By Ed Bumgardner, Winston-Salem Journal, N.C. Aug. 7--Bassist Michael Lachowski knows that his band Pylon, along with pals The B-52s and R.E.M., helped make Athens, Ga., the center of the alternative-rock universe. He also is quick to point out that Pylon, unlike the other two bands, was never really geared toward immersing itself into the dubious inner-workings of show business that brought about fame and fortune.

The work of the Athens, Ga.-based band (with permanent and original members singer Michael Stipe,...

By Jonathan Cohen NEW YORK (Bllboard) - For the second time in a year, R.E.M. reunited with original drummer Bill Berry on stage in the group's Athens, Ga., home base. The action took place Saturday at the end of a performance by the Minus 5, which features R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck.

By Paul Sexton LONDON (Billboard) - It has often been a rocky decade, but Oasis has rolled with it. Reinvigorating the dreary British music scene of the pre-Britpop 1990s, these dropouts hailing from a Manchester, England, housing project sparkled and soared like the champagne supernova of their famous song. Steadfast in the belief that it is better to risk a bad opinion than excite no opinion at all, the band raced up the rankings in U.K. rock without looking back. When it hit the...
