Matt talks to Michael Stipe and Mike Mills of R.E.M. about key first moments in the band's history, including their very first gig, release and TV performance. They reflect on the recording and impact of some of their albums, from the ground-breaking mid-80s releases Murmur and Reckoning, to the albums that sent them onto the world stage; Green, Out of Time and Automatic for the People.
