NEVER TALKING TO YOU AGAIN?: Anderson & Butler, Morrissey & NME - it's been something of a year for unexpected reunions. Now, Hart and Mould have got back together, reuniting under the Husker Du banner as part of a hugely successful fundraiser for Karl Mueller. Mueller - bassist with Soul Asylum - has been taking on throat cancer; the benefit in Minneapolis pulled in fifty thousand dollars, a healthy slice of cash in a country with no socialised medical care, and where being ill costs a lot.

The gig also featured a reunion of Gear Daddies (anyone?), Soul Asylum and Paul Westerberg.
