Seems like everyone is getting back together these days, whether for money or a shot at career closure; some are actually reinvigorated and creating viable new music. So if you are pining the loss or lethargy of a favorite band or artist, there’s hope.
(Of course, nothing would be better than the three guys in the forefront of this picture sharing a stage again. Maybe if I leave that tooth under my pillow…)
Doesn’t have to be someone on a Van Halen level. For example, Fastball thought they had taken a long enough hiatus and decided to regroup – the result was a great new record. So why not our favorites?
So here’s ten acts right off the top of my head that are dormant; I wish they were making records right now. At least I have the fruits of their labor to date to savor over and over again. If any of these are new to you, please check them out. Maybe it will make you revive a few of your own favorites.
Because that’s the beauty of legacy. It’s right there.
Redd Kross: Congrats on the new baby and all, but come on – make an album!
Cotton Mather: Living on in other bands, but Kon Tiki is godhead.
The Pursuit of Happiness: Too good to be satisfied with reunions.
The Tories: So promising. So good. What happened?
Liquor Giants: How about Something Special for the Adults?
World Party: This generation’s Klaatu, the homage must go on.
Jen Trynin: Disillusioned the first time, suck it up and get back out there.
Love Nut: Andy Bopp, put Myracle Brah aside and rock me again.
Tonio K: I know you’re sitting on pure gold. Share it, brother.
The Montgomery Cliffs: Joey Salvia is solo but a reunion would be magic.
