who we are
"The music of R.E.M. made such an impression on myself that it will always be a part of my life. It lives deep down inside and brings much happiness "
- Richard Southern -
Ross Sandland as Peter Buck
"Peter's guitar lines power these songs. Jangly, heartfelt, electric and eccentric at times. It's great to get them back on a live stage ..."
Ross's passion and precision brings new energy to the heart of these sounds. An R.E.M. fan who first came to see Stipe as a fan...
"You can call us a tribute band or copy-cats or imitations. None of those words really work. We play this music and in performance we make it our own."
