Well here’s a distressing thought to go alongside your afternoon tea, Ariel Pink, of Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti fame has broken up “the band” mere days after announcing his latest album, Mature Themes, would arrive on earth via 4AD on the 27th of August. They even teased us with a cover of Donnie and Joe Emerson’s “Baby”, those hope raising gits. Naturally, you should take this news with a heaped serving of salt, it’s probably just a funny, funny joke. But, y’know, this is a man who spent the majority of Coachella 2011 storming off stage, refusing to sing and generally acting like an entitled bitch in front of several hundred adoring fans, so, anything could happen.
Hear Ariel Pink’s cover of Baby below.
