    Aye, Sleep'll be a one-off. Don't they owe their former record label cash for the advance they got then smoked/drank or something?

    I'm a grumpy bastard.

    I do hope you're against a Kyuss renunion because of the possible effect it might have had on Queens of the Stone Age?

    Clearly the members of these bands have addressed whatever it was that was keeping them apart, but still... seems to be a reunion every other week at the moment. They'll be a new Nirvana without Kurt before too long, and then Chris Cornell will realise his solo music recently is pretty bad and get back together with Soundgarden.

    That and they would be pissing all over it just for some cash. Still though, wouldnt mind seeing brant bjork on the drums for QotSA or Garcia doing the odd vocal track.

    Sleep wanted their second album to be one song and the record basically said well we arent releasing it then. Not sure if they owe the record company any bills for the recording session though.

    I'm not sure, but one of them dying pretty much ended it. In my mind, at least. :)

    Yeah, especially seeing as it was one of the singers. If it was just a guitarist or some such, no big deal.

    Some of them fell out years ago, but their shrinking bank balance has made reconcilliation seem like an easy thing to do now they've grown up. I can imagine that some of these guys have been hurt badly by the recent stock market and general finacial climate.

    I'd say that another is royalty cheques. Less CDs being bought equals less money in royalties.

    Touring is where the money's at, so that reunion tour is probably a great pension for many of these acts.

    Depends on the band. If it was Cantrell who died AIC would be dead, too, as it was his playing style that gave AIC most of their sound.

    Heard any Mad Season? Got their album but only heard one track so far, quite like it - bit of a supergroup maybe??

    Give yourself £5 or ½ gig, you're worth it.

    They can't make money by sitting on their fat stupid asses anymore. They have to get out and perform.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    I don't mind them getting back together for some gigs as long as it's the proper members and whatnot. Saw the Sex Pistols in Brixton and it was fookin' brilliant.

    Now Soundgarden have (sort of) reunited too. With Tad Doyle from TAD on vocals.

    http://www.spin.com/articles/soundgarden-minus-cornell-play-live-seattle

    Three-fourths of Seattle's Soundgarden reunited Tuesday night in their hometown, but without singer Chris Cornell, who is about to begin touring for his Timbaland-produced solo album, Scream. Taking Cornell's place was Tad Doyle, frontman of late, great '90s grungers TAD.

    The performance -- which happened during a stop on Tom Morello's Justice Tour, featuring his own band, the Nightwatchman -- marked the first time the three Soundgarden members have shared a stage since the band's breakup in 1997.

    With guitarist Kim Thayil, bassist Ben Shepherd, and drummer Matt Cameron behind him at the just-reopened Crocodile Cafe, Doyle screamed through a three-song Soundgarden (or, as many are calling it, "Tadgarden") set, featuring 1994 radio staple "Spoonman," as well as "Hunted Down," off the band's 1987 debut, the Screaming Life EP, and rarity "Nothing to Say," from 1997's greatest-hits collection, A-Sides [Via Seattle Post-Intelligencer].

    The massive Doyle even quipped about Cornell's absence, according to Seattle Weekly's Jonathan Cunningham: "Tad lifted his shirt up a few times, jiggled his belly, and said, 'That's half a Cornell right there' with attitude."

    The show -- which also featured Mudhoney’s Mark Arm singing "Kick Out the Jams" with Morello and MC5’s Wayne Kramer, and Morello singing "The Ghost of Tom Joad" with Steve Earle -- marks the second time this month that a '90s alt-rock band reunited with a new frontman; the remaining members of Sublime recently performed with a new singer in Nevada, much to the dismay of their fans.

    Sublime 'reunion' is still happening.

    Of all these reunions, this is the one I am the most uncomfortable with. Brad (singer/guitarist) was such an integral part of who and what they were that it's just not right to continue a band with that name, regardless of how much the replacement sounds like him. It's like Nirvana getting back together with some Cobain soundalike taking over guitar/vocal duties.

    Get in.

    http://www.reuters.com/article/musicNews/idUSTRE5A30FZ20091104

    LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - A Los Angeles judge has shut down an effort by former members of the ska-punk band Sublime to perform under the name.

    The preliminary injunction was issued Tuesday in a trademark lawsuit brought by the estate of frontman Bradley Nowell, who died of a drug overdose in 1996.

    Surviving band members Eric Wilson and Bud Gaugh have continued to perform. For years they played as the Long Beach Dub Allstars, but recently they revived the Sublime moniker when they recruited newcomer Rome Ramirez as lead vocalist.

    That didn't sit well with Nowell's family. Three days before the band's performance at the Cypress Hill Smokeout Festival in southern California on October 24, the Bradley Nowell estate and merchandising entity filed a trademark infringement suit in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles.

    "Prior to his untimely passing, both Bud and Eric acknowledged that Brad Nowell was the sole owner of the name Sublime," the Nowell family posted on the band's MySpace page. "It was Brad's expressed intention that no one use the name Sublime in any group that did not include him, and Brad even registered the trademark 'Sublime' under his own name."

    Now Judge Howard Matz has agreed with the family, issuing the injunction citing the estate's likelihood of prevailing on its trademark claim. Matz asked the estate's attorneys to draw up a written injunction for him to sign.

    "We are gratified the Court ruled in our favor and found that Bud, Eric and Rome could not use the name Sublime without first obtaining permission from Brad's heirs," Nowell's family said in a statement. "We believe this will help protect and preserve Brad's musical legacy."

    Cap'n Jazz (and maybe Owls) have also reformed. Hopefully they'll come over here at some point.
