Black Grape take a Break

By shane

Looks like things are officially heading to an end for the trouble-plagued BLACK GRAPE. As you'll remember, founders Shaun Ryder and Kermit got into a row around New Year's, causing Kermit to leave the band for an indefinite time period. Now NME is reporting today that Shaun Ryder has officially announced that the band is on indefinite hiatus in order for Ryder to pursue a film career. Ryder, who has a supporting role in this summer's "The Avengers," will produce and direct a movie he's calling "'Trainspotting' meets 'Full Monty' meets 'Goodfellas' meets Manchester." We'll stay tuned.
