Reunited and it sounds so good

I recently posted a eulogy bands breaking up recently, so why not profile some heavyweights that have reformed recently? (Reunited playlist - tracklisting here)

The Pixies, The Buzzcocks, Mission of Burma, The Undertones, Slint, The New York Dolls, Dead Can Dance, and American Music Club have all gotten back together recently, touring and even releasing albums in most cases (crossing fingers for The Pixies and Slint.)

The trend seems to be to reform for an event. The Pixies reformed to play at Coachella last year (this year's lineup just listed!) and Slint similarly for Tomorrow's Parties next month. Meanwhile, the New York Dolls reformed at the behest of Morrissey for his UK Meltdown festival.

Listen and enjoy!
