It was the kind of splashy performance that could never translate on the road. Their split this week after 28 years many spent not doing much publicly at all was the final shrug from a duo that never cared about the Super Bowl. Humble as it was, there was something pure about the Wee Waa experiment.
In the weeks that followed, Random Access Memories went through the inevitable hype-to-backlash cycle.

It was a sound that placed them quite at odds with contemporaries like The Germs and Screamers. Traditionally dismissed by a derisory media, Sham 69 have been effectively excised from punk history.
