The Buck Starts Here

You will recall late last year when R.E.M. officially called it a day.  Sad news for music lovers but news today that guitarist Peter Buck has reportedly lined up his first solo full-length endeavour.  (While Buck has released numerous albums with side projects such as the Baseball Project, the Minus 5,Tuatatra, Hindu Love Gods and as a member of Robyn Hitchcock's band, he has never released a solo record proper.)

From the Guardian:

One of the band's long-time collaborators, guitarist Scott McCaughey, told Seattle's KIRO 97.3: "Peter's making this record of his." McCaughey offered no further details about the project, saying simply it will be "pretty 'out'". Buck will probably sing on the record, but is unlikely to sing in concert. He is also considering releasing the LP on vinyl only, with no download version.

Looks like 2012 should be lining up to be a stellar music year.

A vinyl-only release, with no accompanying concert tour (or at least no singing tour)? It does sound as though it will be a very specific niche album. One for the collectors.
