Another Glorious Noise video feature! In this episode, the Blacks perform “New New Waltzing Blues” and “Fake Out Jesus” live at their July 2006 reunion show in Chicago. And as a special bonus, we’re throwing in a couple videos of other bands you should love.
Jayhawks Principals Regroup For Tour: “There’s obviously an audience for it and we like to do it. Sure, it’s a bit of a money-maker, it’s a job, but it’s going to be fun,” Louris tells Billboard.com. “One of the really appealing parts is to hang out with Mark and be friends again.”
Iggy Gets Busy On Stooges Reunion Disc: “I’m still the showoff in the group that gets all the attention. Everyone has their role. It’s pretty much the way it was in high school.”
Replacements Reunite For New Songs – Paul Westerberg, Tommy Stinson and Chris Mars recorded two new songs for a best of comp due June 13. Josh Freese played drums; Mars sang backing vocals.
Reunions bring together the long lost and they encourage nostalgic pangs of happiness, awe, and occasional sadness. When an obscure Dischord band reunites after ten years of hibernation, an Act of God strands fans miles away in a blizzard.
