Pylon were an influential band in the Athens, GA scene in the 1980s. You've probably never heard of them. That doesn't matter. What matters is that they were cool and influential. Their lo-fi punky sound did greatly guide the direction of the entire scene.
This song, remarkably simple and famously and faithfully covered by R.E.M., is probably their best known, and the one everyone wants to hear when they reunite, as they did for this show in 2008. It sounds as good as it did in 1982.
