Seems lately I’ve had to be up early on Saturday after Saturday after Saturday. Tomorrow being no different, I, of course, gravitated toward “Friday Night Is Killing Me” by Bash and Pop.
Tommy Stinson’s first post-Replacements project, Bash and Pop, also drafted Steve Foley, the man who had filled in on the kit following Chris Mars’ departure from the ‘Mats. Tommy is able to create some pretty amazing songs when need be, even if his first true solo album didn’t show it. If you’ve never heard “Satellite,” the one song he wrote (that I’m aware of) during his Replacements’ tenure, you need to get your ears on it. It’s a revelation on his talent.
