Alright Yeah

Tonite Robyn Hitchcock and the Venus 3 will be performing at the Exit/In in Nashville. For the uninitiated, the Venus 3 is comprised of Peter Buck and R.E.M. touring members Scott McCaughey and Bill Reiflin. Although they've been backing up Hitchcock for three years now, the connection between Robyn & R.E.M. goes back over twenty years. Peter Buck has been a regular contributor on Hitchcock's albums ever since 1987's Globe Of Frogs, and Robyn & The Egyptians opened for R.E.M. on the Green tour in 1989.

In honor of tonite's show, I figured I'd dust off the old Monday morning b-side feature for a double shot of Hitchcock/R.E.M. related rarities. "Dark Green Energy" was the b-side to Robyn's 1991 single "So You Think You're In Love," and features Michael Stipe on vocals. "The Arms Of Love" is a song from Hitchcock's 1993 album Respect, but R.E.M. covered it a year earlier on their "Man On The Moon" single.
