With the year beginning to draw to a close, and with only a bare handful os Sundays left for 2012 Slaylists, this week we’re turning out attention to those we’ve lost in 2012. We’re talking about the bands that have either broken up or gone on hiatus, as well as the more serious subject of musicians who sadly died at some point over the last 12 months.
The first half of this week’s Sunday Spotify Slaylist are bands that fall into those first two categories – bands that either finally decided to call it a day in 2012, or announced that they were entering periods of hiatus for as-yet-unknown lengths of time. The second half this week’s Slaylist is dedicated to bands from which a current (or in some cases, former) member has died during 2012. Remember, boys and girls, ain’t none of us get to choose when we go, so make the most of the time you’ve got and for pity’s sake don’t go wasting it listening to bad music.
Spotify is available to most of Western Europe, the USA, Australia, New Zealand, and a few other places for free – though obviously you’re better off shelling out either £5 or £10 a month for one of Spotify’s premium packages, as then you can listen to our Slaylists without having them interrupted by adverts. For our readers in countries not currently serviced by Spotify….well, I’m sure you’ll find time to celebrate the music of these bands in some other way.
