Thurston Moore is a funny fella.

Sonic Youth rules. That's pretty much a given. And as far as we know, Thurston Moore, Kim Gordon, Lee Ranaldo and Steve Shelley are doing all right financially. But this quote from Moore about band reunions is both funny and perhaps true as well:

"The Pixies reunion was a real success, and Dinosaur Jr. seems like a big success, and both those bands play as good as they ever did. Mission Of Burma blew my mind when they came back. But a band like us never did break up. Which was to our own detriment. What would have happened if we did break up after (classic 1988 double album) Daydream Nation - or even after (1990's) Dirty - and had gotten back together two years ago? You'd be interviewing me at the Chateau Marmont as I'm waiting for my limousine. We probably would have made so much money. This was our biggest career faux-pas - not breaking up."

This seems like a good one for the comments. Two questions, y'all:

1) What is your favorite reformed band?


2) Which band needs to break up?

Have fun...

The Pixies are not as ferocious and funny as they were the first time round. I don't count Dinosaur as a reunion cuz The Fog etc was great stuff and J Mascis IS Dinosaur as far as I'm concerned. Never got into Sebadoh. Wire came back but they have a history of starting and stopping so that doesn't count either. Morrissey came back properly. Real quality.
