The Replacements, a band that many might say was one of the greatest lesser known bands in the world, will be featured in a documentary DVD being released Nov 20th titled Color Me Obsessed. A Gorman Bechard directed film will document the impact of the band on the scene with interviews including journalists, fans, and musicians. Hopefully some rare footage of the band will be included in there as well.
If you aren’t familiar with The Replacements, my immediate reaction might be shame on you, but instead I almost feel sorry for you, for not knowing the glorious mess of a band. The glorious mess of band whose greatness fell short of the industry’s measurement of a band’s success, but left a lasting impact on many who find success measured in different terms.
