Out of a little-known southern college town came four young men taking the cryptic name of R.E.M. First heard on an independently issued single, the band soon established themselves as one of the most provocative and innovative on the rock scene.MoreOut of a little-known southern college town came four young men taking the cryptic name of R.E.M. First heard on an independently issued single, the band soon established themselves as one of the most provocative and innovative on the rock scene. Their first album, Murmur, is famous for its impenetrability, the dense sound of vocals-guitars-bass-drums all mixed together creating an impressionistic landscape of the South. This book tells the story of the band from its beginnings through first-person interviews and recollections, and places their early songs into the context of the making of one of rocks most influential albums.
