Pelecanos on the ‘mats

4 Oct

In this week’s online edition, indie-rock tastemakers Magnet reprint a classic–Crime novelist supreme George Pelecanos’ ode to his favorite band, The Replacements.


Which naturally made me think of the ‘mats place in my own personal history.  They’re one of a handful of acts who, at one time or another could claim the spot as “THE MOST IMPORTANT BAND IN MY LIFE.”  Here they are–in alphabetical order.


The Beatles

Bob Dylan

Guided By Voices

The Hold Steady

Midnight Oil


The Replacements

The Rolling Stones
