Robert Hampson announces reunion of band via Facebook

Add your comment »

Oh my giddy aunt. They've only gone and done it. The small graphic above has just appeared on Robert Hampson's Facebook page just days after he played 'Straight To Your Heart' on stage with Godflesh at Roadburn.

The frontman had this nugget of information to offer but little else: "I will say this... the line-up is Mr John Wills (Drums) Mr Neil Mackay (Bass) Mr Scott Dowson (Guitar) and some grey haired old fool who should know better grumbling into a mic..."

There's a website coming and everything...

LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! LOOP! [faints]

Loop tore strips off those whimps Spacemen 3. Not sure about reforming though. Is it a bit sad?

Please - not the Loop vs Spacemen 3 argument again. Surely it's possible to like them both. I know Sonic and Robert don't get aliong, but why should that matter to anyone who doesn't know either of them except through their music?

Fuck yes. I discovered A Guilded Eternity in a local second hand record shop as a teenager. Never expected to get to hear any of it in a live arena.
