The Replacements – 4 Remastered Albums (2008)

Paul Westerberg, Chris Mars, Bob Stinson, and Tommy StinsonThe Replacements – 4 Remastered albums (2008)

We just fucking love the visceral great music of The Replacements, and of course the great songwriting of Paul Westerberg that has continued into his solo career.

The Replacements formed in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1979. The band comprised guitarist and vocalist Paul Westerberg, guitarist Bob Stinson, bassist Tommy Stinson, and drummer Chris Mars for most of their career.

Tommy gets his tonsils out
Hi Susie, do you know what?
I’ve been in the hospital.
Now open wide, the doctor’s here
Everything is fine, got nothing to fear
Strap ’em down, we’re outta gas
Stop your bawling, you little brat.
Let’s get this over with, I’m off in a hour
Didn’t wash up, yesterday I took a shower
Get this over with, I tee off in an hour
My Cadillac’s running.

The Replacements began as a punk rock group, but began to incorporate other subgenres of rock music and became instrumental in the development of early alternative rock.

Following the critically acclaimed Let It Be (1984), the band signed to Sire Records, becoming one of the first American underground rock bands to sign to a major record label.

After Bob Stinson was fired from The Replacements in 1986, the band experienced several line-up changes; Slim Dunlap joined as lead guitarist and Chris Mars was replaced by Steve Foley in 1990.

Towards the end of their career, Westerberg exerted more control over the band’s creative output, recruiting session musicians for recording and writing all the original material.

The band disbanded in 1991, with the members soon pursuing various projects. The Replacements never experienced wider commercial success, but have influenced various alternative rock acts, including The Goo Goo Dolls, Green Day and Pavement.

The Replacements’ music was influenced by classic rock artists such as the Faces and The Rolling Stones. Unlike many of their underground contemporaries, The Replacements played “heart-on-the-sleeve” rock songs that combined Westerberg’s “raw-throated adolescent howl” with self-deprecating lyrics. The Replacements were a notoriously wayward live act, often performing under the influence of alcohol and trashing their instruments.
