VIDEO: The Wendys - Something's Gone Wrong Somewhere (Gobbledygook, 1991)
Everyone loves a good comeback in music, don't they? In recent years, the homecomings of acts such as Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd have been fleeting yet memorable.
And now, following in the tracks of their alternative indie-rock contemporaries The Stone Roses and Happy Mondays, The Wendys make their grand return to the stage.
This Edinburgh four-piece represented the Madchester era's Scottish contingent, and were signed to Factory Records - the home of James, Joy Division and New Order.
However, their debut album Gobbledygook was released shortly before the legendary label's financial collapse in 1992.
The band subsequently called a long hiatus, which was briefly lifted for their second LP - Sixfootwingspan - in 1999.
Last year, the original line-up announced they would reform for a one-off gig in Glasgow - and that time has come.
'Rehearsals have gone well. Cobwebs dusted off,' the group posted on Twitter.
The reunion celebrates the Pop Pills re-issue of Gobbledygook, from which tomorrow's set will draw heavily.
This may be one of the first high-profile bookings at new North Street bar The Berkeley Suite, but it's a third bite of the cherry for The Wendys.
