MP3: Download The Replacements’ 9/13 St. Paul Concert

mats1

Almost a hometown homecoming, yo…

By Uncle Blurt

Did ya catch the Replacements’ reunion yet? Are ya gonna? Let’s sing a chorus of “give me a ticket for an airplane…” whoops, wrong band. But right sentiment: so while you contemplate your next move, you can be listening to a pretty ace recording of the ‘mats performing the other night in St. Paul, courtesy the diehard fans over at the Big O Zine. The entire show is posted in MP3 format for free download, along with suitable-for-printing artwork should you be compelled to burn the gig to disc.

All the classic ‘mats tracks are present over the course of the nearly two hour show, and there are even some unexpected covers, like Sham 69’s “Borstal Breakout,” Hendrix’s “3rd Stone From The Sun” (well, sorta…), the Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back” and Chuck Berry’s “Maybelene.” With a rolling thunder jukebox like that, it’s almost like seeing the band way back in the day when the idea was to drink as much as they could and serve up as many covers as they could before they passed out…. It’s the ‘mats way, nuf sed.
