    Seeing as it seems to be quite the rage with the Roses and the Mondays, it was all looking good

    Until now. Six music are presently playing the new single by….

    The Levellers.

    They’ve got an album coming out! Dear God! Its bloody awful! As bad, or worse than you’d expect. Please, please make it stop! 🙁

    Your nominations for a band who’s members you would actually murder if they threatened to re-form, go on tour and get their woeful noise play-listed on six music

    Where’s my gun?

    On the plus side, I hear Ugly Kid Joe are working on an EP as a prequel to a full return, which I am actually looking forward to…..

    Showing my age a bit there…… 😉

    I used to quite like The Levellers but then I did once own 1/6 of a Bedford Sherpa van and each of us painted our 1/6 with whatever we wanted. Maybe there is a bit of crusty in me.

    I think I must black that kind of thing out, I can’t think of any.

    Really sorry about Whitney Houston tho, cos we now have to hear her dreadful version of that song belted out on every news report.

    The only consolation being that Dolly Parton will be raking in the royalties (she buys books for poor children).

    The Levellers have never split up, which invalidates their entry on the ‘Bands that Should Never Reform’ list …

    But still, I wish they’d stop making records, they’re awful* 🙂

    I went out with a girl who’d been seeing one of the Levellers and I always felt a bit odd about it

    Anyway, had they split?

    Reformed bands are never that good are they.

    Apart from the nostalgia factor

    The Levellers never actually split up, it says here. They probably just ended up playing gigs to five stoned crusties and a dog for a decade or so. I have to confess to having a soft spot for them, I was a fan when I was 15, and they’re so earnest, so very, very earnest, bless ’em. Wouldn’t want to listen to their records again though, heavens no.

    I was going to nominate The Cranberries as the band that shouldn’t be allowed to reform, but apparently I’m too late, they got back together in 2009. God I **** hate The Cranberries.

    Reformed bands are never that good are they.

    As a rule I agree, but I saw Pulp last year, and they were absolutely bloody marvellous.

    God, the Levellers. Time to go to the bar everytime they played that shit “down the Poly”!
    Easier to avoid this time.
    Did I just read someone getting excited about new Ugly Kid Joe music.. 😆
    I hate loads of bands, so can’t pin it down to one I would get upset about…

    I saw Faith No More at Donington a couple of years ago, and they kicked bottom.

    I quite liked the Cranberries.

    However, if I never hear another Spandau Ballet song, I won’t be disappointed.

    I had the ‘pleasure’ of seeing Roxy Music at Bestival. Is it me, or does Bryan Ferry sound like Vic Reeves’ club singer?

    Yeah, fair enough. Bloody marvellous sing-a-long nostalgia fest, though.

    I think most of them have reformed, it’s just that the world didn’t care.

    But I’d be really happy if Blur would just f*** off into the distance and not come back. If Damon could also make sure that the ex-Mrs Damon’s terrible Elastica followed to the Great Indy Landfill, that’d be splendid.

    Oh, and Damon? Take Gorillaz with you as well, eh, and The Bad, The Worse And The Whiny while you’re at it.

    Go on, f*** off back to Colchester, you git.

    I’m not even going to talk about The Darkness.

    Not sure about Justin’s new look, but they were rather good on the comeback tour late last year….. part of me still thinks he should have carried on with Hot Leg….. awaits new album with interest before passing final judgement.

    Don’t worry, one of them is now providing backing vocals for Whitney.

    Please don’t let REM reform, they had run their once brilliant course.

    Someone texted in to 6 music to say that when they heard REM had split up it was like hearing someone you thought had died 10 years ago had just died.

    Pink floyd.

    Droning, depressing 70s bollocks that was crap then and still crap now. The only reason so many people like them is because most people are, by nature, dull.

    Not true. I’ve seen the reformed Big Country twice in the last 12 months and they’ve been amongst the best gigs I’ve seen in years.
