Almost a category unto themselves. Bands whose time in the sun was thirty, forty or more years back but have reformed or stayed together and are putting out records that are worthy of comparison with that of those half their age. Pixies win this year as it seems to soon to put Wilco into this particular category.
- Pixies - Beneath The Eyrie
- Sebadoh - act surprised
- Meat Puppets - Dusty Notes
Honorary mentions for the aforesaid Wilco, Neil Young, Bob Mould, Clinic, Wreckless Eric, Tindersticks and Swervedriver. As I said, a difficult thing to define. Fine set of records mind!
