Way back in 1988 R.E.M. started rewarding members of their fan-club with a special holiday release. This may have been a Christmas song, a live recording or a completely new track. The now defunct band have offered up fans one final gift from the bottom of their hearts. Late last week the band sent out some recordings from their final ever performances as a little gift. The good folk at Slicing Up Eyeballs have been kind enough to upload the aforementioned streams. First up is a recording from a London show in August, 2008 of "Perfect Circle". Secondly you can enjoy "Life and How To Live It" which was actually the penultimate song at R.E.M.’s final ever concert, ever. That show was way back in '08. Time flies huh? Anyway, happy Holidays from R.E.M.
