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.

Art, sport and the worst dance move ever

First of all, I want to apologize if anyone read my last blog and watched Dancing With The Stars. That was not my intent, and I’m truly sorry for all the pain and suffering I’ve caused. But let’s not forget who the true evildoers are — the people who make DWTS.

For those who didn’t see it, there were a couple Spïnal Tap references in the show. Firstly, when Kiss performed, the judges scores went “all the way to 11.”

Does the Hall think “Disco Sucks”?

Several months ago, when the RnR HoF announced its inductees, some over-eager journalist wrote an article about how the Hall hates disco. The very day, like some over-eager school boy. Now, with a respectful and decent delay, I am re-posting for you, dear reader. It includes videos of the best disco songs done by rockers in the hall.

And fear not that I will overburden you with an excess of posts. 2 in three days will not become a habit.
