Perhaps groups with depleted members could get together into mutant groups: 

 

The beatles and the ramones playing the greatest hits of both (perhaps with
a little wings thrown in for good measure).

christ!  i used crass as a joke.  the ultimate politically correct group.
and they've reformed (badly) too?
ok, elves.  for my next wish - the ramones.  there's more beatles left alive
than ramones now!  (ok, i despise both bands, but let's see if we can lift
this curse)
crass reforming.  sweet crispy christ, whatever next?

Well I played on the same bill as them as part of last years Exeter

punks - as they had to suffer what can only be described as a 
performance of pretentious utter crap - mainly consisting of badly 
played jazz and wailing/moaning/muttering ... trust me the TG debacle 
has some point in comparison ...!

No problem with Crass / TG moving forward - but perhaps a re-branding 
might be in order !! I prefer my memories of Crass to be those of 
from the heady days of Stonehenge festivals and the like !!
