Oldies Goldies

Here’s a nice treat for all R.E.M. fans. One of my friends @ Youtube, who goes by the name of PeterBuckRocks, has a cool stash of rare old videos of Mr. Peter Buck, Mr. Mike Mills and the rest of the band. Since the channel is rather new, very few people have seen the vids, which is a shame; so I decided to share them with you here. The first clip features Peter and Mike, who were interviewed by a fluffy-haired MTV presenter in 1983, when R.E.M. were opening for The Police.

And the next two clips are apparently outtakes from the music video for R.E.M.’s 1985 single “Can’t Get There From Here”. Mike is dancing thumbs up and Peter is… well, you’ll see.

    These are great! The fluffy-haired presenter is Nina Blackwood, iirc, one of the original VJs. She’s a prime example of not knowing when to throw in the towel and go back to school; the last 10-15-20 years have been rough for her, I think.
