Vintage Mikey (and a bit of Pete)

No news lately, so I thought I should entertain you with more vintage R.E.M. videos uploaded by my Youtube pal PeterBuckRocks. The first, unfortunately incomplete but still cool clip dates from 1983, shortly after the release of the band’s legendary first LP Murmur. The chatty duo of Peter Buck and Mike Mills were invited to the Video Music Channel studio, where they were interviewed by some high school students. Eighties hair and all.

The second interview was filmed in 1990, while R.E.M. were working on their most successful album Out of Time. The cutie pie Mike discussed the recording process and explained some of the band’s creative decisions. Enjoy!
