The band split in 1991 after releasing the live album, Alive, Alive-O, a performance recorded at London's Town & Country Club which was later released as a DVD The Shooting by Cherry Red Records. Paul Simmonds and "Swill" Odgers then formed Liberty Cage who released an album, Sleep of the Just, in 1994 and an EP, I'll Keep It With Mine, in 1995. On Thursday 8 October 2009, almost 25 years since The Men They Couldn't Hang played their first proper gig in Camden Town at The Electric Ballroom, they returned for the official 25 Year Anniversary Celebration. 2012 saw the release of an album from Stefan Cush's new band, "the Feral Family" and Paul Simmonds was recording and touring with roots singer Naomi Bedford as well as numerous live dates for TMTCH.

And what better way to celebrate than with the release of a superb brand new studio album The Defiant, which finds them in the rudest of health and benefiting from a hugely successful crowd funding drive. In typical style the band and the songs live up to the title and if the recent show at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire is anything to go by, they have lost none of their infectious energy, as they whipped a heaving, ground floor crowd in a writhing mass of excitement with a proper mosh-pit. Seeing the band live in such raucous form confirmed their potency had not waned

Twilight arrives, the streets come alive The Mayor and the Chief watch it begin A girl on a bike turns very businesslike Leaves fifty grand and a pardon for her sins. Goodbye Billy Morgan Known from Amsterdam to Tripoli You can taste your death in every silent breath Fear the curse, thought the enemy. On Morgan's cheap TV the Ministers agree at the summit In a room straight above there's a couple making love with a cheer Out across the water the statue of Christ throws a shadow It falls across the city to the window of the volunteer.
