The creepy/cryptic title of this post will start to make sense as soon as you’ve read the latest additions to our Press Archive. But before that, many thanks to Dol who has informed us that the acclaimed Athens band Widespread Panic has announced the release of their two-disc/three-vinyl set Live In The Classic City II on 28 September 2010. The reason why we’re mentioning this is because Live In The Classic City II includes a very special guests – R.E.M.’s own Mike Mills! The three-night run at the Classic Center Theatre in Athens in April 2000 was the first time Mike ever performed with Widespread Panic, so it is great that these previously unavailable recordings are finally getting released. Since then, Mike has collaborated with Widespread Panic on several occasions, most recently at the New Year 2010 shows in Atlanta (those clips are available via our Spotlight). Read more about the upcoming release here.

As for the Press Archive, I’ve retyped and uploaded three features from the Automatic For The People-era, originally published by Melody Maker, Boston Globe and Chicago Tribune. Enjoy!
