Shut up, Bobby Lee. It's no real pleasure in life

MP3: Stand

Gowns have split up.

They were an odd, intense, dark band with some truly thrilling songs. More than a little nihilistic, seemingly a bit dysfunctional in general, and pretty fuckin' emo truth be told, but at full tilt, able to set yr body alight with adrenalin. Beautiful, really, like a Velvet Underground for the 00's (in European Son mode, that is).

They left a goodbye of sorts and a final new track on their blog, and, of course, have already embarked on other projects.

The amazing "White Like Heaven" appeared on a Brainlove podcast, here.
