Possible new Replacements project in the works
Chris Reimenshneider is reporting that Replacements members Tommy Stinson and Paul Westerberg have begun "messing around" in the studio with local producer and drummer Michael Bland. From the Pop Life blog:
He sounded enthusiastic about the sessions and said, “It was a lot of fun.” When I asked if they did any recording, though, he answered, “Nah, that’s getting to first base. We’re sort of still in the dugout chewing gum.” As for the general state of the two former ‘Mats mates relationship, he said, “We’re good friends, and I’m sure we’re going to work together again.”
The last time Westerberg and Stinson recorded together was in 2006, when they laid down two tracks for Don't You Know Who I Think I Was?: The Best of the Replacements with Chris Mars.
In other 'Mats news, Paul Westerberg has released another online-only track, "Bored of Edukation," which is available for 89 cents through Amazon.
