The new album is quintessential TFC: melodies are equal parts heartwarming and heartaching, guitars chime and distort, keyboard lines mesh and spiral, harmony-coated choruses burst out like sun on a stormy day. 5/14/21
Almost 30 years after it was recorded, a long lost record album is seeing the light of day. “Riches to Rags” is a great collection of rock ’n’ roll songs featuring the guitar work of Bob Stinson, lead guitarist and founding member of the Replacements.
One of the earliest soundboard recordings of the band and featuring the original lineup of Paul, Bob, Tommy and Chris as captured by Twin/Tone’s mobile unit on January 23, 1981, at the 7th St Entry in Minneapolis, MN.
As the southern equivalent of the Replacements, the Ramones hillbilly (redneck) little brothers, no band delivered as much balls as the Satellites, who've never had an official live record. For a band who leaves it all onstage, that seems wrong.
