A couple years back, in the midst of the Replacements reunion, I found myself in a hotel room in the Twin Cities reviewing archival performance footage with Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson.
One of the things we watched was a 1991 rehearsal space concert for an audience of radio contest winners, which Warner Bros. filmed. The show featured an off-the-cuff rendition of the Dead Boys’ “Sonic Reducer” which Paul and Tommy seemed to enjoy.
Also, apologies to the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis if the room smelled like smoke when we were done. #thereplacements #thedeadboys #troubleboys
