ROB SEZ: It's been too long since I've posted anything featuring the late, great Alex Chilton. A Replacements show with LX on several encores is a natural combo. 'Mats fans cannot forget the indelible "Alex Chilton", one of the band's signature songs. There are a couple of versions of this show floating around. This one is complete, and features the best sound quality available. HUGE THANKS to the Teddy Ballgame Archive and whoever shared this version of it.


  1. You're the shizizzle! Thanks!

  2. The only thing cooler than this would be if you could hear Craig Finn try and score some Tuinals in the background ala Jim Carroll on that one Lou Reed bootleg...thank you this is pure Rock history right here.

  3. Thanks. Very timely, reading "A Man Called Destruction" now. Mike.

  4. Thanks for all the comments, y'all. Holly G-W's book on LX is the bomb! Say, can anyone tell me what "Tuinals" are??

  5. lol about "tuinals" and hope all is well...if you're wondering, you're missed.

  6. Soooooo great to see this pop up! Thanks a LOT!

  7. Just checkin'--hope all's well

    1. Nice of you to check in, Eric. All is well, but WAYYYY too busy!

      Don't fret: the blog will return in November.

  8. Take your time--you've given us so much. These days I just start to get worried when there is radio silence...crazy days.


NO SPAM! I monitor all comments for spam & unrelated promo comments, all of which are deleted immediately. Don't waste your time...
