This is a really great album!
Avatar 12:22pm Cecile:

I was nervous about reading Trouble Boys due to my own ambivalence about the Replacements (embittered former super-fan). But it sounds like it's unflinching, so that might be good.
  12:24pm Jeffy Jazz:

Wouldn't it be great if Alice Cooper, KISS, David Cassidy, et al, got together to do an album of Mats covers?
Avatar 12:24pm Joe B:

embittered super fan - that describes me and I'm sure many others!
  12:25pm Jeffy Jazz:

@Cecile: Did you happen to read the Mats book that came out around 2007-08? I never did and I was wondering if it was any good or not.

I am liking everything I hear from Chris Bolger.
  12:35pm Bill in W.O.:

The On and Ons record is by far the best record of 2015 that I didn't hear until 2016. And maybe anyway.
Avatar 12:36pm Cecile:

Jeffy Jazz, I didn't because it was just interviews with the fans. The author didn't get the band to cooperate. Being an embittered ex-super-fan, I really didn't need to see all that again.
  12:37pm Jeffy Jazz:

Thanks for the heads up @Cecile! btw: I've been an embittered super fan, too, since the first time I saw them. They opened for the DBs at City Gardens in Dec. of '84. It was a (relatively) sober show and they were great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38pm coelacanth:

hey, Joe, did you not play your "theme song"? (did i not hear it somehow?)

  12:42pm Amy:

"Embittered super fan" is a good way to put it. I'm also annoyed at the book because I only get a passing mention in the story of That Show in Houston, and not even an individual one.
Avatar 12:43pm Cecile:

They tended to kind of step on people's hands on their way up.
  12:43pm Amy:

(I meant "embittered EX-super fan," of course.)
  12:44pm Jeffy Jazz:

@Amy: Was it the infamous Lawndale Art Annex show??
Avatar 12:45pm Cecile:

One of my favorite 'mats albums is Pleased to Meet Me because it's so bilious.

I think in a lot of ways the 'mats were like the Chance the Gardner of rock. They were blanks in a lot of ways, we projected a lot of things that weren't there on them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45pm Ken From Hyde Park:

An idea just occurred to me. On Memorial Day, maybe an hour or two (11AM - 1PM, for example) of an overlapping "Joe vs. Joe Throwdown Special" with Joe McGasko. Clay & Fabio did that once or twice.
  12:46pm Jeffy Jazz:

I didn't see that one, but I saw them in 1987 at Cafe Mode, which actually had a different name by then, I think. All very hazy memories...
Avatar 12:46pm Cecile:

"I owe you nothing"

I guess so.
  12:46pm Amy:

@Jeffy Jazz, that's the one. I was in the wading pool with Paul and Tommy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46pm coelacanth:

i was never a super fan and i was never embittered; i just really liked some of the material and didn't so much like other. i never heard about their socio-politics.
-i still play them though, including in the bar on the jukebox. (last night i played "lost highway", but that's because it didn't have the mekons' version.)
Avatar 12:47pm Cecile:

Well, I envy you. I felt like in a lot of ways they broke my heart.
  12:48pm Jeffy Jazz:

@Amy: Ha ha! That's great! Damn, I wish I could've been there. I was still living in PA.
Avatar 12:48pm Cecile:

I am still a big Chris Mars homer though. Great artist. And his departure happened at a good time.
  12:49pm Amy:

I've put off finishing the book because going back to that time makes me feel weird.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:49pm coelacanth:

oh, Cecile. that's sad. i've felt that way with a few bands.
Avatar 12:50pm Cecile:

Yeah, I can understand Amy. I have a few stories I'm not going to share anymore, because it just makes me sad.
  12:50pm Jeffy Jazz:

@Amy: Yeah, it feels like at least 3 lifetimes ago for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:51pm ChrisB.:

Saw them in '86 at The Stone Pony. Slim Dunlap had just joined the band. Not super drunk, but I remember the set list was a mess.
Avatar 12:51pm madman:

  12:51pm Amy:

Glad you guys get what I was trying to say, @Cecile and @Jeffy Jazz.
Avatar 12:55pm Cecile:

I can't even read interviews or go to reunion shows. They talked so much shit about the fans who didn't like the limp last couple of albums, that I was all "ok, fine. Go on without me." They were like a charismatic bad boyfriend.
  12:57pm Amy:

Ha, that's brilliant, Cecile. The ultimate charismatic bad boyfriend.

sanitized perspective, too.
Avatar 1:12pm Cecile:

what Amy said.
  1:16pm Dave Wright:

Joe...How about the City Gardens story where Stinson goes out drinking with 2 fans , come back and are drinking in the parking lot when one of the fans says Isnt that you guys playing onstage right now?!?! Led to Stinsons 1986 onstage firing , not sure if that's covered in the book , gotta get it !
Avatar 1:16pm Cecile:

