Music-friend Dean alerted us to this recently: Ultrasound have reformed. And not just reformed - fully reformed, all original at-one-point-not-speaking-to-each-other band members and all.
You remember Ultrasound, right? Gave us one overblown, totally beautiful album and then splintered into oblivion? Gave us some of the most OTT pop singles of the late '90's, such as this:
And their best, for my money, THIS:
Yes, we'll they're back and working on album number 2 - as perfect as it was that they only ever gave us one album, it's even more perfect that we're threatened with a second one 12 years later.
This isn't really new news as apparently they played a bunch of shows last September/October in the UK, but it's just getting to our ears now. Even though we never dared hope for it, somehow our wildest dream has come true.
(With Suede on the reunion cycle and now Ultrasound, is it too much to hope for a Geneva reunion? Please please please?)
