Silver Jews Disband

The Silver Jews have officially split up, according to statements on the band’s bulletin board. David Berman looks like he might move into screenwriting, so all is not lost.

PM was very lucky to have seen them twice in their relatively short performing career, both at festivals playing excellent sets. The thrill of hearing Smith & Jones Forever live is a real and visceral one, surprisingly butch and swaggering. Here are some videos to console you (more me, really…).

RIP Joos.
