Zeitgeist PhotoZeitgeist was a post-R.E.M. folk-rock band hailing from Austin, TX, and led by guitarists/vocalists John Croslin and Kim Longacre. However, after just one album (1985's Translate Slowly), the group was forced by a Minneapolis percussion ensemble called Zeitgeist to change its name. The group became the Reivers and recorded several more albums, breaking up in 1991; Translate Slowly has since been reissued under the Reivers' name. ~ Steve Huey, All Music Guide
