Picked this up on Bandcamp today, 40-track compilation of REM covers from a load of indie music label bands to celebrate 40 years of REM. Working through it at the moment, as with any covers compilation it's a mixed bag but definitely worth 6 quid to hear some different interpretations of their tracks. Endorsed by Michael and Bill as well.

I heard about this and searched for it on Deezer but it wasn't there. Thanks for the info on where you can get it.

Early highlights for me are Bugeye's version of Crush With Eyeliner, Ritual Cloak's take on Orange Crush and Desperate Journalist's Finest Worksong.

I, Doris' version of End Of The World, less so...

Cool. I love covers and I love REM so don't think I can go far wrong.

Damn, I thought it was pretty awful...

I liked it, but then I enjoy the Vaccines in a disposable sort of way. They're not a band I take particularly seriously but can happily throw an album on or see at a festival and have a good time.

Yeah I went in to the new Vaccines thinking it was gonna be a bit shit but was pleasantly surprised. Not too different from what they’ve always done - just with a bit of an 80s pop/spaghetti western twinge throughout. Doubt I’ll come back to it too much, but there are a couple of tunes there that will sound nice being belted out at a festival, and that’s about as much as I want/expect from them really.

Same. They're a band I can happily watch at a festival when nothing else takes my fancy, and I'm not looking for much more than that.

Only other one I've got is the new Saint Etienne, not listened to it yet but reviews sitting between 70-80%
