Toploader: Reviving defunct technology

Presumably, Toploader felt that if they got back together for charity, even the flintiest-hearted of us would feel unable to point out that their return is about as welcome as Doctor Crippin turning up, with the plague, and a list of grudges.

The band are doing a date to help raise funds for the ICU at Eastbourne General Hospital but then intend to undo any good that might count for by continuing to tour:

Frontman Joe Washbourn said, "Toploader are back and what better way to say thank you to all of our fans than with a special gig here in Eastbourne.

"The ICU at the DGH is a cause that's particularly close to my heart and I'm thrilled that all profits from the concert will go their way.

"We're all really excited to get back together and can't wait to get back out there and start performing again."

Really? Being back together with Toploader gives you a sense of excitement? That's not really an emotion anyone else is feeling at the news right now. The best we can imagine is 'resigned acceptance', surely?
