Fantastic (underrated and semi-unknown...) band and great albums, especially 1996 "I Was The King...", i really would love to see them get back together and come up with some of their unique rock music with intellectual/satirical lyrics, like in the classics "the Greenhouse" or "London Bridge' and the melancholy of stunning tunes such as "Faded Glamour" and "East St. O'Neill". I really miss them, wonder what Hank Starrs and Hugh Barker are up to these days...
