Simply Red to Split Up!

The word that springs to mind on hearing the news is "good".

I'm reminded of the scene at the end of the film 24 Hour Party People when a stoned Tony Wilson is faced with a vision of God (that, inevitably, looks like Tony Wilson) who appraises Wilson's management of Factory Records. After praising him for signing Joy Division, the Durutti Column and the Happy Mondays, God says:

"It's a pity you didn't sign the Smiths, but you were right about Mick Hucknell. His music's rubbish, and he's a ginger. "

Simply Red, U2, Scissor Sisters, Dexies Midnight Runners.

Do I need to declare my views?

How can Simply Red split up? Has someone Damien Hirsted Mick Hucknall?

What's wrong with being a ginger BTW?

There is nothing wrong with being ginger per se; however, if you are a ginger male, it is a sin to have a ginger perm tied back in a pony tail formation pulling your hair back and exposing your chubby, completely punchable face to the nation.

I just can't believe we have to wait until 2009 for them to split up. It's not fair! I want them to split up now.

I thought they'd all been killed?

No wait, that was Dawn Of The Dead
