this is another one of those boots that comes with a lot of questions but very few answers – as i am only able to provide one piece of actual info. what i do know, for sure, is that this is rem playing sometime in the 80s. what this supposedly is, is an irs era unreleased live recording of a performance @ page auditorium on 9.25.84 in durham, nc. i have read that it was set to be released on irs but stipe didnt like it and thus got scraped. i also read that there were no plans for a live release during that time. this may also be known in some circles as we are having a heavenly time. as always, if you can shed some light on what this may or may not be it would be appreciated.

in other news, scott bondy, formerly of the great birmingham trio verbena, is prepping the release of his debut under the aa bondy moniker, american hearts on 9.18. judging by the this track it seems as if mr bondy has ditched the trashy stones for a more dylan-esque approach. american hearts was recorded in a new york barn during the dead of winter and it sounds like it.
