The double quotes in the title are mine. I’ve added them optimistically in the hope that it’s just Rohin being dramatic…
"…rumours filtered through to the triple j backstage tent that The Middle East were breaking up. When approached, the band’s label stated there was only to be an indefinite ‘break’ and not a ‘break up’"
Here’s the story from Triple J.
Was anyone there for the final performance of The Middle East?
UPDATE: Removed the double quotes :( My take: it is just Rohin being dramatic, but that’s enough… I wonder if the band’s management were taken by surprise.
