With everyone from the Tea Party to the Killjoys making noise again, I’m wondering what other Canadian bands from the 90s should get back together, at least for a tour.
A cool band from Halifax that was around during the early-to-mid-90s, Jale gave us two albums, both released on Sub Pop. They never made it as big as they should have, but perhaps there’s no time like the present to give it another shot…?
Toronto’s Glueleg made good music throughout almost all of the 90s (1990-1998), and I blame them personally for the lack of cool saxophone in my collection of alt rock from the 2000s.
3. Scratching Post
Scratching Post’s rock would fit airwaves and venues just as well today.
4. 13 Engines
I wonder if this Toronto band might have made it big if they’d kept at it a little longer. Twenty years after their breakup might be the right time to resume.
Other than a brief live reunion in 2011, we haven’t heard from Montreal’s Doughboys since 1997. Former members are still active in music, and I think a reunion tour would be quite well-received.
Here are some other suggestions that have come in.
- Thrush Hermit
- King Apparatus
- Bif Naked
- The Odds
- Econoline Crush
- Treble Charger
