The Replacements

they're getting the band back together! woo hoo!!!

I know, i know - it's not the WHOLE band, but gimme a break.

The thought of Paul and Tommy and whoever else is on the stage plugging in, turning up, and playing those songs has put a BIG smile on my face.

I got my tickets for Riot Fest chicago a few weeks ago based on what already appeared to be an awesome lineup (Violent Femmes, Blondie, Quicksand, Dinosaur jr, Bob Mould, Motorhead ,Guided by Voices, Public Enemy,, Best Coast, TOOTS!). The Mats headlining just pushed this thing WAY over the top.

Me and the lady went last year and it was a blast. A really great vibe at the park, lots of great food, and a fun ride on the ferris wheel watching some california punks rile up the crowd.

Back to the matter at hand - The Replacements - i woulda paid an arm and a leg to see Westerberg solo in the hopes of hearing some Mats live, but this is really fucking fantastic news. I've had their albums on repeat the past several days - Let it Be has me feeling like i'm 14 all over again. Awesome news.

Looks like a winner - i'll be digging deep into this to get pumped up for the late september live appearances...

Nice find, though it appears to mix solo Westerberg and Tommy's side project Bash & Pop (whose first album was very good) with the Mats stuff.

I got no problems that it mixes the solo stuff. I love pauls solo stuff. 14 songs gets filed with the Replacements at my house. "knockin on mine", "things" (oh those things...), and "down love" and "mannequin shop"... and a whole bunch of others are great tunes.

I don't know that Tommy Stinson solo album, tho. i'll have to check it out. thx for the tip.

It's things like this that make me really love the internet - it facilitates quirky fanaticism.

Watch 9 seconds of The Replacements rehearsing ‘Alex Chilton’ today in Minneapolis — slicing up eyeballs // 80s alternative music, college rock, indie

The Replacements, 'Alex Chilton' — rehearsal June 27, 2013 - YouTube

Sounds good, all 9 seconds of it. Way to stoke the fire, boys!

Did I say or imply it was a problem? I even complimented the Tommy stuff.

It just might be confusing to people who didn't realize the band broke up in 1991, as they're not clearly labeled as solo/other group shows.

You can shove your sarcasm up your ass.

You wish I was dead? My wife left alone and my child with no father? My body breathless and covered in dirt?

You actually hope for such an occasion? You've actively "wished" for it?

Wonderful. WTF?
