Having recently toured together in the backing band for the too-nice-not-to-be-a-future-headcase Miley Cyrus, Letters To Cleo singer Kay Hanley and drummer Stacy Jones were probably the easiest to persuade into reforming the band that shot to fame off the back of such classic ’90s visual feasts as ‘Melrose Place’, ‘The Craft’ and ’10 Things I Hate About You’, and the rest of the band appeared to have been quite up for the challenge. Their mini reunion tour – for four dates only – kicked off on Saturday in Los Angeles and comes to a possibly permanent halt on December 11th. But don’t despair, to commemorate the occasion the band have put together a rarities compilation called When Did We Do That? and you can get it right now through their website.
The 12 tracks include covers of The Cars, Nick Lowe and Cheap Trick (all from various soundtracks), original demos, previously unreleased material and other elusive material, like the Japan-only track ‘Happy Ever After’ and the pro-cannabis number ‘Let’s Get High’. Since the band’s breakup in 2000, Kay Hanley has gone on to release two solo albums (Cherry Marmalade in 2002 and this year’s Weaponize), an EP, starred in ‘Josie & The Pussycats’ as Josie’s singing voice and had a baby boy, in case you were wondering.
