Re: Hiatus/Sabbatical/Pause/Intermission/Breather

Hey - all good things must come to an end. I really thought the band was done after Mary died; then after Marginal Eclipse, but they cranked out 2 more records. It's really dificult for a band to maintain such good quality after 18 years; it just has not been done. This band did things that few bands have done; other than say REM, Cure, Rush, U2, and Cocteau Twins; put out solid record after solid record. I guess the real tough spot for me is how much better they had become live. It's just hard to imagine Tim w/ another singer; this duo of the 2 is so unique. I'd say the best guitar/female singer duo since C. Twins.

I think the quality has been good after 18 years. And no matter what they do in the future, I think it will be quality work. I just hope the combined efforts will happen again, as it's a magical formula and we love it.

Just heared the bad news. Well, everything has been said in the other posts, so the only thing left is to wait for their comeback. Thanks, thanks, thanks and thanks for every song.

Goodness

gracious - I look away for a minute and look what happens!

Well I am very sorry to hear it but I do understand - people need a change sometimes and I think some great groups such as the Beatles and Led Zeppelin could have kept going if they had had periodic sabbaticals rather than being forced to stay on the treadmill.

I am really pleased to see the break being framed as temporary rather than permanent. The core members of the groop work together so well that it would be a same if they didn't work together again.

Laura and I had a beautiful baby boy, James Augustus Darling on 21 January - yesterday was his third month birthday. He is utterly gorgeous and it has all worked out really well. Some pictures of him are on my Facebook site.

best to all
