Gina Vivinetto’s Greatest Hits

All hail Pylon!

Here’s my favorite segment of Athens, Ga.- Inside/Out, a great documentary released in 1987 about the burgeoning music scene down in Athens, Georgia during the late 1970s and early 1980s. It’s the town that famously gave us the B-52s and R.E.M.

It also gave us another one of my favorite bands, Pylon. This is the portion of the documentary that features footage, tunes and interviews with the band, who reunited a few years ago and have been playing dates for lucky fans in select cities.

Vanessa Briscoe Hay was a big inspiration to me when I first started singing in bands. Back when I was young and feisty and not afraid to scream. Now, I’m like a church mouse.

    that was fascinating. i’ve never heard of pylon (even though i’ve loved r.e.m. for a long time) so i’m extra glad i watched this. is she ok, though? she seems a little… hazy. regardless, thanks for the post.
