    Saw those guys at London Victory Club in downtown Tampa back in the 80's. I agree with you, no idea why they didn't make it. Great sound and great live. I know they got lumped in to the whole Athens scene but they actually were an Atlanta band. My guess they just got grossly overshadowed by REM and they probably didn't have good management. I could easily see a record company telling them to make REM music and that wasn't Guadalcanal's sound.

    I think they're back at it again, as are the dB's. Maybe the disappearance of REM will bring some of their great contemporaries back to the scene. The dB's recent album is surprisingly good.

    I recall seeing something about the dB's recently but never really listened to them back in the day. I saw Guadalcanal Diary after 2x4 was released. After their show, I ended up having a conversation with them and they were the nicest bunch of folks but I could tell they were a little frustrated being overshadowed by their friends REM. I felt bad for them so I helped them load their van as they had to do that themselves. It was late and they had a long drive to the next gig in Birmingham. Life on the road can be very tough.
