Hudson's Tommy Stinson Reunites His Post-Replacements Band

With the Replacements having called it a day once again after their 2015 reunion tour, founding member Tommy Stinson has reactivated Bash & Pop, the band he fronted after the first ’Mats breakup in the early 1990s. In addition to Bash & Pop’s lone 1993 album, Friday Night is Killing Me, getting a vinyl reissue by Sire Records, the updated edition of the band has been recording a new album in the basement studio of Stinson’s home in Hudson, New York.

The apparently still-untitled follow-up album is set for release on the Fat Possum label in early 2017, and is available for preorder via a Pledge Music campaign. According to a press release, backers “have the chance to procure one-of-a-kind memorabilia items (plaid suits, bass guitars, etc.), as well as cool opportunities with Tommy and the band (he’ll officiate your wedding, they’ll come play a concert in your basement, etc.), and they can even be in the audience at Bash & Pop’s first show since the late 1900s, going off this January at the legendary 7th Street Entry in Tommy’s hometown of Minneapolis.”

Watch Bash & Pop live on “Late Night with David Letterman” back in the day:
