Ian Haug: “Powderfinger Will Never Reform”

Written by Kiel Egging on September 15, 2012

As they’ve emphasised several times, Powderfinger have no intensions of performing together ever again.

And the band’s ex-guitarist Ian Haug re-confirmed that stance at BIGSOUND in Brisbane this week, telling punters at his keynote panel that the band will “never do a Farnsie” and reform.

theMusic.com.au reports that while at the panel, which was hosted by Courier Mail‘s Noel Mengel, Haug touched on several issues surrounding the band and his own personal future.┬áRead the full report here.

Haug was the only member of Powderfinger who didn’t want the band to split up, and he would have preferred they took a long break (eg: go into “indefinite hibernation” like their 2007 tour buddies Silverchair) instead of ending things completely.

However, he said that he was glad the band ended things the way they did instead of coming to blows, and that he’s enjoyed having a massive chunk of time off.

And, it looks like we’ll be hearing some new music from him soon.┬áResponding to an audience question, Haug said he has booked a gig for his other band The Predators later this year, and they will be releasing┬ámusic early 2013. The Predators also contains Haug’s former Powderfinger bandmate and bass player John Collins.

Powderfinger split in 2010 following the release of their seventh album Golden Rule, and a three-month farewell tour that saw them play to over 300,000 people across the country.

Here at Music Feeds, we thought we’d revisit that moment, when it all ended for Powderfinger as they played their final song – These Days – at the final show at the Riverstage in Brisbane in November 2010. Oh, and keep an eye out for the guy who pats Haugy on the back and gets his guitar pick at 7.15. (wink wink, nudge nudge).
