Bob Mould at Joe's Pub in 2009 (more by Jacob Blickenstaff)
Lists: '90s bands we hope never reunite... Below are [a few] bands we hope never get back together, because we like them too much to see them like that....And the legendary Bob Mould will continue his non-reunion streak (playing as a member of No Age doesn't count) by playing two weeks worth of shows before the year is over. That includes an intimate solo gig at the Rock Shop on November 6th with Chris Brokaw (tickets), and the previously mentiond ones at City Winery with Lenny Kaye (11/4 - tickets) and Marshall Crenshaw (11/5 - tickets).
The Afghan Whigs: These days, former lead singer Greg Dulli co-owns a cop bar out in LA. This is as it should be.
Refused: Rumors of a 2010 reunion turn out to have been exaggerated, so we're going to take the band's infamous breakup manifesto at its word.
Pulp: Another band whose long-rumored reunion (at this year's Glastonbury) turns out to have been exaggerated, thank goodness...
Uncle Tupelo: Former frontmen Jay Farrar and Jeff Tweedy are busy in successful bands (Son Volt and Wilco) and by most all accounts dislike each other intensely, so we're not too worried about this one.
Sugar: Bob Mould is already on a roll, having never reunited his beloved Husker Du. All he has to do is keep not getting his bands back together, which shouldn't be that hard. -[Washington Post]
