Same. Kennywood's building a new rollercoaster. They took out The Turnpike for it.

Roddy's solo career is much more satisfying than anything Idlewild has done.

Oh nice man. I was at Duquesne last year, but it got to be too much money so now I'm at CCAC. Do you go to Pitt Greensburg?

I have some friends at Penn State Main. Great school. CCAC's okay, but I miss Duquesne. Shame how much money school is.

Cam beat me to the comment.

My bet is that Robin the pianotuna has currently kidnapped the band members & is attempting to talk them out of this "hiatus".

seems me and robin are the only two on sputnik who give a rat's ass about this band. i'm quite frankly distraught.... although i'm glad i got to see them at godiva festival in coventry last year. they only played a couple off the new album, but it was an AWESOME set.

time i checked out rod and roddy's solo stuff then!

I didn't go to the London show the other night cause I just assumed they'd still be around for years for me to go and see.

I'm going to go and cry now

Phew, read this guys:

Hello everyone,

So there's been a bit of speculation flying about regarding Roddy's latest tour diary. The current situation is that we're working on our plans for the rest of the year, when these become more definite we'll be announcing them. What's certain is that there will be no more UK tours in support of 'Post Electric Blues' and there'll be a significant break/hiatus/rest before we'll begin writing another Idlewild record.

Thanks

Gareth
