Juliana Hatfield dedicated an entire chapter of her 2008 book When I Grow up: A Memoir to Paul Westerberg, and in interviews, she frequently talks about his and the Replacements’ influence on her. She was asked to open for Westerberg on a solo tour after the Replacements broke up, but the tour ended up being canceled after he threw out his back. Now, however, they’re finally in a band together, The I Don’t Cares, and they’ve just released their first single. Their debut album, Wild Stab, doesn’t have an official release date yet, but for now, you can listen to “1/2 2 P” below via Pitchfork.
Wild Stab is out sometime in the near future on Dry Wood Music.
