After two albums, the first of which spawned the inescapable hit "Feed the
Tree," the second, King , which seemed to disappear without a trace,
Belly have called it quits. According to a source familiar with the situation,
the band, fronted by former Throwing Muses/Breeders member Tanya Donelly,
amicably ended their three-year stint last month. Donelly is now hard at work
on her solo debut, for which she has already recorded 17 demos, some of which
feature ex-Pixies drummer David Lovering. The album is not expected to be
released until mid-'97.
