The single for "Losing My Religion" was released in the US on this day in 1991. The song reached #4 on the Billboard singles chart, the band’s highest charting single in the USA and was the “song of the summer” all over Europe. “Losing My Religion” was nominated for 7 Grammy Awards and won two for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal and Best Short Form Music Video. Here's the video directed by Tarsem.

Our friends at the The R.E.M. Timeline have the skinny on what the band was up to around this time back in February 1992. Recordings were underway at John Keane Studios in Athens, Feb. 17-21, for Automatic For The People. Tracks recorded included: 18 February - Wake Her Up (The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite) / Funk Snippet / Eastern 983111 other tracks recorded included: Steel Rewrite (Photograph) / 10K Minimal (Find The River) / Arabic Feedback (Instrumental) (Christmas In Tunisia) / Drive / Big Talk (Devil Rides Backwards) / Michael's Organ (Instrumental) (Everybody Hurts) / Peter's New Song (Instrumental) / Chance (Dub) / Bill's Acoustic (Instrumental) / C To D Slide (Man On The Moon) / Mike's Pop Song / Bazouki Michael's Fav (Instrumental) (Monty Got A Raw Deal) / Howler Monkey (Instrumental) (Ignoreland) / Cello Scud (Sweetness Follows) notes: Demo Recording Session for 'Automatic For The People'. 'Big Talk' contains the well known lyrics 'Devil Rides Backwards On A Mule Called Maybe', 'Peter's New Song' sounds very similar to 'The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite', & 'Eastern 983111' is a completely new song with lyrics. Michael is still working out the lyrics to 'C To D Slide' (Man On The Moon) as he hums most of the way through the track. http://bit.ly/devilrides

We’re glad to learn that Bill Cody is working on a follow-up documentary to his (and Tony Gayton’s) legendary documentary "Athens, GA: Inside/Out." "Athens GA Third Years On . . . . . " will focus on the cast members’ lives and what they are up to in the same but different town now thirty years later. That’s all we know for now but it sounds great and we look forward to the local premiere. In the meantime, here’s something to refresh your memory from 1987, R.E.M. covering the Everly Brothers classic (All I Have to Do Is) Dream" berto.fyi/ATHinoutDream Here’s a way to help get this film made: berto.fyi/supportAthens30yearson

So the next time somebody puts together a playlist here are a few R.E.M. songs to consider, depending on context of course— sometimes the song fits, sometimes not…. https://spoti.fi/2SYIuzE

Own A Piece of R.E.M. History: Limited Edition Photograph for a Great Cause, and a Great Friend If you've been around the Athens music scene much at all, it's likely you're familiar with the name Chris McKay. Chris has been a stalwart on the scene for quite some time both as a musician and a photographer for Flagpole, not to mention a much-beloved Athenian and friend of REMHQ. That's why we're really happy to announce that one of Chris' most iconic photographs of the band is being made available for a very good cause: Chris McKay himself. In 2017, Chris was involved in a car accident (not his fault) that left him with a serious traumatic brain injury and vertebral artery dissection. The doctors say that Chris will "get better eventually," but it continues to be tough going for him, so much so that he hasn't been able to perform music--his passion--or take photographs--his day job. Chris' Go Fund Me: https://www.gofundme.com/helping-chris-with-medical-bills Over the years, Chris has had a handful of R.E.M. photographs published in some of the more venerable and respected music magazines; in fact, the one being made available here appeared in both Rolling Stone and Uncut. As you'll see, it's a pretty unique image of the band (Mike, Michael, Peter, and Bill) at the 40 Watt Club making a surprise appearance at the 2006 Finest Worksongs Benefit. (And the day after all 4 guys recorded "No. 9 Dream” at Chase Park for “Instant Karma,” the John Lennon covers album benefitting Amnesty International). This event was also the last time that the four of them performed publicly as R.E.M. in Athens, Georgia. So, here's your opportunity to own a piece of R.E.M. history while lending your support to our friend Chris in his continuing efforts to recover. The photograph is available in three different options and details are below: "R.E.M. at the 40 Watt, Finest Worksongs Tribute 2006” (All prints are 11 X 14, matte printed on high quality paper) *20 prints signed by all four members of R.E.M. and signed and numbered by the photographer for $500 (+ $5 shipping for USA, $20 outside of US). *25 prints signed and numbered by photographer, Chris McKay for $75 (+ $5 shipping USA, $20 shipping outside of US) *Open edition, signed by Chris McKay (unnumbered) for $50 (+ $5 shipping USA, $20 shipping outside of US) Reserve an original print (first come, first served) at PayPal with the address [email protected] Use the "gift / donation" option to avoid any additional fees. Please be sure to leave full contact information, including shipping address. The prints will be sent out as soon as they can be signed and mailed. Thank you for helping out! REMHQ

Here's a really great profile on one of our favorite bands, Eyelids, the Portland-based power-pop rockers whose new record--"The Accidental Falls"--was produced by REMHQ's very own Peter Buck. As Bertis said in a separate post, "Peter has been telling us about these guys for years. Their new PLB-produced record is out and there’s quite a backstory which is explained very well in this profile of the Eyelids, PDX rock royalty." You can also check out their new video "It's About to go Down" at the link. https://berto.fyi/2DgxZOk The band hits the road next week starting February 12 at Cat’s Cradle in Chapel Hill, February 13 at 529 in Atlanta, and February 14 at the 40 Watt Club in Athens for a special show with the amazing Drive-By Truckers.

Early February 1987, the band set up at John Keane's intimate studio in Athens to work on demo tracks for Document. "This One Goes Out" was the working title for this demo which became the band's first top ten hit, "The One I Love" (No. 9 in the US Billboard Hot 100). Thanks to Chris Hartstonge for the audio. http://bit.ly/thisonegoesout
