As one of the inadvertent architects of the Athens, GA scene and sound, Love Tractor, along with Pylon and R.E.M., was essential in staking out the jangly and dancey folk rock that would, andstill have, a huge influence on subsequent generations.
Love Tractor has grown and matured in the intervening years, and in the vein of its early work, has absorbed the sounds that it's heard and refractedthem through their own sonic prism to arrive at something truly unique."
And then there was Love Tractor, the ethereal pop band that was just as influential in drawing attention to the sleepy college town's storehouse of talent with college radio hit albums like 1983's Around the Bend and '87's This Ain't No Outer Space Ship.

 plug <> Love Tractor - The Sky at Night
In the mid to late 80s, Love Tractor was one of the Athens, GA bands that was playing alongside other Athens notables such as the B-52s, Pylon, Dreams So Real, and R.E.M. in the now-infamous 40 Watt Club.
When they formed in the early 80s, Love Tractor couldn't afford microphones, so they wrote only instrumental songs; they liked that kind of songwriting so much that their first three albums were all instrumentals.
That's what this album is to the Love Tractor brand: it is unmistakably a Love Tractor record, but it sounds as new and unique as it did 15 years ago.

Along with luminaries like R.E.M., the B-52's, and Pylon, Love Tractor helped establish the college town of Athens, GA, as a mecca of alternative music in the early '80s.
After several failed attempts at completing their "comeback" album, Love Tractor returned in 2001 with The Sky at Night, which featured original members Richmond, Wellford, and Cline; former R.E.M. drummer Bill Berry helped out with percussion chores.
In 2005, a new and revamped lineup of Love Tractor -- with Richmond joined by new members Billy Holmes, Ben Holst, Tom Lewis, and Darren Staley -- recorded a new album, Black Hole, which found Richmond and company exploring a new musical direction influenced by progressive rock.

 Off the Record | Love Tractor   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-19)
It’s fitting in a way that the Steely Dan of the mid-’80s Southern-pop revival have released their first album in 12 years right after Becker and Fagin got a Grammy for their comeback.
Love Tractor were a great live act, as their unlikely 1987 cover of the Gap Band’s " Party Train " suggested.
But at their best these precious college-radio darlings combined the herky-jerk of Pylon and the graceful arpeggios of early R.E.M. with a kind of icy, meticulous virtuosity: they were a bar band totally comfortable layering overdubs in a sterile recording studio.

 EvilSponge: Album: The Sky At Night by Love Tractor
You see, before their ten-year hiatus from recording, Love Tractor were generally known for their lack of vocals and strong instrumentation.
Like other instrumental bands, Love Tractor's music is not intended for loud dance parties, but it quickly treats the polite listener to both musical complexity and catchy tunes.
The story goes that when Love Tractor were in the mixing stage of the album, they asked Berry to check out Bright (since Berry played with Love Tractor back in the day before there was an R.E.M., they still consider him to be a member of the band).

 Cosmik Debris Magazine interviews Mark Cline of Love Tractor
They took the name Love Tractor and began gigging around town, playing their instrumental compositions that many believe were only instrumental because the band couldn't afford a PA system.
Over the course of the interview to come I learned that the secret to Love Tractor is simply this: if a song doesn't absolutely need something, leave it out.
That we're even discussing Love Tractor in the present tense is quite surprising to many.

Where were you the night Love Tractor played the Lingerie, the night they played the Music Machine?
Call it folk-surf, country impressionism or, as they like, "psychedelic porch-funk," the Tractor's airy, spidery, sinuous, soaring (in a manner sometimes reminiscent of Jersey's suburban Feelies -- another not-quite-the-big-city-band), two-thirds-or-so instrumental, guitar-based reel pop is quite unlike anything coming out of Hollywood.

Though the B-52's were the first Athens band to achieve national prominence, their mainstream popularity was soon eclipsed by R.E.M. The future members of the band R.E.M. moved to Athens from Macon, Georgia, and began performing together as R.E.M. in 1980.
The band's style is dry and reflective, with a jangle pop sound and harmonies often compared to folk-rock band The Byrds; singer and songwriter Michael Stipe is known for obscure, allusive lyrics delivered in a monotonous drone Unterberger, pgs.

Monster (1994) was the notable exception, a slab of hard-rock that yielded at least two of their masterpieces, What's The Frequency Kenneth and Crush With Eyeliner.
B52's and R.E.M. were only the tip of the iceberg, though, soon followed by Pylon, Swimming Pool Q's, Love Tractor, each of them unusually unique and "diverse".
The Men Who Loved Music (1987) was still very eclectic, but focused more coherently on fl music, and the sound kept evolving, becoming more professional and cohesive on Electric Bird Digest (1991), until it achieved the elegant, surreal power-pop of It's Low Beat Time (1992).
