Love Tractor, Magnapop
From Athens, Georgia, founded in spring 1980 by guitarists Mark Cline, Mike Richmond, and bassist Armistead Wellford. Like The B-52's, Pylon and R.E.M., Love Tractor is lauded by critics and music historians as one of the founders of the Athens, Georgia, alternative rock scene. Love Tractor toured extensively and recorded six critically acclaimed albums, consistently topping the college and alternative charts. Love Tractor was particularly known for their instrumental rock.
After a return to the public eye in the late '90s, Love Tractor released 2001's The Sky At Night and a single Trip to the Museum in 2016— a new album and releases are in the works.
