Phil Sutcliffe, MOJO, August 2008

SOUNDCHECK. Not long now; the comeback gig's only three hours away. But they don't look nervous. Even when their faces appear in enormous close-up on the big screens above them. Even though tonight, May 28, 2007, Vancouver GM Hockey Arena, it's their first concert for more than 20 years since they broke up in discord and disarray.
