Never has Paul Westerberg, frontman of ’80s indie legends The Replacements, been showered as much with the “We’re not worthys” as he has from sturdy plagiarists The Hold Steady. But like all the best copyists, they don’t just replicate, they transport you back to the flannel shirt-wearing ’80s US scene, never more so than on ‘Stuck Between Stations’. A thrilling guitar pile-up of rock memorabilia.
