Some Taint news for you.
As the three of us prepare to move in to new phases of our lives, we've agreed that carrying Taint with us would cease to work any longer. So, with love and respect for each other as long-time brothers in this band, we're bowing out. We are proud to walk away, knowing that without compromise Taint has stood as the best and most unique band that the three of us could make it be.
We'd like to thank our ex-members Darren Mason and Stophe Thomas, all of our fans for their support, and all our friends old and new who've helped us along the way. We know who you are, and we love you.
To sign off, we're playing our last two shows in South Wales this autumn/winter:
Taint curates Oxjam in Clwb Ifor Bach, Cardiff. Joined by a stellar lineup of Wales' finest bands: Shaped By Fate, The Death Of Her Money, Sigiriya and Zonderhoof.
This is a charity event for Oxfam International.
Taint plus Sigiriya, The Groundnuts And Independents and 33. At Sin City, Swansea.
We'll have a new batch of 'Heart Roots' t-shirts for sale at these shows, and for any future mail order inquiries. We'll continue checking in on our Myspace, website and Twitter to add any future Taint related news and activities.
For now however, eternal love and gratitude.
Al, Chris and Jimbob.
Taint, 1994 - 2010.
