remfeat Check Out: R.E.M.s final holiday single

Now that R.E.M. have called it quits, so too does its fan club. But not without one last gift. Since 1998, the group has offered holiday exclusives to its die-hard fanbase; in the past, this has led to Christmas cover songs, 7″ singles, and rare tracks with former drummer Bill Berry. This year, however, R.E.M. has issued a pair of live tracks stripped from their final tour: “Perfect Circle”  (recorded 8/30/08 in London) and “Life and How To Live It” (recorded 11/18/08, the group’s final concert). Check out both at Slicing Up Eyeballs.

Don’t forget, the group’s latest collection, Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage: 1982-2011, is currently in stores.
