Bands never break up these days; they just disband for a few years before making a victory lap, usually playing their most popular record live to grateful fans. It's a familiar, time-honored tradition, and one now observed by L.A. goths Concrete Blonde. After toiling for most of the early '80s in anonymity, the group eventually released its most successful album, Bloodletting, in 1990, which spawned the minor, Heart-like hit "Joey." Concrete Blonde quickly fizzled out and went on hiatus, re-emerging in the '00s, only to disappear once more. Alive again in 2010 following a second hiatus, Concrete Blonde is primed to embrace its past: This summer will also see the release of a special edition of Bloodletting with bonus tracks.
