    Default The Replacements 2013

    Boom! A new song emerges, well a cover, by the legendary Mats. To benefit their friend and ex-guitarist Slim Dunlap, part of their upcoming EP Songs For Slim, which is out digitally on March 5th and 12'' vinyl on April 16th. It's fucking awesome and they sound like they never left. After Paul told Rolling Stone last fall "we still rock like murder", I'm hoping for an active year for them.

    I liked the 2 new songs they recorded for the best of compilation they put out a few years ago. Is Chris Mars still not participating in the "reunion"? It would be nice to see them actually play some shows. With Josh Freese on drums, perhaps?

    Chris Mars says that he doesn't drum anymore and doesn't want to face the pressure of creating music full time. He's switched to painting and apparently does very well at it, but he's given the other guys his full support, apparently.

    Yeah I knew that much. I just read that he did contribute to the new EP, but not on drums. He plays a solo cover of a Slim Dunlap tune and contributed art to the EP.

    Has Paul performed live since he stabbed himself in the hand while cleaning up a candle?
    *based upon tedious fact checking.

    Has anyone listened to this yet? I'm on my first go thru and the Replacements tracks sound like the Replacements. I'm happy with that.

    From Wikipedia:

    "Westerberg severely injured his fretting hand in 2006, in an accident while trying to remove candle wax with a screwdriver leaving his ring finger on his left hand numb, and as of 2008 had since performed only one live show."
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.
