Too Much Effing Perspective: Twin/Tone Records Peter Jesperson – The Fifth Beatle of The Replacements

Every performer who’s ever been on the road has at least one bizarro story that could have been pulled straight from the iconic music mockumentary, This Is Spinal Tap. Co-hosts Allen Keller and Alex Hofmann delve deep into their guests’ harrowing, humbling, and hilarious Spinal Tap Moments uncovering universal truths along the way.

Twin/Tone Records co-founder and The Replacements’ original manager Peter Jesperson gives us a few doses of thunder when he tells us about the origins of the “Mats” rivalry with REM; why the band threw some of their master tapes into the Mississippi River; and what legendary group Paul Westerberg told Peter was not the “be all and end all.”
