I was really happy to see the Underground Lovers back together just over a year ago, but since then, nothing (though I did get to see many of them at an excellent GB3 gig last year). Good news this week is that they are playing again, still not in Adelaide, it’s two shows supporting Primal Scream in Melbourne, but apparently they are putting out a compilation and doing a national tour. Of course “national” doesn’t always mean Adelaide but I’m hoping for some good news ….
