The Replacements, Aragon Ballroom, Chicago, Illinois, 1989. 'With Special Guest Mr. Liquor'.
Excellent audience tape; even better performance. No knock on Bob, but Slim helped made this band (when they were on) a perfect Stonesy pop-tastic band that should have made millions and had their songs in the canon of all the classics. All the best to you and Chrissy and the kids, Slim.

I'm not disagreeing with you about Slim. But part of The Replacements charm live was the chaotic performance. It's like a Thunders show in a way.

Well, in the Slim years they were often even more chaotic and ramshackle (probably due to increased alcohol intake and better drugs). And conversely, the new live album (with Bob in '86) is very together but strikes me as a bit flat somehow, not sure why (it's still great tho). So go figure...

Daredevil said the new live album has a lot of the inbetween song banter cut compared to the boot. This is a real shame as that adds to the atmosphere and feel.

Yeah, I dunno if I've ever heard the boot, but it's considered a classic, and I can only guess that there was a lot of banter on it that was cut. And yeah, it really does add to a performance, especially with a band like the 'Mats or Johnny Thunders (providing they're playing reasonably well). Given the intensity of bands like that, you almost need time to de-compress after a song, especially if they're really on that night.

And lemme just say that's one of the reasons the Ramones were so exhausting to see (only saw them once in about 1980 or so): there was no banter, no real theatricality for relief, no great "audience rapport" - just "One, two, three, faw..." and it's on again.

I think the Ramones did that deliberately as they were going against the grain. Also they were really the band who were designed to play for 30-35 mins and just blow you away. I loved them so much and always will.

Oh for sure, mate. That was their "artistic statement", almost an anti-artistic statement. They didn't pause to tell you about how/why/what the song was written about, crack jokes, take the piss, be rude, heckle the audience or even interact with them. Just 'wham-bam-thank you ma'am' and outta there. That was their statement. 30 minutes and we're all niiice. Keef once said the same thing in an interview when the topic of Springsteen's marathon shows came up.

Wunderbar alright.
I always liked The Great Rock’n Roll Swindle as a song just spoilt by the singers. Shame there is no Sid version.

Jenny Lewis (from Rilo Kiley), 'Acid Tongue', 2010.
"Carpetbagger" is such a great song, featuring Elvis Costello.

Third guy from left, shave the unibrow and you got a pretty decent Joe Strummer lookalike.

Hello,

Pop Will Eat Itself - Anti-Nasty League. Semi-innovative. Semi-energetic. Enjoyable. PWEI is still around. This album is solid but they have more of a metal/industrial leaning. To me, that indicates their creative juices are running low (compare this to This is the Day...). Still, this is a decent listen.

I think he looks more like Bill Berry.
