Close Lobsters Come Out of Shell

Perhaps I need to book a second trip to Scotland. All five original members of Close Lobsters, one of my favorite jangle-pop bands of all time, are reuniting for a few shows in 2012, including Glasgow. You can see Andrew Burnett's announcement and the reasons for getting back together on Facebook. The best part is there seems to be a good chance more shows will be added. This lineup hasn't played together since 1989. So, yes, it's kind of a big deal. Most of their work is pretty hard to come by here in the States, but I highly recommend the import singles collection 'Forever, Until Victory!' for starters.
