The jam band supergroup, Oysterhead is apparently considering the idea for a reunion in the near future. The band is made up of The Police’s Stewart Copeland, lead frontman of Primus Les Calypool and Trey Anastasio from the popular jam band Phish. The group was formed in 2000 and has released just one record together in 2001 titled, The Grand Pecking Order. Besides a short tour that same year and a couple random shows in 2006 the band has not been seen.
In an interview with Radio.com, Copeland said that all of the members had said that they were interested in a reunion. “We haven’t actually all been in the same room at the same time for quite a while. I saw Trey not too long ago, I see Les all the time, and we all say, ‘Yeah, we’re gonna do it, we’re gonna do it!’ And we all love the idea, but the two other guys have working bands. I’ve got what I’m doing, but I’m probably a lot more available than they are. But when a hole in both of their schedules emerges, we’ll probably do something. I’d like to get both of them over here to the Sacred Grove, just to do a Sacred Grove track just for a start.”
This should be great news for fans of the band and hopefully this reunion will come to fruition soon. Watch a live performance by the band below.
