Not a fan of R.E.M. myself. Did play on the same bill with them several times in the very early days in Chapel Hill/Carrboro, NC. I remember them being a little stand offish but otherwise, fun days. Other bands that I think were better and deserved more recognition would be: Snatches of Pink, Let's Active, Dexter Romweber (and sis Sarah), Fabulous Knobs, etc. The Triangle area of NC gave birth to some damn good music in the 80s. Ah, The Pressure Boys as well.
hey StonedAsia, i remember those bands and just recently saw Mitch Easter in Carrboro, with his new outfit Balderdash LTD.. Let's Active, Flat Duo Jets, as you say the Triangle area of North Carolina, yes there were some excellent bands. Especially including Winston-Salem, and the dB's..
so can i ask, who were you playing with during the early R.E.M. tours, I guess your band opened?
Not sure I can wait til Christmas for this!Quote
My soundtrack for the last few days has been this BBC release...
Best American band of the 80s.
