Perfect In-depth Biography

After the Replacements'} demise in the early '90s, bassist Tommy Stinson} formed a new project called Bash and Pop}, which released a single album, Friday Night Is Killing Me}. Since the album was written entirely by Stinson} in his attic, it wasn't a true band effort, or a rocking one for that matter, which became apparent when he tried to tour for the album with a newly assembled band. He decided to put his first post-'Mats} project to rest, and soon formed the more typically Stinson}-like band Perfect}. The band came together in August 1995, consisting of Stinson} on bass/vocals, Marc Solomon} on guitar/vocals, Dave Philips} on guitar/vocals, and Gersh} on drums. They began gigging soon after and caught the attention of Medium Cool Records}, who signed them after label head Peter Jesperson} (an old manager of the Replacements}) caught an explosive gig in their hometown of Los Angeles. They opted to release an EP first, 1996's When Squirrels Play Chicken}. Produced by Don Smith} (Keith Richards}, Cracker}, etc.), the album was a glorious return to Stinson}'s sloppy roots-rock sound. In 1997, the band went into the studio with producer Jim Dickinson} (who manned the boards for the Replacements}' Pleased To Meet Me}) and recorded Perfect}'s first full-length album, Seven Days A Week}. However, by the time the album was ready for release, Medium Cool Records} were at loggerheads with Regency Pictures}, the new owners of their distributing label, Restless Records}. Regency} shelved the album, and frustration over the album's fate led to the band's break-up in 1998. Stinson} signed on as bassist for Axl Rose}'s new version of Guns 'n Roses} and cut a solo album, while Phillips} worked with Frank Black}, Solomon} played with Clumsy} and Solly}, and Gersh} opened a drum sales and rental firm. A remixed and resequenced version of Seven Days A Week}, retitled Once, Twice, Three Times a Maybe}, was finally released by Rykodisc} in 2004. ~ Greg Prato, All Music Guide
