The Reformation Game!

The Reformation Game!

We never thought we'd see the day some of our life-changing, music-changing bands would ever get back in the same room as each other, let alone start actually making and performing music agian.

So lo, and behold, 2007 has been a bit of hectic year for musicians putting aside their historical grudges (and possibly running out of money) and being part of the Reformation Game!

This year, we've seen LED ZEPPELIN, THE JESUS AND MARY CHAIN, THE VERVE, and [b]RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE[/b] return to active service. And yesterday, MY BLOODY VALENTINE announced their first live dates in 16 years.

So, it got us thinking: [b]who else would we like to see reform..?[/b] Obviously, [b]PINK FLOYD[/b], [b]THE SMITHS[/b] and [b]THE STONE ROSES[/b] would figure pretty highly at the top of anyone lists. But beyond them, what other bands who've meant a lot to you over the years and are now sadly no more would you like to see get back together..?

A quick office poll has seen suggestions ranging from [b]SPACEMEN 3[/b] to [b]ATARI TEENAGE RIOT[/b], [b]BUFFALO SPRINGFIELD[/b], [b]N.W.A[/b] and [b]PULP[/b].

Now it's over to you... Who do you want to scramble for tickets for!?
