A reunion, or just raising their heads above the parapets?

Douglas Wolk notes on Lacunae that Scrawl, one of my all time favorite bands, is playing a "reunion" show opening for Shellac in Chicago next month. Now, I may be mistaken about this, but I don't think Scrawl ever broke up, making a reunion show a bit difficult to pull off. When their drummer Dana decamped to Sweden, the band changed, but Marcy and Sue still played shows as Scrawl, at least in Columbus, using a drum machine. Shirley, you know them; correct me in comments if I'm wrong on this. I know they've kept an awfully low profile the past few years, but I didn't think the band was over. Maybe "reunion" means that Dana is back? Or maybe, given that Douglas' post was about the band's intention to release a compilation of tracks from their (wonderful) early records, they're playing a show with their original drummer Carolyn?

Note: I’m tired of clearing the spam from my comments, so comments are no longer accepted.

this appears to be a rescheduling of the show that was supposed to happen on new year's eve but didn't. scrawl's most recent drummer has been jovan karcic (guitarist for gaunt), who adds a welcome rock back into their roll. (scrawl shows have been few and far between, so i suppose in some eyes "reunion" isn't all that inappropriate.) i'll confirm and get back to you...if it's happening, i might just have to be there!

What do you mean there is no cat?

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

- Albert Einstein, explaining radio
