Constantines really, really shouldn’t break up. They’re fantastic. They’re great live and on record. They’re intricately intertwining, dynamic and hard hitting guitar lines shouldn’t go away. Their first album and Shine A Light are pretty damn near perfect. Who can deny that Nighttime Anytime is a great song? Who doesn’t love it when it whispers softly and then explodes at the end in a flurry of interlocking instrumentation? The catharsis is unmatched. They’ve done other decent stuff since, but still. Fuck this. They’re the most underrated indie band working today, and they need time to become overrated, or at the very least just rated.
