REMbrandt are planning future live and studio recordings for 2018 which we will share here as they become available. For more audio visit our Soundcloud page or check out the videos in the "Movies" section.

Hear our new live demos below...

What's The Frequency, Kenneth? is taken from REM's ninth studio album "Monster". The title comes from the rather bizarre mugging of CBS News anchor man Dan Rather in 1986. In the video, Peter Buck plays a Fender Jag-Stang, that belonged to Kurt Cobain of Nirvana, and was a gift from Courtney Love. The song reached #9 in the UK singles chart.

REM's career is often divided into pre and post - Losing My Religion. The single reached #4 in the US Billboard  Hot 100, #19 in the UK, was Grammy nominated, and one countless other video and performance awards. Taken from the "Out Of Time" LP 1991 and featuring the mandolin as the main instrument, the song is atypical of most of REM's back catalogue, but it is probably the most famous!

"Radio Free Europe" was REM's first single, originally recorded in 1981, it became the band's breakthrough hit when it was re-recorded in 1983 for the "Murmur" LP. The original B - Side to the single was "Sitting Still" which is one of our live favourites.

"The Great Beyond" is taken from the 1999 movie soundtrack "Man On The Moon" a biopic of American comedian Andy Kaufman starring Jim Carey. The film was titled such after REM name checked Kaufman on their famous 1992 single of the same name. The Great Beyond itself actually features some faint backing vocals from "Man On The Moon" in it's original, unedited version....."Here's a little agit for the never believers, here's a little ghost for the offering....."

"The One I Love" is taken from R.E.M.s fifth album "Document" in 1987 and was their first hit single, reaching #9 in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and #16 in the UK. The record has ironically become a popular radio dedication due to it's misinterpreted refrain, but the repeated lyrics hint at a darker meaning. Michael Stipe stated in an interview with Musician Magazine in 1988, that "It's very clear that it's about using people over and over again....."
