I spoke to the MM guys about their coming out of hibernation for Spinner.

Unless you hate music you’ve probably figured out there are a lot of bands from the ’90s and early 2000s reuniting.

Pretty much every big British band (except The Smiths is doing it) — Blur, Jesus And Mary Chain, The Stone Roses, Happy Mondays.

The same thing’s happening in Canada where the likes of Headstones, Change Of Heart, The Grapes Of Wrath, Thrush Hermit, The Watchmen, Eric’s Trip, Big Sugar, hHead, I Mother Earth, The Doughboys, King Cobb Steelie, Rusty, The Tea Party and Raggadeth are just a sample of the bands that have gotten back together in some form or another.

With that in mind Maclean’s sent Aaron off to figure out what the deal was. He ended up interviewing Treble Charger, Big Wreck, The Inbreds, Econoline Crush and Mystery Machine and the resulting story can be read here.
