The Music to split up later this year.... A tribute

The Music have announced that they are splitting up after 10 years together.

The Leeds band will part ways after two farewell UK gigs in August.

Writing on their official website they wrote: "After 10 years, three albums and some unforgettable live performances, The Music have announced a series of final shows in England before going their separate ways at the end of this summer."

The band's farewell shows will take place at London's O2 Shepherds' Bush Empire on August 4 and the O2 Academy Leeds on August 5.

They released three albums in their career: 2002's self-titled debut, 2004's 'Welcome To The North' and 2008's 'Strength In Numbers'.

The final two albums came out while I was buried deep in punk rock and reggae, so The Music (being a Leeds-based indie band) weren't on my radar at that time. however I loved the self titled debut album, a record that I used to play many times back in 2002, while working at The West End Inn.....

And these are the tracks I remember most fondly....
