Bash & Pop was the band that Tommy Stinson formed after the dissolution of The Replacements. Stinson, who had played bass for the Replacements, switched to guitar and lead vocals for this project. Joining him were latter-day Replacements drummer Steve Foley, Steve's brother Kevin on bass and guitarist Steve Brantseg. The band released one album, 1993's Friday Night Is Killing Me. Reviews were mixed, as Stinson found it difficult to emerge from the long shadow cast by erstwhile bandmate Paul Westerberg. Many critics identified The Faces as a prominent influence. The band's name evolved out of a contest hosted by New York radio station WDRE. Bash & Pop was apparently a band in name only. According to rumors, Stinson recorded the album mostly by himself with the help of session pros. Indeed, the band was on its THIRD bass player, Janis Tanaka, during its only tour. The song "Making Me Sick" appeared in the 1994 film Clerks and on its soundtrack. Stinson went on to form the band Perfect (which was initially going to simply be an all-new lineup of Bash & Pop until they decided that a name change was in order) before accepting the bass slot in Guns N' Roses.
