It seems that we’ll have to make do with that fantastic EP “The Recordings Of the Middle East” and debut album “I Want That You Will Always Be Happy” when it comes to Australian band The Middle East, a big favourite of this blog. Via their Facebook page, the band say they’re “ceasing” due to “a whole lot of reasons that I won’t list here”. They played their last show at the Splendour in the Grass festival in Queensland at the weekend. The band were one of the big wows at SXSW 2010 and played two Irish shows that year at Dublin’s Sugar Club and Oxegen.
