Here’s a poster for the band’s gig at Dante’s, Portland Oregon – part of the the 2004 tour which included over 50 appearances in Spain, England, Scotland and North America. This tour was the band’s first in support of fourth album, ‘Weightlifting’ and it was prior to the single, ‘All The Dark Horses’ being released the following year in the US.

More thanks go to Ben ‘Tour Manager’ Marts for sending this through.

…only more original and believable.

Here’s a promo poster for a series of gigs the Trashcans’ played at the 2004 South-by-Southwest festival in Austin, Texas. There’s more info on the band’s time at the festival here.

Big thank you to Ben ‘Tour Manager’ Marts for sending this through.

A very large promo poster for debut album ‘Cake’. So large in fact, I could probably fill one of the walls in my hallway with it.

Now there’s an idea.

We Come From This Town Up Here

Number One was a British pop music weekly magazine which ran for around nine years, mostly during the 1980s, and was marketed as ‘The best weekly pop mag on earth!’

It’s not until you go back and read a magazine like this that you realise how utter shite it really was. The best weekly pop mag on earth? Yer arse.

So it was surprising to find a Trashcan interview in among all the garbage (pun intended) of the 1990s pop scene.

Here’s Paul extolling the wonders of his hometown of Irvine…

Let’s Go Roaming…

…to Laurel Canyon via Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall.

That’s exactly what Scottish musician Roddy Hart did recently for a night of collaboration at Celtic Connections.

In the late 1960s, Laurel Canyon, a neighbourhood high above Los Angeles, was home to the counterculture hippy scene with influential artists like Jodi Mitchell, The Byrds, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Frank Zappa and James Taylor, all living and making music in and around the area.

Hart inaugurated Roaming Roots in 2013 as a celebration of the late Levon Helm and its success gave him the thumbs up to repeat the recipe. Billed as a tribute to the legends of Laurel Canyon, this year’s Revue followed in a similar vein, taking advantage of the presence of so many musicians in town for the Celtic Connections festival. Artists on the bill included Lau, Lindi Ortega, Dawes, Siobhan Wilson, Idlewild’s Roddy Woomble and Frank and John from the Trashcan Sinatras – each offering their own take on a canyon related song and also allowed the opportunity to unveil some of their own work.

By the end of the show there were over 30 musicians on stage for a rousing finale of The Eagles’ ‘Take It Easy’ and The Mamas and the Papas’ ‘California Dreaming’.

Frank and John took to the stage earlier in the first half of the show for a sublime take on Judee Sill’s, ‘The Kiss’.

Here’s the promo poster for the event – a copy of which was presented to each artist who played.
