One thought on “Replacements Video from 1981”

  1. These are amazing videos. First, the band appears to be relatively sober. Then, they’re incredibly clean-cut. Paul and Tommy have short little haircuts they would never sport again. Even Bob looks almost preppy in a buttoned plaid shirt. And the band is all business — no self-deprecation, just straight-ahead speed and energy. For anyone who saw them later in their career, these videos are a revelation. The Replacements look like Boy Scouts and play like pure punks. It makes you all proud, like a fond mother (me anyway).
