I always remember Hootenanny as a bit too jokey. In reality that's only really a couple of brief tracks and the highs are high. Without giving much away, almost all of it was pretty well represented on tracks ballots.

Also, fun fact: There's a typo in the opening post, as it was written in advance and didn't account for a ballot arriving slightly later. There were in fact 31 album ballots, not 30.

hootenanny is definitely transitional, partly still trying to be a punk band, partly shouting no way, partly laughing at the predicament, fully, um, stuck in the middle. but i think "run it" is as good as they ever punked, "color me impressed" is a clear arrow forward, and "mr. whirly" is pretty much a career declaration that they're not going to take this shit seriously, ever, no matter how badly someone wants them to. a weirdly quintessential mats album for me.

fact checking cuz, Tuesday, 6 October 2020 23:35 (three weeks ago) link

and pttm is where end up deciding to take this shit seriously in spite of their own worst intentions, and is the beginning of their downfall, and is still a fantastic album.

A White, White Gay (cryptosicko), Thursday, 15 October 2020 15:38 (two weeks ago) link

But The Who comparisons are belabored because if any parallel between them and any classic British Invasion band exists it would be with The Kinks: song-centric where The Who were more kinda about chops, plus the fact that they were kinda unsuccessful while The Who were stadium kings. That’s how I always saw it anyways.

― rattle, Thursday, October 15, 2020 9:45 AM (one hour ago) bookmarkflaglink

Good point, although the Kinks had more, and bigger, hit singles in the US (five top ten records between 1964 and 1983, while the Who only managed one, in 1967). But it's true, the Kinks never played as large venues in the US as the Who. The Kinks also had comparably volatile personalities to the Replacements, e.g., Mick Avory hitting Dave Davies on the head with his hi-hat stand during a show.

Montgomery Burns' Jazz (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Thursday, 15 October 2020 15:55 (two weeks ago) link

There is something from Bob Mehr in the book about Paul's songwriting trying to imitate Pete and The Who by having a few bars of guitar intro, particular during the Tim era, but I don't quite get it.

wow...just...I mean, if I'd been at this show, my head would've exploded. Thank you, campreverb. Mehr's book mentions Chris Mars seeing the Who in St. Paul in 1976 and being "annoyed by Keith Moon." Not sure if Mars disliked Moon's playing, but he does really well here.

Paul initially wanted Townshend to produce Don't Tell A Soul. Pete probably thought, "I don't have to deal with Keith Moon anymore; why would I put myself in a situation where I have to grapple with four of him?"

That was my understanding re: "Heartbeat, It's a Lovebeat." I think you're right about "20th Century Boy" though.

eg. https://www.discogs.com/The-Replacements-I-Will-Dare/release/1164440

Wonder if I saw them do “Heartbeat is a Lovebeat” back then or if somebody had a bootleg of the outtake.
