There’s some good news and some bad news about Baby Sweetcorn. Let’s start with the good news:
“The first four sold out recordings, namely Coming Up As the Night Comes Down, Rosary Principle EP, Small Hour Drama b/w Heart of Gold and There and Not Dare can now be downloaded from http://www.mediafire.com/babysweetcorn for free”
This is also a note to self. I need to go and download the first two because I don’t have them and probably have not even heard them. I can fully recommend Small Hour Drama and There and Not Dare. They are really great little records.
Then moving on to the bad news:
“It’s now ten years since Baby Sweetcorn’s inception and as some of you might have noticed we’ve been more or less inactive for the last year and a half. That said, now is as good a time as any to aknowledge and announce that Baby Sweetcorn has retired indefinitely. As always, the future is uncertain. For now, we’ll be pursuing other dreams. Thanks to everyone we’ve met along the way. Be seeing you.”
Ten years is a long journey for an indie band (or any band for that matter), but it’s always a bit sad to see a great band drift into retirement. Hopefully they one day decide to return, but even if they don’t, they can feel good about what they achieved. They’ve certainly left their mark to the finnish music scene. That mark might not be a big glamorous sign that everyone will notice, but a small symbol crafted with love and care is often more meaningful. Baby Sweetcorn wrote that symbol also to my heart with the excellent releases Small Hour Drama, There and Not Dare and Ghosts and Sunsets. Stylewise these three releases were a perfect match with my heart. Thank you Baby Sweetcorn and good luck with pursuing other dreams.
