Earlier this month Guincho cancelled all his U.S. shows and went back to Europe for personal reasons -- according to Pitchfork.

"Aw, shucks. We sincerely regret to inform you that Spanish sampledelic dance sensation Pablo "El Guincho" Díaz-Reixa has been forced to cancel a good portion of his world tour due to personal issues. Yes, that includes his appearance at next weekend's Pitchfork Music Festival as well as his string of dates with Atlas Sound. (Atlas Sound will still be playing those shows.)

A post to the Discoteca Océano blog filed on his behalf notes that El Guincho is exhausted from the whirlwind 2008 he's been enjoying and he needs to take some time off. It also says that he hopes to work on new songs and is thinking of incorporating more people into his shows.


Thanks for the update, Kai. Now I'm REALLY bummed I didn't catch him in his earlier NY visit.

    A comedy of social manners for the cubicle age. Nicely plotted even when it dips into the absurd. But I could'a done without the tour-de-force punctuation-less email that ties all loose ends.
