i already miss the Constantines

There's a gaping hole in Canada's music scene. Yesterday on a CBC Radio 3 morning show Constantines frontman Bryan Webb dropped some hints that he and his band were thinking about calling it quits. Today what he said was confirmed. And just like that, my favourite Canadian band is no more. Over the past decade the Constantines released four great albums (though, over the past year  I've listened to their self-titled debut more than almost anything else). I wrote extensively on Shine a Light for my "best of the 2000s series" and was lucky enough to get an interview with Webb a year and a half ago. Here's a video for one of their most celebrated songs off Shine a Light.