Well, that's a good thing. I'm glad to hear that.
  1:17pm Amy:

Just thinking about Bob makes me sad. He was a gentle soul who didn't get a great hand dealt to him in life.
Avatar 1:17pm Cecile:

I know that there was a similar story in Ann Arbor. A former acquaintance of mine hopped onstage and did a couple of songs until Bob came back.
  1:18pm Charley:

Bob, what was the most difficult part of the whole writing process?
  1:19pm Amy:

Interesting. I knew their backgrounds pretty thoroughly for years, but it didn't affect my fandom.
Avatar 1:22pm Cecile:

and Lorne Michaels is a control freak in good and bad years.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:22pm Uncle Michael:

I haven't read the book yet. Was Peter Jesperson interviewed for it?

yeah, he sure was. There's big section on Amazon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:23pm drr:

hmmm....best SNL performance has to be The Specials
  1:24pm Amy:

Yup. I haven't read the part about Peter's firing yet, though. Talk about painful...
  1:24pm KP:

I saw them when Bob was still there at a weird club on top of a hill in Oyster Bay, LI. They did the Alice Cooper hangman stunt routine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:25pm Stevel:

Peter Jesperson was a really nice guy. I didn't really know any of the band, but I'd talk with Peter when they came through. I'd bring him pictures from the last time I'd seen them. Some of them survived over the years, which was cool.

that's something Paul has done a lot in his past, dismissive/grateful.
  1:25pm Jeffy Jazz:

@drr: And Elvis doing Radio, Radio!
  1:26pm Amy:

Peter is one of my favorite people on earth. And Paul can minimize his contribution now, but he used to ring Peter's doorbell and leave before he answered, and Peter would find a demo or a home recording on his doormat. They revered him.

Peter was so excited when Paul got to solo open for Yorma Kaulkadan (sp?), which is mentioned in the book. He really believed in Paul's songwriting and overall abilities.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:38pm Stevel:

First saw them open for The Damned (I've told this story before.) I was really looking forward to The Damned, who were fine, but the Replacements blew them off the stage. Tommy seemed to never stop jumping. It was awesome.
  1:38pm Amy:

Was that at O'Cayz?
Avatar 1:38pm Cecile:

I think the horns worked great on Pleased to Meet me.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40pm paul b:

My freshman year at Maryland (fall 1982), as I was getting to know people in my dorm the guy across the hall from me whispered conspiratorialy "I have a rock band living in my basement" I instantly pictured some "it puts the lotion on its skin" scenario -- which was odd because that movie hadn't come out yet. Turns out it was a band I hadn't heard of called the Replacements who were playing at the 9:30 club. Latter that day we met over at the WMUC record library and he played Sorry Ma and Stink for me. I don't think that moment ever left me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40pm Stevel:

They usually played at Merlyns (RIP). O'Cayz wasn't as busy at that point.
  1:40pm Amy:

I hated it when people talked about wanting to see one of the crappy drunk shows. Those shows were exactly not the point of the replacements.
Avatar 1:42pm Cecile:

Yeah. the point was what are they going to do, and what are you going to take away from it. I saw some tight shows that were full of fire, and some that were rote.
  1:42pm Jeffy Jazz:

Joe, if you were at the City Gardens show in Dec. of '84, I believe it was the end of that part of the tour with the DBs. They might have been a little ragged. But my 20 year old self really dug it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:42pm Stevel:

Paul B: that could be hard on a basement!
Avatar 1:43pm Cecile:

  1:45pm Lou:

The Beacon '87 show was the best!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:46pm Stevel:

They played two nights running one week. The first night was pretty limp. Even I thought so. The next night, Peter had Paul play/not play (who remembers) guitar, and they just blew the roof off. At the end of the last set, the slam-dancing crowd was actually shouting "encore!" Paul cocked his head, paused at the mike and said his most sarcastic "plueease", and walked off. Priceless.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:50pm Stevel:

FYI, having listened to most of Bob's presentation in Chicago on Saturday, I'm hearing new stories and thoughts today. Very worth getting out to see him.
  1:51pm Amy:

Good to know, SteveI. Thanks.
Avatar 1:52pm Cecile:

I also see there being a little bit of jealousy on Paul's part - Chris had more irons in the fire than he did.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:01pm coelacanth:

'got to step out early. Excellent interview! Thanks Joe and Thanks Bob Mehr.
i'll return for the rest.

  2:33pm johnk77:

Deal: You could open up CMJ and there was this little picture of the country, and you could look at the college stations, ’cause college stations, that’s all there was to listen to. Well, there were modern-rock stations that played the Cure, the Fixx, Siouxsie and the Banshees. But if you wanted to hear Hüsker Dü or the Replacements or anything like that, you had to listen to college radio.
