The 'Mats

4 posts in this topic

As much of a jazz guy that I am and I know that this may be the wrong place for this but...

...I love the Replacements.  One of the great underappreciated (?) groups from the '80s.  Just released was the "The Replacements For Sale: Live from Maxwell's 1986".  A total shambles and totally great. 

I recently saw a doc on the Clash, mainly about their rise from a punk band to a serious, politically active and influential rock band....

Fuck the Clash...Gimme a great rock band...Gimme the Replacements...

London's finest every time! Like the Replacements and solo Westerberg though just no way near as much

Thanks for starting this thread--I actually searched for a Replacements topic a few days ago to post about the new CD, but could find only one that referred to a recent vinyl box-set.  I picked this up last week and have listened to it a couple of times already... great stuff.  I saw them at the Patio in Indianapolis in 1985, gaining admission with a very bogus piece of ID (saw Husker Du there that same summer--great time to be a teenager into indie rock).  One of the great rock 'n roll bands of our generation (also went by Ardent Studios in Memphis recently, where the 'Mats recorded Pleased To Meet Me in 1986-87).
