Black Box Recorder Issue "Final Statement"
The Quietus , April 15th, 2010 13:38

Last release on election day

Debonair purveyors of cutting, darkly humourous social commentary Black Box Recorder have issued a final statement, and details of a final release on the day of the General Election. Quoting Enoch Powell ("all political careers end in failure") Nanny McPhee and Frank Butcher, Black Box Recorder reveal that they'll be putting out 'Do You Believe In God?' and 'Keep It In The Family'

The communique promises that "all proceeds will go to the members of Black Box Recorder and their families" and concludes "There will be "no interviews. No further statements. The end". No doubt what looks like a retirement is coming about so that John Moore can focus on his new career as a Quietus columnist.
