Replacements Reunion

According to Aversion,the Replacements are back in the studio. Paul Westerberg, Chris Mars and Tommy Stinson recorded a couple new songs for an upcoming retrospective. The songs, “Pool and Dive” and “Message to the Boys” will appear on Don’t You Know Who I Think I Was, due out June 13 from Rhino Records. As you may remember, I sort of missed out on the Replacements. I didn't listen to them when I was in high school and college, so when I finally got around to them, I was too old to appreciate them. Plus, I had heard Paul Westerberg by himself, which didn't help things. But I know this is my fault, and I think they qualify for Advancement. This reunion, brief as it may be, is a good step in that direction.
