Cooper Temple Clause Split

by | 25 April 2007

Berkshire-based band the Cooper Temple Clause have announced that they are splitting up after guitarist Dan Fisher said he was quitting the group.

After the guitarist's decision, the rest of the band decided to all it a day and pursue other interests.

Speculation had been rife that a split may have been on the horizon following the band's decision to cancel gigs at the Camden Crawl and a headline slot at the Koko in north London last week.

Representatives of the Cooper Temple Clause had said that the cancellations were owing to mental and physical exhaustion.

In a message to fans of the band, Fisher said: "We would like to take this moment to thank all of you for your support over the years and the love and acceptance you have shown us.

"It has been an honour to be your servants, for that is what we have been.

"A band is nothing without its fans, without the people who come to the shows, buy the albums and make us feel that we're not alone in the world, that there are other people out there who see the world as we do in all its wonder and absurdity."

The band suffered a setback in the autumn of 2005 when the popular bassist Didz Hammond announced he was quitting to join Carl Barat's Dirty Pretty Things.

Hammond then went on to enjoy a top ten album with his new band, while the Cooper Temple Clause struggled to gain any kind of recognition for their new album Make This your Own.

The band released three albums during their time together: See This Through and Leave, Kick Up the Fire and Let the Flames Break Loose and Make This Your Own.
