Fragile Porcelain Mice Calls It Quits



Lately, it's felt like every old-school St. Louis band is playing shows again. The Unconscious is performing at the Pageant on Monday, December 28. Pale Divine just announced its second reunion show on Tuesday, December 29. And New World Spirits' reunion show is set for January 16, 2010. But an email from Mark Heinz confirms that another beloved STL act, Fragile Porcelain Mice, are no more. Says the email, which is taken from the band's official website:

First, because of various circumstances, we will not be performing our annual Thanksgiving show this year. This news is a great disappointment to us--not just because we won't be performing, but because we look forward to meeting up and chatting with all of our loyal fans who have celebrated the holiday of turkey and rock with us over the years.

Second, after much discussion we have decided that Fragile Porcelain Mice will no longer continue as a creative entity. This means that FPM will no longer be writing, recording, or performing new material. The door is still open for some shows; however, we have no plans to perform together in the near future.

We hope you understand. We are grateful for all your support throughout the many years. We hope to see you again.

Sincerely, Dave, Mark, Scott, and Tim: Fragile Porcelain Mice
