I'm not on iTunes, but if you are, buy Tommy's new single, as it benefits the Roundhouse Trust!

On June 3, 2015 Tommy recorded "Can't Be Bothered" with Luther Dickinson and Davey Lane in the basement of Roundhouse in London as part of their Young Creatives program.

More good news from Tommy (gigs, single + solo album):

http://tinyurl.com/qceckfe


Just a couple months after playing the last of the Repacements’ shows in Portugal, Tommy Stinson is already ready to hit the road again, this time fronting a new MVP-class band that will hit the Turf Club on Sept. 12 with Steve Selvidge of the Hold Steady on guitar and Guns N’ Roses drummer Frank Ferrer. The Minneapolis rock legend also just dropped a new charity single online and has two more new songs coming on a 7-inch single next month.

The one tune that’s out now, a bittersweet strummer titled “Can’t Be Bothered” (posted as a video below), can be downloaded via iTunes or Google Play to benefit Roundhouse Young Creatives, a youth arts fund created by the London studio where the song was recorded.

Stinson laid the tune to tape when the Replacements played the adjoining Roundhouse theater in early June. North Mississippi Allstars frontman and ex-Black Crowes guitarist Luther Dickinson also happened to be in London at the time and performed on the recording, as did Davey Lane of You Am I, the opening band for those ‘Mats shows. Dickinson also played on the sessions for Stinson's new album, which they recorded back in the States before the 'Mats headed to Europe.

Replacements fans, of course, know Dickinson’s prior ties to the Replacements: His late father was legendary Memphis producer and session man Jim Dickinson, who produced the ‘Mats’ 1987 album “Pleased to Meet Me” when Luther was just a 14-year-old punk hanging around the studio. You can hear his masterful 42-year-old slide-guitar work all over the new song.

Tommy explained in a press release, “I did it as a demo thinking I’d record it with Luther and the band, but the experience at Roundhouse was such a hoot that I decided to release it as-is.”

Stinson’s new lineup -- which also features bassist Cat Popper of Ryan Adams’ Cardinals and Jack White’s Peacocks, plus keyboardist Tony Kieraldo – performed at the Newport Folk Festival a few weeks ago and will head to the Midwest in September around Chicago’s Riot Fest, where they play the day after the Turf Club on Sept. 13. Selvidge is filling in for his longtime pal Dickinson on these upcoming shows.
Their new 7-inch, titled "L.M.A.O." and featuring the songs “Breathing Room” and “Not This Time,” will drop just before the gig on Sept. 11. Those tunes are also being issued on cassette by Burger Records. All this is leading up to the full-length album's release sometime next year, Stinson reports. His last solo record was 2011's "One Man Mutiny."

Stinson also produced a new EP by the buzzing Southern California punk band Together Pangea in his (ample) downtime between this past year's Replacement gigs.

Not surprisingly, the drummer for this tour is not Frank.

For this tour, Stinson has put together a lineup of friends that includes drummer Joe Kid from the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, bassist Justin Perkins of the Obsoletes, The Hold Steady’s Steve Selvidge on guitar, and Tony Kieraldo on keyboard. The band has plenty of Wisconsin ties; Perkins grew up in Neenah, and Kieraldo is from outside of Madison.

“It’s been a while since I’ve actually had a band, or a band kind of vibe,” Stinson said. “It’s always been using other people’s bands, or whatever. These last few times out, I have my own crew, even though it revolves or evolves a little bit, and I’m pretty stoked about it.”

With both GN’R and the Replacements reunion behind him for now, Stinson has been enjoying his freedom to refocus on his solo work. In addition to touring with the new band, he’s been spending a lot of time writing and recording new material. Last year he released a two-song 7” record titled “L.M.A.O.”

He said that a couple of labels are interested in putting out a new full-length album, but he’s in no hurry. “It’s predicated on me deciding ‘Okay, now I’m done.’ Only after that will I talk to the label about how we’re going to release it and what it’s going to mean. I’m not quite there yet.”

Tommy "revives" his Bash & Pop outfit for the new album! Frank will be on it.  Cool

http://tinyurl.com/hhp4l3k



When The Replacements ended their 33-show reunion tour in June 2015, founding bassist Tommy Stinson walked away with his head held high. Armed with a pocketful of new songs and a clean slate, he holed up at his home studio in Hudson, NY and played solo tour dates with a group of A+ players/friends backing him, including Luther Dickinson, Frank Ferrer, Cat Popper, Steve Selvidge, and Joe “The Kid” Sirois. They had more fun than humans should be allowed to have, and over the next year and a half they pieced together a brand new record. A BAND record.

