Any­thing Could Hap­pen FAT POS­SUM 8/10 long-awaited re­turn of Tommy Stin­son’s Re­place­ments re­place­ments Any num­ber of bands have sounded to some ex­tent like The Re­place­ments. Bash & Pop have bet­ter rea­sons than most, be­ing the group formed by Re­place­ments bassist Tommy Stin­son af­ter the ’Mats first folded in the early ’90s. Any­thing Could Hap­pen, fol­low­ing Stin­son’s long stint in Guns N’ Roses and his re­join­ing of the re­formed Re­place­ments, is Bash & Pop’s strong second al­bum. In terms of the in­evitable com­par­i­son, it pitches roughly be­tween Tim and Pleased

To Meet Me, a col­lec­tion of grin­ning ram­shackle rock’n’roll and de­cep­tively sweet bal­ladry: “Breath­ing Room” and “Never wanted To Know”, es­pe­cially, would have been stand­outs on any Re­place­ments al­bum.
