Talking Heads and Oingo Boingo would both be huge for me.

Also:

Husker Du
Dead Kennedys
Replacements

Wang Chung's back together, but I'd like to see the original Huang Chung make another album. A Fleetwood Mac album with Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, Christine McVie, John McVie and Bob Welch would be awesome.

You bastard. How could I have forgotten them? I play their Greatest Hits once a week. I was also going to say Split Enz, the English Beat (or General Public or the Fine Young Cannibals).

yeah!

Art of Noise
Polyphonic Spree
Boo Radleys ( )
Suede (yeah, they recently did a one-off reunion show, but why not another album while they are at it)

not really a band per se, but I'd like to see/hear a new 'Deep Forest' album.

The original lineup?? Man, that would be great if they got back together. Their first two albums are so fantastic.

I know that Bruce Foxton played on Paul Weller's latest solo album, so maybe there's still hope? I loved Weller's live versions of The Jam's songs on his later tours.

oh and The Wannadies - you know, the band that was featured on the Baz Luhrmann's 'Romeo and Juliet' soundtrack with their song 'You and Me Song' - the band had seven great albums, and then just... poof... disappeared.

I doubt they will ever reform, but a UK band that I have tremendous appreciation for: 'Straw' released a fantastic album in 1999 ('Shoplifting'), followed by a single from their then forthcoming 2001 album - which, while completed, was never officially commercially released - that single was called 'Sailing Off the Edge of the World' - how appropriately named.

Re: Bands you would like to reunite for one more tour (and maybe a new album)

It always seems that when bands reunite, it's never the same as the back-in-the-day stuff.
The Velvets reunited in '93 with a tour (Europe only) and a live album, but it was kind of a disappointment for me. I loved their one-off surprise reunion in 1990 at a gig in Paris that was really Reed and Cale promoting Songs For Drella, and then they brought out Sterling Morrison and Mo Tucker and played "Heroin". Sadly, nothing else, but it's been bootlegged, and it sounds amazing. But they didn't match that intensity on any of the reunion tour performances.

Would have been awesome if the all the original Kinks reunited, now that we lost Pete Quaife it won't happen.

Even though The Who haven't been able to have all their original members since 1978, they have turned out considerably good concerts periodically in the last 10 years or so with the 3 remaining or 2 remaining guys.

I got the reunion tour this year with Pavement, but I seriously doubt than an album will come out as well (other than a live album).
