Simply Red to split up. Mick Hucknell to be shot for being a pompous prick.

Okay, I made the second bit up

But how exactly is that pompous twat going to split Simply Red up?
He is Simply Red. No-one else can stand to be in a room for that lomng with him to actually be in a band.

Mick Hucknell - famously present at the Sex Pistols Lesser Free Trade Hall 1976 Manchester gig.

Everyone else present seemed to form groups that radically change the music scene;
Joy Division, Buzzcocks, The Fall, The Smiths.

Mick Hucknell gives us Simply fucking Red.

If we're very lucky, his decision to split up Simply Red means he's decided to leave the music industry. Which would be nice. But only really good if he were also to delete his entire catalogue of work.

(and breathe.......)
