Cult Scottish rockers The Delgados have split after a decade and five
In a statement on their website at the weekend (09APR05), the group claims
the recent departure of bass player STEWART HENDERSON left them unable to
continue and the remaining members of the group will pursue solo careers.
In a statement, the group says, "The Delgados have always been known as
uniquely collaborative songwriters and, as such, it was decided that the band
could not continue without all of its original members."
The statement followed one posted by Henderson the day before, in which he
wrote, "Physically, emotionally and financially I found it increasingly
difficult to pour so much of my energy and time into something that never quite
seemed to get the
attention or respect I felt it deserved."
