Fair play to them; they've had their success and can probably see that with the tweenies fave Wand Erection taking over the charts that it's probably time to bow out. Never rated their music but they seem like nice lads who've genuinely enjoyed themselves.
Agreed. Kiddy bands have a short shelf life and they've had theirs. They had a good run and did very well and it's probably better to bow out now with dignity rather than continue to flog a dying horse.
Though I do think they're talented lads, their material never lived up to what I thought they were capable of but I suppose selling out for success is the price you pay when you go into the pop industry.
Good luck to them whatever they do in the future.
