  • So since I am spending the weekend in Bob Stinson's old apartment, I figured why not go on a Replacements jag. I forgot that the turn in sound from their first couple of records to Let It Be is really stark. Like, right from Track 1 "I Will Dare" they went from an above average garage hardcore band, to something you might hear on commercial radio and think, "Hey, this is awesome, I actually wanna go see this band!" I don't think there's a bad or repetitive song on it, but it is a much 'wetter' record.

    Then going into Tim, I can't say enough how hilariously demeaning and yet catchy "Waitress in the Sky" is, having been obviously written from the perspective of an entitled male frequent flier at the tail end of the era when smoking was still allowed and "accidentally" spilling your drink in your lap was a thing.

      • Stevie Nicks and Billy Joel were fantastic tonight. Stevie in particular played what people wanted to hear, a near perfect set. Billy hit all his classics

          • Jesus…. Okay 2 tree things here:

            Now And Then - John Lennon demo now a full-fledged Beatles song. Chef’s kiss! A+!!! I love Lennon and this is a great song and I would like to think he wrote it for Paul.

            the Replacements reissue of TIM!!! THIS is simply a completely different album. And vastly superior to what was already great. I WILL be shelling out the $ to get this vinyl because it’s that great.

            Foo Fighters. I can’t vouch for the new album (yet) but damn…the 2 songs they played on SNL a few weeks back were VERY good imo.

              The first one just sounded like they put all their prior songs in a blender and hit puree.

              The latter did not leave me whelmed.

              I love the band but that performance seemed really tired and lame to me. YMMV.

                I bought the vinyl but haven’t listened through yet.

                the back cover looks like they went spinal tap but instead of “none more black” it’s “none more white” and you can barely read the song titles.

                        • Hall gets a restraining order against Oates.

                          I grew up thinking these guys both sucked but Hall's great podcast has shown me that it was Oates who sucked twice.

                            Little to pop to be great but that show he did where Hall brought other musicians to his house to play was ok.

                            • Ordered the Soundgarden b-sides LP on vinyl. The song “Cold *****” may be Chris Cornell’s best vocal performance. It’s a b-side from the badmotorfinger sessions.

                              also, Aerosmith single with “Head First” as the b-side, I always loved that song despite the childish lyrics.
