The members of REM were busy last night. Michael Stipe opened for Patti Smith here in NYC playing a set of covers. But the rest of the members of that band were in Vadsø, Norway, at the Ice Station Vadsø music festival. The band they are in now is The Baseball Project, which consists of Steve Wynn, Linda Pitmon, Mike Mills, Peter Buck and Scott McCaughey. Here they are joined by Tim Keegan on backing vocals and tambourine. Mike Mills takes lead on vocals here on the old REM chestnut, (Don’t Go Back To) Rockville. A big tip of the hat to kiwichrisha, who recorded this and got it up on the Internet in record time.
