Sew it on…
The year of reuinons?
Maybe we’re not seeing Moz and Marr back together, but we are most certainly seeing Pavement – and more importantly – Sunny Day Real Estate reforming, at least for now. (Note: The Pixies are recording new music together and I guess Blur reunited too, but who cares about a Blur reunion?)
Just to emphasize SDRE, who would have thought? This is the first tour since 1995 with the original members of SDRE. William Goldsmith and Nate Mendel had been performing in the Foo Fighters from 1995-1997, and when SDRE toured in 1997 only William came back. Since then we’ve seen The Fire Theft (which did featured Jeremy Enigk, William and Nate) and more of Jeremy’s solo career (which seems to be doing well, so I figured he’d be touring with his solo material for a while…). Still, there is nearly nothing sweeter than a full-on SDRE reunion. I’ve not much more to express about this at the moment except sadness that I won’t be in the United States to see SDRE. Maybe they’ll stop by Glasgow or Edinburgh.
Check out this video of SDRE playing their classic “Seven” (and playing it exquisitely) on Jimmy Fallon:
