Changing the world (or not)

It is very strange to see the word "reformed" used in the BBC News report on LiveEarth to refer to bands that have formed again, e.g. "reformed group Genesis, featuring Phil Collins" and "reformed New Zealand group Crowded House". I keep wondering: Did they behave really badly and have to go to a reformatory school? Since this was a LiveEarth event, are they reformed in the sense that they're going to cut their carbon footprint and preach the green message (as opposed to say, the profit-motive message) anymore?

But it seems nobody is being that radical.

Of course, the BBC could've just stuck a hyphen in it to say "re-formed", and it wouldn't have gotten my hopes up ...
