During their performance at Primavera Porto yesterday, frontman Paul Westerberg announced that The Replacements had played what he called their final show, implying that the legendary alternative/punk rock act has split up again. Reports say that Westerberg described the group as “lazy bastards to the end” after admitting that they chose to stay in their hotel rather than soundcheck for the gig.
In over the last few months, The Replacements debuted two new songs, “Poke Me in My Cage” and “Whole Foods Blues“, which lead to speculation that a new record was in the works. The band, who was defunct from 1991 to 2012, last released the covers EP Songs for Slim in 2013, which was made to help pay medical bills for their former guitarist Slim Dunlap.
