The Replacements were legendarily one of the most outrageous and shambling live bands ever. This is because of unhinged performances on stages both small and enormous — like, they're one of the only musical guests to ever be banned from Saturday Night Live as the result of an appearance where they switched clothes in the middle of the show, got stupendously wasted, and swore pretty much nonstop at the audience during their performance, which was far better behavior than usual for the band. If that's The Replacements' version of cleaning up for TV, you can only imagine just how insane these bootleg recordings of live performances in punk clubs, collected by the site Color Me Impressed, are. What follows is a fascinating collection of performances by a band that was just as often trashed as it was talented, and it makes for crucial listening for anyone who loves uncompromising, brilliant punk.
