Singer, songwriter, sideman, and frontman, Tommy Stinson has assumed many different roles in his remarkable 40-year musical odyssey. A co-founder of Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nominees The Replacements, Stinson started performing with the band at age 12, and saw the group through its epic 11-year run. Following the band’s break-up, Stinson would go on to lead his own critically acclaimed combos Bash & Pop and Perfect. For well over a decade, Stinson also served as the bassist and musical lieutenant to Axl Rose in Guns N’ Roses. In 2017, following a triumphant Replacements reunion, Stinson reformed Bash & Pop, and released the brilliant Anything Could Happen on Fat Possum Records. Currently working on several new recording projects, Stinson will be performing a rare run of solo shows in Europe and the U.S. this fall.

Bash & Pop “Friday Night Is Killing Me” – Two CD Expanded Reissue on Omnivore Records
While many are discovering Bash & Pop for the first time on their current tour, and via their new release, the time is right to reintroduce the record that started it all—Friday Night Is Killing Me.
New Bash & Pop Album “Anything Could Happen” on Fat Possum Records
I’m happy to announce my partnerships with Fat Possum Records and PledgeMusic to help bring new Bash & Pop music to you!
By ordering the record via PledgeMusic, you’ll become a part of the process of making of this record. Not only will you have the opportunity to buy the new record in whichever format is best suited for your listening pleasure, but you can also purchase one-of-a-kind items, merchandise and experiences only available here for a limited time! You’ll be able to purchase everything from high quality vinyl, cassettes, CD’s and MP3’s to instruments, lyric sheets, posters, framed photographs, and so much more. You can see our first show as Bash & Pop at the historic 7th Street Entry in Minneapolis, and I could even crash your wedding and flaunt my ordained status to officiate it!
As an added bonus, a portion of the proceeds of this campaign will benefit the Timkatec trade schools in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. As you may know, there is still a dire need for us to help these great young people learn how to rebuild their fractured nation. They desperately need any help that any of us can give, no matter the monetary amount. I chose this school after visiting their graduation in 2011 and seeing for myself what a big part of the long-term solution it is for the people and infrastructure of Haiti.
With that I leave you with a little taste of what’s to come.
Sign up! Play along! Be a part of the fun! And stay tuned for upcoming tour dates in a city near you!
The Replacements – ‘For Sale: Live at Maxwell’s 1986’ on Rhino Records
In February 1986, The Replacements performed a classic live show at Maxwell’s in Hoboken, NJ. That night, a 24-track mobile studio was on hand to record the quartet as they careened through a 29-song marathon that mixed tracks from all of the band’s albums to date with B-sides and covers. Until now, that pristine recording of the legendary performance has only been available in low-quality bootleg form. Even so, Pitchfork has called the show “a fiery, focused set that would make a true believer out of any skeptic.”
