The Minutemen: Men At Work

Fred Mills, Harp, September 2005

DECEMBER 13, 1985: I'm backstage at the Park Center in Charlotte, N.C., where, about an hour ago, the final concert of R.E.M.'s Fables of the Reconstruction tour ended. Around me in various stages of disrepair are R.E.M., opening act the Minutemen and assorted friends, fans and well-wishers.
