band's MySpace here.
The full tracklisting is as follows:
'Demagogues' (previously unreleased)
'Open/shut' (compilation version)
'House of Flies' (High Voltage 7")
'I Am The Storm' (High Voltage 7")
'The Punchline' (previously unreleased)
'Neurath's Figure' (new recording of an old demo)
'The Pragmatists' (new recording; old demo was on a Dance To The Radio compilation)
'24 Passes' (High Voltage 7")
'Hammer Into Anvil' (previously unreleased)
Guitarist Matt Bolton has written a very poignant epitaph here, which explains the band's reasons for calling it a day.
