Sadly, Wild Flag, despite acclaim for their eponymous debut, are no more: “It was great but I think it just kinda ran its course," Weiss tells us. "It’s hard to have a band when you live five hours apart by plane.”The article goes on to theorize that this raises the possibility of a Sleater-Kinney reunion coming soon, although of course Weiss is currently drumming for her longtime band Quasi; they're in the middle of a UK tour.
As the news echoes around the internet (as in here and here), pundits are hoping, hoping for a Sleater-Kinney reunion, citing as encouraging evidence the November 29 Pearl Jam show in Portland, when Weiss, Brownstein, and Corin Tucker all joined Vedder & Co. onstage for a finale of Neil Young's "Rockin' in the Free World." (Rolling Stone went so far as to call it a Sleater-Kinney reunion.)
