Bash & Pop reissuing their debut with 18 bonus tracks (listen to one)


Tommy Stinson‘s post-Replacements band Bash & Pop returned this year with Anything Could Happen (on Fat Possum), the loooong-awaited followup to their 1993 debut Friday Night Is Killing Me. On September 8, Friday Night Is Killing Me will receive an expanded reissue via Omnivore Recordings. The reissue will have 18 bonus tracks, photos, and new liner notes by Trouble Boys: The True Story of the Replacements author Bob Mehr. The reissue was produced by the Replacements’ former manager Peter Jesperson and Omnivore’s Cheryl Pawelsk. One of the bonus tracks, a home demo of “Never Aim To Please,” premieres in this post. Here’s what Peter Jesperson tells us about it:

A home recording that is a true harbinger. Both a sign-post and a statement of intent from Tommy Stinson in the wake of the Replacements break-up. It heralds the start of his solo career and reeks of defiance and determination.