Never one to hog the spotlight, the only logical thing to do at this point was to reanimate ‘Bash & Pop’, the band Stinson started immediately following The Replacements first split in 1991. Fat Possum Records quickly signed them up and will be releasing their sophomore album in early 2017.
...
"Here’s a list of my friends that I have to thank for helping to shape the new album:

Chip Roberts (one-400’s)
Steve “Sleeve” Selvidge (The Hold Steady, Big Ass Truck)
Luther Dickinson (North Mississippi All-Stars, The Word)
Frank Ferrer (Guns N’ Roses)
Joe “The Kid” Sirois (The Mighty Mighty BossToneS, Roll The Tanks)
Cat Popper (Jack White, Ryan Adams & The Cardinals, Jesse Malin, Winning Instagram)
Justin “Carl” Perkins (Screeching Weasel, Obsoletes)
Tony “Tone Tone” Kieraldo (Played at The White House twice!)
Ryder Cooley"

In September, Replacements and Guns N' Roses bassist Tommy Stinson revealed that he had revived his Bash & Pop project for their first new album since 1993. Stinson has now unleashed "On the Rocks," the brash first single from that upcoming LP Anything Could Happen, in the form of a lyric video that cleverly combines iPhone text messaging with live Bash & Pop footage and behind-the-scenes video.

So the lineup, then, went to Janis Tanaka on bass. She was in the Jackson Saints from the San Francisco area, and more recently played for Pink.


Funny thing is: I met Janis Tanaka back in 2004, when she played with a metal band called "Fireball Ministry": friends of mine had the support slot and the singer told me that Janis had played with Stinson, so I chatted to her about him afterwards (this was the time when I'd just bought Tommy's first solo album, which I enjoyed a lot)! Cool

Tommy Stinson pairs tragic headlines with anthemic riffs on the second sample from Anything Could Happen, his upcoming reunion LP with post-Replacements band Bash & Pop. On "Never Wanted to Know," he snarls: "Shot down, bleeding from his back in the rain/ Some kid, they didn't even know he was eight," between paint-peeling guitar solos. "You're wishing that it all would end/ They repeat it on CNN."

Thursday’s packed Entry gig was the first official live appearance for Stinson’s revived/recreated ensemble, whose new album, “Anything Could Happen,” lands next Friday via Fat Possum Records. The choice of venue obviously added more of a historic tinge to the proceedings, since Stinson started playing the small room at age 14 not long after the Entry first opened in 1980. Tickets for the show were given out to fans who supported a Pledge Music campaign for the record, which Stinson recorded over different sessions with an all-star casted that included his Memphis bud Luther Dickinson (North Mississippi All-Stars, Black Crowes) and his former Guns N’ Roses bandmate Frank Ferrer.

The lineup that took the stage Thursday as Bash & Pop had its own impressive resume, too, with the Hold Steady’s Steve Selvidge on guitar, drummer Joe Sirois of the Mighty Mighty Bosstones and bassist Justin Perkins – none of whom were in the original, short-lived Bash & Pop. Neither the new nor the old Bash & Pop were reinventing the wheel, though. Thursday’s lineup provided the same sort of spirited, Faces-meets-Johnny-Thunders, barroom-rock backdrop for Stinson’s loose, snarling but melodic and sometimes melancholy tunes.

About five years ago, after nearly two decades living in Los Angeles as a member of Guns N' Roses 2.0 (with a brief stint in Philly along the way), Tommy Stinson relocated to Hudson, a burgeoning city located near the border of Columbia and Dutchess counties in Upstate New York.

ESQ: It's wild to hear how seamlessly Anything Could Happen picks right up from where Friday Night Is Killing Me left off, even though that was never the intention. But it would be interesting to hear how this new lineup was able to kick into gear so fluidly. It was really cool to see Luther Dickinson's name in particular while reading the album credits…

Tommy Stinson: Well, he and I had been buddies for a long time now, and so I got to a point where I was like, "Hey man, are you going to be around on this particular date?" Then [former Guns N' Roses drummer] Frank [Ferrer] and Cat [Popper] came up and we did a session over the weekend. They all stayed at my house, and I think we actually yacked and talked and bullshitted more than we actually played, but we got a few songs done in that first session and we were like, 'Hmmm, we got a cool thing here, why don't we make a whole record like this?' And then between Frank and Cat and Luther becoming busy with their other gigs, I had to wrangle in some other people that—lucky for me—I have.

So I got Joe "The Kid" Sirois of the Mighty Mighty Bosstones playing the drums, who I knew when I lived in L.A. and met like eight years ago. Justin Perkins, who played in Screeching Weasel, has been a buddy of ours for a while and has played with me on and off on bass for years. Tony Kieraldo is my local homie here in Hudson; he plays keys. And Steve Selvidge came in via Luther Dickinson. They grew up together, and Luther was like, "If I can't make it to something, you should get Steve." We did one rehearsal with the guy and he had everything fuckin' down pat, and it worked out. Now the band that finished the album and did about two-thirds of the recording is the touring lineup right there. They're going out on the road with me until my eyes bleed.
