A moment's silence, please, for the news that Jet have called it a day:
After many successful years of writing, recording and touring we wish to announce our discontinuation as a group. From the many pubs, theatres, stadiums and festivals all across the world it was the fans that made our amazing story possible and we wish to thank them all. Thank you, and goodnight.It's fitting that a band who were so clunky and ungainly can't just say "we've split" but instead the tortuous "we wish to announce our discontinuation as a group".
I know what you're thinking: it's a bit like when an actor from Crossroads dies and for a moment you go 'I thought they died years ago'.
