Bullet Union - London-based punks much loved by many a DiS writer, this one not excepted - have called it quits after four years as a band.
The quartet announced their separation via a MySpace bulletin, details below...
After nearly four years, four tours, one hundred shows in a year, full-time jobs, a blue van called Billy, one LP and a seven-inch, a pet panda, some really good dancing, and some really good times... Bullet Union are calling it a day. Thank you to everybody that has been involved in this band in any way especially those that put our records out, recorded us, put on shows for us, let us play shows, made ace flyers, bought us pizza, drove us in the sun and rain (Bradley, Flying Frida, Tule, Sam and Val we love you!), lent us equpiment, designed us a website, bought a pink t-shirt, shared a stage with us and let us share a stage with them, stole a pink t-shirt, got drunk with us, let us sleep on their floors, play with their cats, and asked us to go on tour with them.
Thanks to everyone who has been involved in one way or another, you made doing this so much for fun for us and we are forever grateful.
A slideshow featuring pictures of Bullet Union 'field trips' can be seen here, and if anyone has new photographs they wish to send the band, they can do so to firstname.lastname@example.org. Jealous Records has taken fresh stock of the band's much-recommended LP, Ruin's Domino (reviewed here), and their ace-o-rama seven-inch. So buy 'em if you've not got 'em already (if you have they're probably worn out, so buy them again).
On a personal note, I'd just like to say thanks to Robin, Jodie, Paul and Kaoru for some genuinely amazing performances these last few years. There are very few bands that can move me to dance - very few - but Bullet Union always managed it, and I will miss them. DiS as a whole wishes each member the best for their musical future.
