The Replacements Bookshelf

There is a great thread over on the the forums at the Man Without Ties website titled "The PW / Mats Library Shelf" and I'm gonna plagirize it.

Here are my top 5 selections:

1) The Replacements - All Over But The Shouting - an Oral History by Jim Walsh

Great snippets of Mats lore

2) The Second Greatest Story Ever Told by Gorman Bechard

Fictional account of the daughter of God - and she's a Replacements fan - go figure

3) Our Band Could Be Your Life - Scenes from the American Indie Underground 1981 - 1991 by Michael Azzerad

The Mats influence Nirvana? - who wouldda guessed

4) 31 Songs by Nick Hornby

An homage to Westerberg's "Born for Me" encompasses chapter 12

5) Let it Be by Colin Meloy (in the 33 1/3 series)

Great book, not a huge fan of the author's band
