An amazing document of this important southern scene – the soundtrack to a key rockumentary from the 80s, with a strong focus on the flowering of music in Athens, Georgia! Athens really just burst briefly as a scene in the US at the start of the decade – but went onto have a huge impact on music for years to come – thanks to work from groups like The B-52s, REM
, Pylon, and a host of great lesser-knowns featured here. Titles include a rare recording of "Dream" by REM
, plus "Pretty" by Love Tractor, "Hi" by Time Toy, "Stop It" by Pylon, "His & Hearse" by BBQ Killers, "Crazy Hazy Kisses" by Flat Duo Jets, "Golden" by Dreams So Real, "Elephant Radio" by The Squalls, "Swan Swan H" by REM
, and "Na Na Na Na" by The Squalls.
