I am sure that this will go under the radar on here but if anyone is interested: The Beautiful South have split today after nearly 18 years together. They started out in 1989 after the break-up of the Housemartins. One of Hulls most famous exports The Beautiful South have been one of the most understated bands in recent times. They created songs about real life that effects real people; affairs, sex, drugs, prostitution etc... If anyone wants to find out about them I am sure in the US you can get some stuff on iTunes. Just download a song from the recent Superbi album and see what you think. Thanks for all the years of great music. EDIT: On the US iTunes Store you can't get Superbi but anything from the other albums is still pretty good.
