Get obsessed with The Replacements via new documentary, streaming free
The tragicomic story of Minnesota's greatest indie rock band, The Replacements, is the subject of filmmaker Gorman Bechard's new documentary, Color Me Obsessed, an apt title for a film about a band that continues to inspire cultish adoration to this day, despite having been more or less inactive for the last two decades.
The film chronicles the 'Mats' rise and fall through testimonials from some of their most noteworthy fans; everyone from Craig Finn to Tom Arnold, from Robert Christgau to Colin Meloy, and from Patrick Stickles to George Wendt. Yes, it's a veritable who's who of underdogs and slobs, plus George Wendt, who transcends any category you may try to box him into.
Vice Records' very own youtube channel, Noisey, is courteously taking a break from pieces about rappers interviewing other rappers and making fun of homeless drug addicts to stream Color Me Obsessed online for a limited time. Take a break and watch it below, or you'll never find out what George Wendt's favorite Replacements album is (we'd bet money that he's a big Pleased To Meet Me fan).
