Sorry -- I just saw your question in the "Mehchella" thread and I didn't want to bump the whiners.
The band I was referring to was Superchunk. Technically they haven't *really* been on a true hiatus, but I didn't want to mention the one-off shows (Obama rally, Eff Cancer benefit -- the story on that one is soooo sad) because I didn't want to give it away.
There are a group of very knowledgeable and rabid music fans on the board and I figured even referencing the one-offs (or the fact that the band was truly DIY) would give too much of a clue.
So there's your answer.
