David Berman has popped up on Drag City's message board, declaring the death of his longtime band Silver Jews. In his initial post, he said the group's January 31 show in McMinnville, TN, will be their last, and added, "I guess I am moving over to another category. Screenwriting or muckraking. I've got to move on. Can't be like all the careerists doncha know. I'm 42 and I know what to do. I'm a writer, see?"
He continued, "I always said we would stop before we got bad. If I continue to record I might accidentally write the answer song to 'Shiny Happy People'."
In a separate post, Berman lashed out at his father, Richard Berman, saying, "My father is a despicable man. My father is a sort of human molester. An exploiter. A scoundrel. A world historical motherfucking son of a bitch.
He then made sure to write, "Sorry grandma."
