The Replacements Release 24-Minute Jazz Improvisation
Recorded in October, "Poke Me in My Cage" arrived online last week to little fanfare

By Jon Blistein | December 23, 2014

The first piece of new, original music from the recently reunited Replacements may not be what fans expected from the snotty kings of college rock, but "Poke Me In My Cage" is a holiday gift nonetheless: A 24-minute improvised jazz track, which the band uploaded to Soundcloud last week with little fanfare.

Written by Paul Westerberg and bassist Tommy Stinson, "Poke Me In My Cage" was recorded at Wooly Mammoth Sound in Waltham, Massachusetts in October. The track features plenty of out-there guitar noodling, with Westerberg letting loose over relentless, scattershot drumming from Josh Freese, a session vet who's now the band's third drummer.
