Back in 1992 the Replacements had recently broken up, and bassist Tommy Stinson was without a band for the first time since he was 14. Enter Bash and Pop’s debut, Friday Night Is Killing Me—a forceful, infectious slice of the spit-and-vinegar rock he’d honed during his tenure with the ’Mats. More than 20 years later, Bash and Pop has released a sophomore record, Anything Could Happen. It’s clear that time has been kind to the prolific and ever-in-demand Stinson. Teeming with fantastically straightforward cuts of boozy rock abandon, the tracks are full of strong, scornful vocal deliveries and rowdy rock ’n’ roll bravado. Stinson’s songs are the more natural extension of the ’Mats (with no disrespect to Paul Westerberg), which makes sense, given that some of the ones on the new album were originally written to be ’Mats songs prior to the dissolution of their successful reunion a couple years back.
