This is the first thing to kick my arse into posting in a very long while, but boy is it big news.
One half of your congenial (read: lazy) hosts here went to see Detroit bandwagon-jumpers The Von Bondies at Reading festival.
And very fucking good they were too.
At the signing tent it was noted how gorgeous Marcie is up close and how much Carrie looks...well, like a bloke.
Anyway, during their actual performance it became clear that Marcie was there just to make up the 'pouting, sultry, she-devil' contingent whilst the rest of the band worked their arses off and made a great deal of marvellous noise.
A few days later the news comes about that Carrie (the best female bass player I have ever seen) has, in fact left the band.
