London indie band LES INCOMPETENTS have split, complaining the band is too big to manage. The six-piece confirmed rumours they were to disband on an internet blog, despite the fact lead singer BILLY LEESON is nearly recovered following a violent street attack in London earlier this year (JUN06). Writing on their Myspace.com page, the band says: "The rumours are true... the six of us are no longer going to be playing together. Les Incompetents as Les Incompetents will cease to exist. "By the end of the tour we just realised that there were too many ideas between the six of us to try and hone in to one thing. Meaning that whatever we ended up producing, certain people would be unhappy." The band adds several members are already preparing to form new groups.
