TOMMY STINSON?S LEGENDARY LOST PERFECT ALBUM TO BE RELEASED AT LAST! [July 22, 2004]
FORMER REPLACEMENT TOMMY STINSON?S LONG-LOST PERFECT ALBUM FINALLY BEING RELEASED ON RYKODISC ON SEPTEMBER 14th

After legendary critics' favorites the Replacements called it quits in the early '90s, founding ?Mats member and bassist Tommy Stinson (following a brief stint with the under-appreciated Bash N Pop) formed a new rock band, Perfect, in 1995.

Their album, a near- (dare we say?) perfect mix of driving rock, sophisticated pop and smartass lyrics recalls the Replacements at the height of their rocking irreverence and would?ve made a great impact on the musical landscape of the mid-90?s.

Unfortunately, record company politics intervened and the album was shelved until now!

Here?s the history behind this great lost record. Perfect joined up with (original Replacements manager) Peter Jesperson?s Medium Cool Records, a division of Twin/Tone. Their first release was the When Squirrels Play Chicken EP released in 1996.

Later in 1996, Perfect recorded the remix of Puff Daddy?s "All about the Benjamins," and went in to record their debut album, originally titled "Seven Days A Week," with legendary producer Jim Dickinson (Replacements, Ry Cooder, Big Star, G.Love).

Everything was looking positive for the upstart rockers.

Then, caught in the middle of label politics, the album was shelved. Perfect called it a day shortly thereafter, and it was assumed the album would never see the light of day.

Tommy went on to join Guns N? Roses, did some solo touring, and recently recorded his first solo album Village Gorilla Head for Sanctuary Records. The other band members moved on to endeavors in and out of the music business.

Through the years, fans have heard songs through various nefarious sources, but the album remained in the vault. In 2003, the Restless catalog was acquired by Rykodisc and the album was remixed by Matt Hyde (No Doubt, Sum 41, Porno for Pyros) and prepped for release.

To acknowledge the tribulations the album suffered on its way to the world, in early 2004 it was appropriately rechristened Once, Twice, Three Times A Maybe. And at long last, it's here!

Perfect Once, Twice, Three Times a Maybe out on Rykodisc on September 14th
