It was almost two weeks ago that the incredible Dirty Pretty Things split. I'm still in tatters. Their sophomore (and now final *cries*) album, Romance At Short Notice only came out a few short months ago. I can't believe I never got the chance to see them live! just makes me too sad.
NME.com had this to say -
Dirty Pretty Things have split up.
In an exclusive statement to NME.COM the four piece – Carl Barat, Didz Hammond, Gary Powell and Anthony Rossomando – announced the break-up of the band that formed in 2005 following the split of The Libertines.
Frontman Carl Barat explained that the members of the band would be pursuing new musical projects, but that these would not involve The Libertines.
"It is with some sadness we announce the farewell of the Dirty Pretty Things," the statement read. "It's been a glorious three years which we all would gladly live out again, but it is time for us to try new things (not The Libertines).
"We are reluctant to give up touring but will give the last waltz everything. We have and are determined to go out as we came in, after which we all have other ventures to be getting on with and splendid future plans.
