heard on the wire

More soul than Wigan Casino

Fans of the band will already know. I knew some time ago thanks to an insider in the bear nest. One of the finest, most innovative and most exciting bands of the past 10 years is no more.

It’s time to have a rethink.

It’s not The End, it’s not a final implosion of musical differences and drug-fuelled grievances and interfering Japanese spouses. It’s just a big old TIME OUT.

With those words, Bearsuit called time on a brilliant career, one that may never have troubled the charts or the gushing critics, but frankly, who gives a crap when music sounds this good.

Bearsuit :: Hey Charlie, Hey Chuck

Bearsuit :: When Will I Be Queen

Bearsuit :: More Soul Than Wigan Casino

Bearsuit :: Please Don’t Take Him Back

And especially this good.

Bearsuit :: Diagonal Girl

Thanks Bears.
