And Darkness Fell Upon The Land

Well, that ruins my week.
The White Stripes have announced they have split up, saying they will "make no further new recordings or perform live".

The Detroit duo of Jack and Meg White thanked fans for their support in a statement on their website.

They added that they were calling it a day for a "myriad of reasons, but mostly to preserve what is beautiful and special about the band."

No, Jack and Meg. It is I, who thanks you. Music had never been this good before, and never will be again.

It is too bad -- for me, they were the best act of the last decade, by a pretty significant margin.

my musical narrow mindedness aside... i cant think of another one since the 70's that could match it.

Look on the bright side: it's better to move on to other things while you're still kicking ass, than stay together too long and record Load.
