After 10 years in the making, Rob Swire has announced that his musical prodigy Pendulum is to be no more. No need to worry though. He’ll be putting all of his efforts into Knife Party so i’m not complaining. I never got the privilege of seeing Pendulum live, but from what I hear it was one of the most energetic sets around the EDM sphere. Their DJ set at Nocturnal 2011 was wild enough, so I can only imagine what goes on during one of their live sets.
In Rob’s words:
“The Knife Party thing is going so well we don’t really feel like going back to junior school anytime soon”, Swire told triple j’s Linda Marigliano. “I guess we’d been doing Pendulum for ten years and that’s a pretty long time to be doing anything, I guess. We were still playing tracks like Blood Sugar that we made when we were 18 or 19. To still be doing that 10 years later, it just felt like time to do something else.”
So to help commemorate this sad day, we’ve gone ahead and compiled some of our favorite Pendulum tracks. Listen below, and make sure to share the love over at Pendulum’s Facebook page.
