I just recently listened to an August 12th interview with the Constantines on CBC Radio 3. It sounds like the band is calling it a day. Well at least they are ‘slowing down’ in the words of the lead singer Bry Webb. I could spend hours talking about why I feel terribly sad about this and why I think it might be the right time for the band to call it a day. In the interest of time I won’t, however I will say that I have spent nearly 7 years listening to them and going to their gigs. If the last memories I have of seeing the Constantines live are from SXSW 2008 then that wouldn’t be too bad. I saw the band at least 5 times in those several days in March and even spoke to Bry on the street. Alas, all is not lost. Bry has a new side project called the Harbourcoats who are going to support Dan Mangan in Canada in October.
