Archers of Loaf vs. The Greatest

A brief history of indie rock's best worst-named band

But after 13 years in absentia on good terms, and Merge reissuing the Alias albums (starting with the remastered Icky Mettle, annotated with liner notes by Robert Christgau), the band has returned to touring—as a luxury, not a necessity.

"I thought now's as good a time as any," says Bachmann, "because it's kind of a physical, visceral thing. I'm 41, so if we're gonna do a reunion, we'd better do a reunion. I can't be 70 or 80 years old onstage and singing 'Audio-whore.' I'll have a fucking aneurysm."
