If he was from Venus
Would he feed us with a spoon?
Well before Nirvana came along, there was this band that sounded raw as punk, with Paul Westerberg's husky boiling nails in the throat vocals that had a fucking awesome sense for melody. I was totally blown away in the 80's by this band who with the combination of all memebers that created a chaotic yet melodic sound that was so needed at the time, merging the 2 worlds of punk & pop in the rawrest, honest package. The Replacements will always be an influence in my life.
