Eighties-era acts that had been buried-broken up, or simply faded into the woodwork-are criss-crossing the country in hopes of reviving attention and long-dormant careers. Asia, Men At Work, INXS, The Fixx, Howard Jones, Midnight Oil, Billy Squier, The Motels, Berlin, The Outfield, Loverboy, Poison and The Psychedelic Furs are all slated to hit the road.

After a long vacation, The Go-Go's got the beat again, with an album coming in May, plus a year-long world tour. The Bangles' eternal flame is re-lit, as they shop for a recording deal, with more than 30 songs written for an impending reunion album. Lionel Richie is attempting a comeback, and Huey Lewis can be heard on adult pop stations all over America singing with Gwyneth Paltrow. The song that brought them together? Smokey Robinson's "Cruisin'", which originally popped into the Top 10 during the first month of the '80s.

"I think there's multiple reasons for the re-birth of so many bands," Bangle drummer Debbi Peterson says. "Some are financial, some are [bands that] broke up, and they're like, 'Hey, let's do this again.' Even though you work with different people, you miss the old gang." / Issue 15 - September 2018
