With an influx of refoming bands playing in 2008, who else would you like to see reform to play live again?
:( they ended so soon
are playing quite a bit these days
I think. All bands mentioned have already reformed. Though I don't really understand why one of Interpol has left and gone back to Shed 7. ;-)
I would like to see The Verve, Led Zep and Crowded House reform though.
(somebody stop me)
reformation, maybe The Pixies.
how did i miss that?!?!
Next on my hope list is b*witched.
reformed, then they could they could have Rollercoaster 2.0.
Hot Snakes and Drive Like Jehu
fugazi havnt actually split though have they? i think they are on "hiatus"
id love to see the original line-up helmet play, and im always gutted i never saw at the drive in (*bound to feature heavily in this thread)
otherwise id like elliott smith to reform and do a solo so with heatmiser supporting, and maybe nick drake and jeff buckley could reform too.
but I would like them to play some gigs and make some albums because they are the best band of all time
and RFTC, obv. But the new John Reis project will combine elements of everything he's ever done, so in a way it will kinda be like they are all back.....ish.
never actually got to see them
Desaparecidos would be good too
It's not like any of them have anyhting better t d.
I have cold fingers.
would be epic
even though it would completely blow, I mean can you imagine them all playing together and being civil?
(although I would really like to see Sunny day Real Estate, thanks...)
Also maybe Texas Is The Reason and Braid.
Because 95% of Ed Harcourt's solo stuff is crap. Snug were ace though.
I reckon D.B. could still cut it. I just would love to dance my arse off at a gig, then my life would be complete!
really good versions of TH songs at his solo gigs and totally doesn't suck. go see him.
would be pretty mega.
Its pretty good that morrissey is making loadsa money from his mediocre-of-late solo career, otherwise he'd be jumping on the "smiths reunion" bus in no time. A reformed smiths would be terrible. I would love to think an ATDI reunion would work, but it probably wouldnt ever work, despite there being a 0.00000001% of it actually happening.
The Smiths are one of those bands who's music worked so well because of the sound at the time. The reverbing drums and vocals (which I can't usually stand) etc. It would be so horrible, nowadays.
That said, it can't possibly be worse than Morrissey's solo career. My brother had it on in his car on the way home from Leeds one night, and all the songs were so skin-crawlingly boring, and the LYRICS just seemed the same:
"Everyone thinks I'm nasty and horrible, but I don't care because I'm fine. You weren't very nice to me."
The current musical climate is perfect for them. Contemporary music doesn't have REALLY LOUD drums and FACE MELTING guitars all over it, but when they reformed in the midlate 70s, and in the early 90s for the Dylan thing, it did.
Crosby, Hillman and McGuinn would be amazing. If they did the stuff after Crosby had left, too, it'd be ace. They all seem like really likeable people, too. Such a shame my favourite Byrd isn't still here.
go see the byrds.
Seem like likeable people?!!! are you mad! If they were likeable people they wouldn't have excluded your favourite Byrd from the reunion tracks they recorded in 89/90, and they wouldn't have re-jigged the writing credits on Eight Miles High (which was pretty much entirely his song apart from one line and the guitar solo) so his name appeared last! Nice way to treat the memory of an ex partner.
A Byrds reunion minus Gene Clark isn't worth shit.
Their horribleness to Clark is awful, I admit. Apparently, just after Clark died, McGuinn released his book saying he'd written it all himself, which is like shouting insults from a car window.
You never know what he was like though do you? Maybe he was a dickhead in the early dayz.
Still, I can't think of anything better than to see them at Glastonbury or something. It'd be ace. Obviously, minus Clark's deep voice on the early song harmonies, it would be really crap. But the later stuff would be amaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaazin
maybe the line up with the horse instead of crosby would be best.
I love Crosby.
Just to tarnish their perfection ever-so-slightly (would totally go to see them though).
Or Company Flow, same deal (although the might be already...? Heard rumours at least).
Seriously, though cLOUDDEAD. They've actually got unfinished business ideas-wise, I reckon.
had a mini-reunion at ATP in May and there was NO MENTION OF IT in any review I read
they're all openly still friends?
Everyone likes a bit of drama, I guess.
I would love to see LWB reform, but most of all i want Les Georges Leningrad back! And The Coachwhips!
Id love to see the Velvets reform, but is impossible, ATDI could still play an awsome 'one off' *and then announce an extra date at the same venue* that would work,
gimme a vast array of 90's noise bands
Seeing the Lizard would be high on my list of things i'd cut off my nuts for.
reformed in the mid nineties, for cash. Read something the other day, Lou Reed was happy to do it cos Stirling Moss and Joe Tucker or whatevertherenameswere didnt make any cash first time around.
to see a reformed Talking Heads
but since im being a hyprocrit and going to both jesus and mary chain & my bloody valentine, why not
At the drive-in
death cab for cutie
Three Mile Pilot (apparently a new album on touch & go is scheduled for next year)
another band that i would love to reform but they could never reform are surgery (anphetamine reptile)their amazing singer is dead.
i'm probably the only one that knows them but i love them
i think shimmer was a great album
i know surgery...on the subject of amrep id love to see the cows play live. the melvins have stolen their bassist now.
chaos ad sepultura
to Chaos AD Sepultura
Most decent thrash bands from that era have already reformed
has a solo project and he's releasing an album. i saw him live in a small club doing acoustic stuff.
or Make up or for carnation.Braniac would be ace but the singer died
Rodan were ace!
not for me...they were proper horror show.
larrikin love that is.
i think the correct answer is THE SPIDERS FROM MARS
Because Mick Ronson's been dead almost 15 years...
I want another album by that band so badly.
team via time travel please.
I'll go for The Telescopes circa Taste.
then only Cable.
Pavement I sort of want but it wont be as good so sort of dont want as well.
have I missed something
Neutral Milk Hotel - bit iffy on that one though, doubt it would lead to another Aeroplane..
if NMH just did a few gigs. a 'Don't Look Back' would be nice. Though it would sell out in a negative amount of time.
The Murder of Rosa Luxemburg
Limp Bizkit (don't judge me, surely I can't be the only one who would be interested?)
There's probably loads more but these are the first that came to mind.
jazz man and babylon zoo?
but they sounded nothing like BZ. The drummer Terry Kirkbride now manages Hundred Reasons among others, and is still doing session work, most recently filling the drumstool on Oasis' 'Lord Don't Slow Me Down' single
pat fish, the man who got spacemen 3 signed asked me who drummed on that record (he reckoned it sounded like it'd been done in a lift), i responded with zac starkey?
gonna say Slowdive. As well as RFTC and Man or Astroman?.
definatly..come its the thing to do these days,
only split up recently! Let the dust settle a bit.
or are they already back? that must be why no one mentioned them.
