The Final Death Knell for Britpop? SHED SEVEN Call It a Day

By shane

One of the final holdout bands from the days of Britpop yore, SHED SEVEN, have decided to split following their current UK tour. The surprise announcement today reveals that these final live dates will be "a celebration, a retrospective, a Shed Seven tour to remember," and stresses that the band's greatest hits catalogue will be showcased alongside "lost gems" not often heard at Shed Seven gigs. Despite nearly continuous critical backlash for their entire career, Shed Seven managed to outlast most of their Britpop contemporaries, and we here at Excellent are a little wistful to see 'em go.
