Clear Red 12" Vinyl EP! The Reunion of Westerberg, Tommy Stinson & Chris Mars! Two Original Slim Dunlap Songs + 3 Covers!

The Replacements are an American rock band formed in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1979, and are considered pioneers of alternative rock. The band was composed of guitarist and vocalist Paul Westerberg, guitarist Bob Stinson, bassist Tommy Stinson, and drummer Chris Mars for most of their career. Following several critically acclaimed albums, including Let It Be and Tim, Bob Stinson left the band in 1986 and the band experienced several line-up changes; Slim Dunlap joined as lead guitarist and Steve Foley replaced Chris Mars in 1990.

The Replacements' music was influenced by classic rock artists such as The Rolling Stones, Faces, Big Star, Slade, Badfinger, Lou Reed and The Beatles as well as punk rock bands such as The Ramones, Johnny Thunders, Dead Boys and The Clash. Unlike many of their underground contemporaries, the Replacements played "heart-on-the-sleeve" rock songs that combined Westerberg's "raw-throated adolescent howl," with self-deprecating lyrics.

THE SONGS FOR SLIM series was constructed in order to raise money for former Replacements guitarist Slim Dunlap’s medical costs, the result of a massive right brain stroke he suffered in 2012. Fellow Replacements members Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson reunited and recorded an original Slim Dunlap song plus three additional covers. Original Replacements drummer Chris Mars also recorded a Slim cover and all five tracks were combined on a limited edition run of 250 numbered copies of 10” vinyl EPs. These EPs were auctioned in January and raised a staggering $105,743.42.

"The EP features Westerberg, Stinson, drummer Peter Anderson and Westerberg's touring guitarist Kevin Bowe covering Dunlap's 'Busted Up,' Leon Payne's 'Lost Highway', 'Everything's Coming Up Roses' from the Broadway musical Gypsy, and Gordon Lightfoot's 'I'm Not Sayin''. Mars contributes a solo version of Dunlap's 'Radio Hook Word Hit'. The website has this listed as 'the first new Replacements release since 1990's All Shook Down.'" - Jenn Pelly, Pitchfork
