Groups you WOULD like to see reunite

Looks like a good number of Morphine fans here. They used to hang in Central Square in Cambridge, about 3/4 of a mile from my current residence. Met Dana Colley at the Plough and Stars, and now Jerome Deupree drums for a friend of mine who plays fretless bass (as well as two-string fretted - giving that Morphine sound) and was majorly influenced by the Sandman.

Shortly after his death in 1999, the corner of Brookline Avenue and Massachusetts Avenue in Central Square was named Mark Sandman Square in his honor, and the sign, as well as his memory, remains to this day.
 
As I mentioned above, they were based in Cambridge (Massachusetts). I suppose I should've mentioned that is wasn't Cambridge, England. Anyway, "Early to Bed" from "Like Swimming" was their best-known track, although they remained primarily an Indie band in terms of their following. The line-up was as follows:

Mark Sandman: 2-String bass and vocals
Dana Colley: Baritone sax
Jerome Deupree and/or Billy Conway: Percussion

Sandman had a really brooding sound to his customized bass guitar and most of the material was rather dark, but certainly not morbidly so.

Definately worth a listen.
 
Another Bostonian here, at least for 3 more days, and I can attest to the goodness of Morphine, I saw him play the Central Square festival just a few months before he died.

Bump.

I missed this thread the first time around. I will use the "Pete Best Rule" and urge The Replacements to reunite. Since Bob Stinson was supplanted by Slim Dunlap, I will go ahead and knock Dunlap out of the picture to play lead guitar myself.

Hey it's my fantasy...

No it wasn't. But I've played in some stress-filled/freaked-out situations too, only without a talent like Westerberg.

I've played in some stress filled situations with people who were very talented, and it's no better. Well - maybe a little better, because if the audience are throwing things, they are likely aiming for the talent, center stage.

So we agree.

Okay, can I have the Bee Gees reunited, Rob Zombie as lead singer but only doing Carpenter songs with John Tesh on piano.

Good news, Rage Against The Machine is back together! Original members as far as I know. They're mostly doing shows in Europe. IMO they are everything a rock band should be. Proficient, angry, and actually have something to say. Hopefully they do some more shows in the states. They could call it the "Told Ya So Tour"
 
I'd like to see Black Sabbath reunite but Marie Osmond in place of Ozzy and then for guitar I would like Jose Feliciano and they wouldn't do Sabbath songs but "Light My Fire" and "You Light Up My Life" and "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" and instead of bass they would have Rick Wakeman from Yes on Keyboards but he wouldn't play except he would read excerpts from "Tales of Topographic Oceans," and while this was going on Paris Hilton would be pleasuring Marie Osmond in the most delicate way.

But, alas, this is all a dream of mine. And that it must stay.

I saw that very show in 1976 (only it was Caroline Kennedy, not Paris Hilton). Overrated! You didn't miss anything.

It sounds like the 'cid in CA is a bit better than that in MA. ;)

Actually, that sounds like a great show. EXCEPT: Gotta have Tammy Wynette on upright bass.

Now we've got something. :cool:
 
I would like to see the members of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young reunite but they would do it dressed as the members of Kiss and only do tunes by Nine Inch Nails.
