Defunct bands I love
I recently discovered the amazing Merchant Ships through the power of last.fm and was simply blown away. Now I'm not a fan of screamo, but I couldn't help but fall in love with these guys, Long Term Relationships being a masterpiece in my eyes, raw emotion, genuine pain, and it shows. But of course the discovery was marred, for they are no more, and although they have gone on to make amazing music in the aftermath it's still just a little sad. I find this with a lot of bands that have split really, so I've decided to share defunct bands that I adore or inspire me on a semi regular basis, starting with these guys.
