Marquee Noon: Belly

In 2018 the release of Dove, the first Belly album in 23 years, was everything that fans of their mid-'90s work could hope for. A reunion, however, invites re-evaluation of a band’s entire body of work as well as the comeback album. As I went back to the band's prior releases, 1993's Star and 1995's King, I found them to be not just as good as I remember them, but better.

This Belly reunion also brought Tanya Donelly, Gail Greenwood and brothers Tom and Chris Gorman to Rockwood Music Hall on the Lower East Side for an FUV Live show. Their performance was a May highlight that year, and for today's "Marquee Noon" at 12pm ET, hear all of the charisma, charm and craft of Belly again.

Can't tune in then? Listen to the show anytime in the FUV Live Vault.
