This review is from: The Replacements - Color Me Obsessed (2 discs) [DVD]  (DVD)
Who'd've thunk it, a music documentary that doesn't actually feature the band? Most people would be put off by this description, I guess though that most people who like The Replacements aren't 'most people.' I'm a 50 year old that thinks 'Bastards Of Young' is one of the best songs about growing up I've ever heard, who's heart is torn apart when listening to 'Unsatisfied' and is still trying to learn to play 'Answering Machine' on the guitar. This last month or two I've been sending Facebook messages to all my buddies who I know will love this movie, they all still have a fire in their hearts and are still as enthusiastic about music as they were in their early adulthood. Those of us across the pond who loved this band can now feel a little closer to them. I know there were a number of bands in the UK around the late 80's who really loved The Replacements: Mega City Four, The Senseless Things, Midway Still and my band The Seers. There were countless others. My band got to tour with The Ramones, Iggy Pop and The Red Hot Chili Peppers, so we were all part of the same world. This dvd is like a handshake across the water for me. I've never been to the US or seen The Replacements, but I did get the chance to see Hüsker Dü, The Moving Targets, Bullet LaVolta, The Pixies and REM. Two bands I'd loved to've seen would definitely have been The Replacements and Uncle Tupelo. I'm really hoping that one day someone does a UT documentary. Hey, maybe if we all think hard enough that'll happen too?

Hey Jason, I too wished I'd seen The Replacements but never did(I never got to see Husker Du either, my gig days only started in 1988). Fortunately, I did get to see Uncle Tupelo, as well as Bullet LaVolta, fIREHOSE, Soul Asylum & other such great bands all at the Duchess, Leeds. I also saw your band there a couple of times, still got your records in my collection as well - your review brought back some great memories! Thanks, mate.
