are there any bands you would pay top dollar to see reunite?
john the magnetic fields: talking heads.
pete paphides: mellow candle; the astronauts line-up of the lilac time; abba, even though I admire them for not doing so.
stephen the real tuesday weld: walker brothers.
gaylord cf/wfmu: I’ll limit my answer to bands in which all or most original members are alive and available, so I’ll say dolly mixture. I’d also break the bank for a kinks reunion as well as one with the diana-mary-cindy supremes.
michael white: everything but the girl—but only if they played eden in its entirety and in the venue of my choosing, such as my living room.
corin tucker: it’s not really about money, but bikini kill would make me happy.
daniel handler: I’m not good at these reunite questions. I just keep picturing the reanimated corpse of shostakovich or mary hansen or something.
erin a girl called eddy: the smiths.
fran cannane: the particles. smokey robinson and the miracles.
stephin the magnetic fields: felt.
hannah grass widow: the raincoats. and I feel so lucky to have seen them play several times!
matt lorelei: I doubt it is possible but, josef k and/or snapper. oh and loop, the sheer mention of which will no doubt send my lovely wife into spasms of laughter as she has seen loop and I have not.
sam the magnetic fields: the magnetic fields.
james dump/yo la tengo: yura yura teikoku.
dawn cf: not sure I would pay top dollar to see anyone reunite. the question is would I go? it’s mostly bands I loved that I never got a chance to see: replacements?
ian musical chairs: sneaky feelings, orange juice.
bridget st john: no!
mark teenbeat/unrest: queen (with freddie mercury). the smiths (of course, like probably everyone else here).
tim dagger: no…ok, maybe the smiths.
janice cf: velocity girl.
gordon the fan modine: yep. gotta be the smiths. never say never.
ed shelflife: the housemartins.
jennifer o’connor: maybe the sundays, never got to see them, really loved them back in the day.
darren hanlon: jake thackray.
clarissa cf: if masada got back together 20 years from now, I’d probably fly across the country to see them.
andrew eggs/talk it: no.
the legendary jim ruiz: heavenly, the jazz butcher, the housemartins, the style council, any old mersey beat bands like the merseybeats, the searchers or the escorts, to name a few.
gail cf: dolly mixture. marine girls. tiger trap.
shaun brilldream: I would give my right arm for the smiths not to reform.
joe pines / foxgloves: honeymoon diary. the world could use a little more jennifer robbins. I would also pay my favorite just to come over and play ‘homeless club kids’ with me.
