Gimme Noise contributor Andrew Flanagan dug up some old bootlegs from the Minneapolis music scene as part of his gig working for the Daily Swarm, and there are quite a few little nuggets nestled into the old recordings that are now streaming online.
[jump] Probably the weirdest recording is of the members of the Replacements standing on the side of the road in god-knows-where trying to hitch a ride and singing "Give us a ride, fuckers!" in four-part harmony. Amazing.
Other highlights include a bootleg of an early-'80s Replacements show at the 7th St. Entry, a Public Image Limited show from 1982, and clips of locals the Psychenauts and the charmingly named Jefferson's Cock.
Check out all the bootleg clips over on the Swarm.
