Peter Buck‘s been busy of late. When he’s not dropping hints to Rolling Stone about a possible compilation of R.E.M.’s previously released fanclub-only material, he’s playing with Tired Pony in London. We’ll have to wait until October to get Tired Pony’s new album stateside. In the meantime, take a gander at the gang’s latest video below. Remember that Buck is playing with Kevn Kinney at the 40 Watt in November so grab your tickets now.
