New Replacements!

According to RollingStone.com, Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson got together in Minneapolis studio and recorded 4 cover songs (drummer Chris Mars declined). It’ll benefit Slim Dunlap, their guitarist from ’87 to ’91 who had a stroke in February. They’ll be releasing it on a 10″ vinyl EP (one would think, if they were really serious about selling copies, they might go with a more contemporary format, like, say tape cassette).

However, Paul Westerberg, said “We still rock like murder.” and that he is closer to a full reunion (with a tour and new material?) than he was 2 years ago.

A Replacements song just came on Pandora for me. It’s, like, kismet.
