Got back to a pile of email this afternoon - a week is a long time on the Ubuntu mailing lists it seems, and I'm too lazy to switch off delivery while I'm away. But buried within all the messages was this press release from the Delgados:

The Delgados, influential figures in Glasgow's independent music scene for over 10 years, have announced that they are to amicably disband. The reason has been put down to the departure of their bass player Stewart Henderson who informed the band in the New Year that he did not wish to make another album. The Delgados have always been known as uniquely collaborative songwriters and as such, it was decided that the band could not continue without all of its original members.

Sad news - glad I got to see them perform on the last tour, despite it being a turbulent and strange night for me. I'll miss the Delgados, but I can't wait to see what Emma and Alun come up with next.

I've had a home on the web for more years than I care to remember, and a few kind souls persuade me it's worth persisting with keeping it updated. This current incarnation of the site is centred around the blog posts which began back in 1999 as 'the daylog' and continued through my travels and tribulations during the following years.

I don't get out and about nearly as much these days, but I do try to record significant events and trips for posterity. You may also have arrived here by following the trail to my former music blog Songs Heard On Fast Trains. That content is preserved here too.
