Next year might mark the 30th anniversary these storied post-punk troubadours called it quits, but, on a more positive note, this year marks a decade since they decided to re-form. Sparked on by the interest surrounding them upon the release of music journalist Michael Azerrad’s Our Band Could Be Your Life book, the group, who has inspired artists ranging from R.E.M. to Moby with songs like “That’s When I Reach for My Revolver” and “Academy Fight Song,” has remained in top form in the years since. With EULA and the Static Jacks.
