The Noted Regional Comic says he still loves the guys in the group, but that he is ready to move on.
Writes Little in an e-mail, "The group has changed over the years and it's no longer a priority, just something we do on Tuesday. Josh [Martin] has been in and out the last 9 months but mostly out. Chris [Rager] has been out since his accident [in November] and his future involvement is up in the air. We've been holding it together for a long time but i'm just ready to move on. I love everyone in the group but i am done."
But if there's a bright side to the departure, maybe it's that it will give Little time to finally release his third album, Back By Popular Dismay.
After the jump is a track from the album, "Solid," which features the late Carter Albrecht.
Little typically plays a song or two during Section 8 shows, but if you want to hear more of his half-serious, half-funny songs, catch him Saturday atOpening Bell
, where he will perform with Don Cento.
