R.E.M. – Superman.

Whilst at college in 1987 I was busy failing my A Levels. New friends and music pushed academia away. Regrets and no regrets. One lunch time I went to a mates house about half a mile from the college on the back of a Vespa.

The aim as to borrow some old 2000AD comics. However somehow we ended up listening to this record by a band I’d never heard of. I’m no huge fan of R.E.M. but that introduction was a moment when I heard Husker Du in a band that would become world conquering.

R.E.M. deserve their place and sales. This introduction and the soon following Green album for me will always be the bands high points for me…
