There are always some music groups that we think should never have broken up.

Such as;

The Smiths

Geneva

Mansun

New Order

Savage Garden

A little-known band from the 1960s that broke up due to some unspecified controversies, The Ministers Quartet:

I believe they were the first of what became known as a "supergroup".

They shouldn't be allowed to touch anyone.

Dan,
Your post reminded me that I should mention another band that broke up long ago.
Adolf and The Hitlers became known around the world with their hit single, I Wanna
Hold Your Land in 1939 but the band broke up in the mid 1940s due to the ego frictions
among members.

I wonder if there were similar frictions that broke up The Ministers Quartet? "


Could be...maybe the root of the controversy was the question of who will touch him and who won't.


With apologies to Kathy Becket

Another rock group that didn't last long was The Brain Strokes, who
released a single titled Last Nite I Had A Near-Fatal Brain Injury in 2001
but mysteriously vanished afterwards.

Oh no ... It's the Germans!
Should they really want to look like Kiss on a particularly bad day?

The Glorious Scandinavian stars!...or more like a bad hair day for sissy-like Vikings.

Great Turkish horror and silliness.
Yes, keep it as unreal as possible.
