75% Less Fat

Genre: Rock; Lead Performer: Chris Mars; Producer (group): Island, Smash

Since drummer Chris Mars quit the Replacements in 1990, he has done lots of fishing and camping. His second solo release, 75% Less Fat (produced, sung, and played by Mars), features songs that reflect his new lifestyle. In ”Car Camping” he sings, ”The fishing is good/We’ll piss in the woods” — followed by a real, live belch. This might’ve been funny out of a snotty punk in ‘79, but now it rings like any old redneck’s crusty commentary. The music follows suit in beer-commercial-like riffs and bouncy, generic rhythms that, at best, sound like cheap imitations of his own musical past. D
