You Are Very *

Shelley has told me that The Rheostatics have broken up. I can't say I'm shocked by the news; saddened yes, but eternally grateful for their ground-breaking contributions to the Canadian soundscape.

"After much consternation, it has been resolved that the group's March 30th, 2007 date at Massey Hall will be the last live performance for the group as they have existed for the last two-plus decades."

It's been a wonderful, melodic run; perhaps I'll see those troubadours from Etobicoke on their fateful final night?
