Replacements Reunion

Wasn’t expecting this. Paul Westerberg, Tommy Stinson, and Chris Mars have recorded two new songs, “Message To The Boys” and “Pools & Dive” for (yet another) Mats retrospective Don’t You Know Who I Think I Was?: The Best of the Replacements, out 6/13.

As for a full scale reunion? Don’t hold your breath. Billboard quotes Paul:

“There’s probably no chance we’ll get back together again. It bothered me for like an afternoon but, it did bother me for that long because I was secretly excited and some of them weren’t.”

Blame Axl.
