I've never heard anything else by them, or at least if I have I didn't know it. Apparently they're in Repo Man and on the soundtrack, and were featured in the first Decline of Western Civilization. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Plugz

Apparently he hooked up with him to do some demos in Malibu in '83, where they were also joined by Charlie Sexton (years before he started playing with Dylan regularly). I'm dying to hear those demos, especially considering the albums that followed Infidels (apart from Oh Mercy) were objectively his worst. What could have been.

I just love that Built To Spill cover of Jokerman. It has this menace in it that I just can´t get enough of. Also, Street Legal is top 3 Dylan in my book.

Yeah, I have an old Plugz lp due to my love of the film Repo Man. I think it's just a s/t affair if memory serves (and it probably doesn't). I'm sure Charks could probably remember better, as it seems he and I shared a similar album collection. I think they did Hombre Secreto, a latino version of Secret Agent Man among others.

They did a song "Blue Sofa" that is awesome.

Great tune! I wonder why it seems like all their stuff is out of print?

Not sure if anyone posted this, but it's one of the best from the I'm Not There soundtrack


Waylon's take on Don't Think Twice, It's Alright is really good. His voice is great for the material.


Also kinda dig X's take on Positively 4th Street


Apparently Westerberg does a version, too?

Quite the original take on this Street Legal tune

I'm biased but this is also one of the greats



The story seems a little too coincidental. Don't you think Paul knew Dylan would probably hear and decided to wreck the moment, Mats style?

He was producing an album by the Replacements, and Dylan, who was recording nearby, dropped in to check them out – at the very moment, as it happens, that Paul Westerberg, the Replacements’ leader, was launching into a Dylan parody of theirs called “Like a Rolling Pin.” Westerberg, his back turned to the control room, failed to notice Dylan standing there, and Litt, to Westerberg’s later chagrin, didn’t stop him.

When the song was over, Dylan, who was wearing a hoodie, said, “You guys rehearse much?,” and then walked out.
