Breaking: Wolfmother to split!

April 1, 2008 by  


I’m just getting the most awful news possible, that our beloved band are to split up! The news is that Myles and Andrew had a fight in a Brisbane bar last week, apparently sparked by Myles’ revelation that he was going to grow his hair into an afro. Eye witnesses say that Andrew totally flipped and smacked him across the face, prompting Myles to pull a drumstick from his pocket and try to shove it … well somewhere not very nice.

The band’s management also told me that the new album has been delayed primarily because Chris got seasick from watching Cloverfield and the effects prevented him from completing his cover of Bohemian Rhapsody.

However the album is now complete and will be released next March, entitled “Super Furry Oliphaunts”. It will include just 8 tracks including Pleased to Meet You, Love Attacker, Communication Breakdown, a remix of Woman, a dance version of Bohemian Rhapsody and three whole new tracks.

Make a note of the date, people – this is truly a sad day in history.

    haha well I gave some thought to making it sound extremely real and serious. But I’m too nice a guy to do that to you all, so I deliberately made it obvious.

    Next year … I might not be so kind.

    At first I actually thought it was true. I admit it, I cried. Like a little girl. Then, as I was buying a plane ticket to Brisbane to talk them into getting back together, I realized it was April fool’s day. That was a cruel joke, Chimaera.
