Well, if another batch of rumours are to be believed, this time The Daily Record are claiming the seminal shoegazers have signed up for a 21 gig UK tour.
"It's taken a lot of time and effort to get Ian to agree, but he's really up for it. He was at the sticking point throughout the proceedings, but he's finally relented and signed on the dotted line”, an insider is quoted as saying.
"There's been a lot of speculation in the past, but this is the real deal. The rest of the band were really up for it, especially when they realised the amount of money on the table." He added: "Ian has forged a really successful solo career and wasn't very receptive to their plans. It's taken a while, but he's finally come around to the notion."
Excellent news this may be, but lets hope Ian Brown is miming.
