I'm thinking this would be a great reunion. Go with the Spilt Milk line-up. Everyone is still alive. They have great music.

Just my two cents

How is this a fucking rumor? Can't you read?

granted this isn't a rumor but jellyfish would be a blast to see. a fairly forgotten band which didn't get a huge following in the states but they sounded great back in the day. you have to like their fairy tale kind of sound though

Any of the following would be amazing:
Jellyfish
The Grays
Andy Sturmer
Jason Falkner
Roger Manning
Jon Brion
LEO - Bleu

Spilt Milk is one of the very best pieces of music ever produced.

I saw Jason Falkner preform with Air once and I had a roommate that dated him. If I remember correctly she said he was a douche.

Ok now you guys are just making up bands.

They were a real band. Like a one hit wonder. Jason Falkner was the lead singer.

Andy Sturmer was the lead singer (and drummer)...not Jason. If I remember correctly, Jason wasn't even on Spilt Milk.

And there were a 2-4 hit wonder..."King Is Half Undressed" & "Baby's Coming Back" were bigish hits. "The Ghost at #1" was on 120 Minutes quite a bit, but I don't know if you'd call it a hit. I don't know if "Joining A Fanclub" was released as a single, but it should have been.

I saw them at a festival in '91...awesome. And Spilt Milk wasn't even out yet, so they hadn't peaked yet.

Don't forget the crappy pre-fab version of Shonen Knife..."Puffi Ami Yumi". Andy writes many of their songs and plays most of the instruments. A lot of their songs have break-downs in the middle that sound exactly like Jellyfish.

They also covered "Joining A Fan Club".

I forgot..."That Is Why" got a lot of airplay too.

Roger Manning played with Air. That doesn't mean that Jason didn't...but I've never heard about it.

With Air in Los Angeles at the Mayan in 2001.

Air Music Videos - Air's new music video for "People In The City" live at the Mayan Theater features Jason on bass. The video for "Radio #1" also features shots of Jason singing at the end, which you can live-stream with a Real Player or a Windows Media Player. Check them both out here.

I just assumed Jason was the lead singer of Jellyfish. Sorry had not thought about them in like 16 years.
