Have a listen below to a live acoustic version of a brand new Trestles tune. ‘Michael’ will be recorded for the band’s second album in 2012 –
but as a little tribute to REM, we’ve posted a recent live clip of Al O’Hare singing the song in Mathew Street’s View Two Gallery.
Here’s a little explanation from Al too: “I was gutted when REM split… but I’d had this tune written for a while before that. We’re uploading now as a little tribute to REM – it’s very much in demo form at the minute and will change shape and colour before we record it with The Trestles. The song tells the story of how REM changed my life. Do you remember the first big gig to have an impact on you? This was mine. The sights, sounds and smells of a big live event did something to my being and I’ve never been the same since! Enjoy the song…”
* Our gig at The Pilgrim, Liverpool on October 21st has been postponed. Stay tuned for further details of our next live shows asap… *
