Mark Radcliffe takes a wry look at bands breaking up and the impact from the fall out.

It is always inevitable that all bands will eventually disband. A few like the Rolling Stones and The Who still go on and on like the Duracell bunny.

I rather enjoyed the insights to The Smiths wit Morrissey's erratic behaviour meant that Johnny Marr, an important creative force in the band decided enough was enough. Morrissey since then has been reduced to make some dicey comments on race and nationality because lets face it the songs without Marr's input have not been that good.

Pink Floyd are still going with Dave Gilmour at the creative helm but when Roger Waters left he wanted to disband the band and claimed the copyright on the pig which became a mascot for the band. Gilmour modified the pig by giving it testicles.

New Order apparently broke up a few years ago when Pete Hook walked out of the band. The rest of the band had a different opinion and carried on. Hook thinks he is entitled to 25% of the band and still upset about the situation.

Some bands get together. After 10 years apart Take That got back together and a few years later even roped Robbie Williams back.

Usually it is money, a big incentive to reuniting artists. As was the case with The Police and The Eagles, with certain members of the band apparently taking a bigger cut than the others.

Some bands will never get back together like Abba or The Beatles. They are over and done.

The programme was informative and enjoyable enough with Radcliffe's humour being an important part of it.
