Friday Thing: Grandpaboy - Mono

This week's Thing comes from sometimes alter ego of Paul Westerberg, Grandpaboy, and his noisy 2002 album Mono

Released in conjunction with the less noisy Stereo, this record is a real hark back to classic Replacements in that it packages some rough punk 'n' roll alongside the super melodic, bittersweet Alex Chilton-esque tunes that Westerberg is so good at writing. Mono is undoubtedly my favourite of all his solo efforts, probably for that reason.
