The Kinks’ Ray Davies may not be keen on getting his band back together, but he is keen on paying tribute to American roots music by turning to The Jayhawks to back him on his new record Americana. Replacements bassist Tommy Stinson started a short-lived project called Bash & Pop shortly after The Replacements broke up – on stage at an XRT Free Fourth of July Show to be precise. Bash & Pop is back and we played ’em along with new Lorde and a whole lot more on this week’s New Noise at Nine.
