The Big Mates provide casual and tangential audio commentary for R.E.M. Live at the Raleigh Underground 1982.
Adam, Steve, and Lucas discuss the live performance (and a whole host of other, completely unrelated things) as broadcast on TV. Shot on just two cameras and only recently remastered, the show offers an interesting glimpse into the early days of the band, performing here before they'd even released an album!
Head to YouTube to watch along:
Or don't - the episode works fine either way!
Our next episode comes out Monday November 27th and sees us begin our deep dive into Murmur, the debut album from R.E.M.!
