Lo-fi, post-punk pioneers Life Without Buildings have announced that they are to split. In a statement put up on their website, lifewithoutbuildings.com, on September 25, they made the following announcement:
"Some of you may have guessed this already by the lack of activity on our website and elsewhere, but we feel we should make it official and announce that Life Without Buildings is no longer a band. We want to say how much we appreciate all the support that's been given to us over the past couple of years - thank you; it's been a lot of fun. For the moment the website will stay up, and we'll use it to keep you up to date with any future developments that might interest you. None of us have any intention to stop making music and it's likely that members of the band will keep playing together in some form or other.
"We want to say our most sincere thanks to all the people that have made LWB so enjoyable for us: Andy, Pat and Peter at Chem19, Glen, James, Geoff and all at Tugboat/Rough Trade; Tom at Trifekta; Ryan and Ricky at DC/Baltimore 2012; Dave, Matt and Morro at Handsome Tours; Andreas and Petyr at Puschen; Aereogramme, driver Drew; Panagoitis, Makis, Chris and everyone we met in Athens; Gersey, 99, Art of Fighting, and everyone we met in Australia; the Gooner and all of you who liked our music and told us so.
"Thanks a million - and, you know, keep on rocking.
"LWB - Chris, Robert, Sue, Will."
