Major good fellow, GrammyÂ© winner, Athens resident and ECR reader Henry Owings (publisher of the great Chunklet Magazine) slipped me this one a few months back, and it’s a killer. Not only is it the band performing for a hometown crowd on the eve of their success, but everyone involved is in peak musical form.
If you’re at all interested in the subject of Athens, then make a point to track down “Party Out of Bounds”, the great Athens rock bio book, which profiles a number of great acts like the Method Actors, Pylon and Love Tractor. And, yeah — R.E.M. too.
