Wild Flag split up: "It was great but I think it just kinda ran its course"

U.S. supergroup Wild Flag have called it a day, according to drummer Janet Weiss.

The rock four-piece comprising Sleater-Kinney’s Carrie Brownstein, Helium’s Mary Timony, The Minders’ Rebecca Cole and Weiss herself (of both Sleater-Kinney and Quasi) released their eponymous album in 2011 to significant acclaim, but according to Weiss, Wild Flag is no longer a going concern.

“It was great but I think it just kinda ran its course,” she told The Skinny. “It’s hard to have a band when you live five hours apart by plane.”

The new comes as Weiss fires up her long-running (now ex) husband-wife rock duo Quasi for new album Mole City, while Sleater-Kinney fuelled reunion rumours last week when band members appeared on stage together at a Pearl Jam show to perform Neil Young’s ‘Rockin’ In The Free World’.
