This is one of the more exciting rock reunions -- that of Brett Anderson and Bernard Butler, even though they only really managed to compose 5 good songs over 2 albums, those 5 songs were sensational. It was sad to hear a report that when Bernard Butler was playing a gig in LA in the late 90s he couldn't get people to stop talking, as he mournfully strummed on his guitar and didn't sing about much at all and didn't sing that well. His charisma is pathetically less than his song-writing talents.
