  • Word up. After six years of running the site in our free time, we've decided to call it a day before updates drop to the level of frequency you'd associate with a king penguin's breeding cycle.

    The original motive for creating Spannered was to keep available content from our previous projects, Overload Media and Musicalbear, and that'll stay accessible right here, along with all the great audio, features and reviews we've gathered up since launching in 2006.

    We'd like to extend a huge thanks to everyone who's written for Spannered over the years, the many artists who've let us host their mixes, live sets and exclusive tracks, all the spammers who have given us hearty belly laughs by letting us bait them, and of course, everyone who's bothered reading and listening to the weird, wonderful and occasionally banal stuff with which we've filled these pages.

    Just before closing up shop we had a flurry of fine mixes drop into our inbox, so be sure to head across to our radio section to check them out.

    We'll be continuing to use our Twitter account for occasional outbursts of enthusiasm and sarcasm. Head over there and befriend us if you like.

    Cheerio :)
