Pitchfork reports that alt-rock legends The Replacements are reconvening (well, to the extent they can, only three are alive) to record new material for an upcoming best-of on Rhino:
Color us fucking impressed: Original flannel gods the Replacements have
recorded their first new material since 1990. According to a press release from
Rhino Records, 3/4 of the original lineup (and the only surviving ones), Paul
Westerberg, Tommy Stinson, and Chris Mars, reconvened last December in
Minneapolis to record two new Westerberg-penned tunes, “Message to the Boys” and “Pool & Dive,” for the upcoming Replacements compilation Don’t You Know Who
I Think I Was?: The Best of the Replacements.
