Following the 1991 disbandment of punk greats the Replacements (who briefly returned a few years back, before fizzling out once more in 2015), and several years before his near two-decade tenure in Guns ‘N Roses (which only came to an end when the group’s classic lineup mounted a reunion last year), the great Tommy Stinson briefly fronted a pop rock project called Bash & Pop, whose debut album, 1993’s Friday Night Is Killing Me, came in the middle of their all too short two-year run. Stinson, better known as a bassist in his bigger bands, though an adept vocalist and guitarist in his own right, would go on to form similar and also short-lived project Perfect right after, before the GnR gig and some intermittent solo albums.
