On Vox: How long's a tear take to dry?


Song For Whoever
The Beautiful South
Harold has brought to my attention that The Beautiful South have split up. This makes me so very sad. Such an awesome band, and when we saw them a few months ago at the Fillmore, they seemed to be running at full speed. Their new album is incredible, and that show was like a religious experience.

I feel like I just got punched in the gut. I can take comfort in the fact that The Beautiful South were born out of another great band, The Housemartins, so perhaps Paul will go on to bring us something else wonderful in the future.

PS: How could this have happened five days ago and I didn't know until today? Where were you on this one, DJChall.com?

Hmm... I don't recall them ever calling it quits before. They've changed lineups a lot... Hopefully you're right, though!

they had just split up when i visited london in 1997(?), maybe that was '98? they had split up once before that, i think, too.
