I wanted the world

The Long Blondes are no more. It's sad that their break-up is based upon the guitarist's poor health. Writing on the myspace today:

We have decided to call it a day.

The main reason for this is that I suffered from a stroke in June and unfortunately I do not know when / if I will be well enough to play guitar again.

On behalf of the band I'd like to say a big thank you to anyone who ever came to one of our shows, bought one of our records or danced to one of our songs in a club. Thank you, if it wasn't for you the whole thing would have been pointless.

Finally on a personal note, thanks for all your well wishing messages.

I saw that too. Very sad--he's so young! Hopefully that forebodes a good outcome and eventual return to full abilities.
