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.I'll miss 'em. Here's their best jam.
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.
