Rural Ledge-ucation #73: Happy Birthday Tommy Stinson

Tommy Stinson turned 46 yesterday, so it only made sense that I turned Rural Ledge-ucation into a birthday celebration. Besides a few Replacements tracks, we sampled some tracks from his days fronting Bash & Pop and Perfect, along with tunes from his two solo albums, Village Gorilla Head and One Man Mutiny. As always, there's a few rarities thrown in, including covers of The Clash and Undertones.
Of course, we also had to discuss the exciting news that Tommy and Paul Westerberg have recently reconvened to record four covers for an EP to assist in paying for guitarist Slim Dunlap's medical bills. As you may expect, I'm extremely excited by this project, and will bid whatever it takes to obtain a copy.
