In 2004, during the months of September and October, The Trashcans toured the USA and Canada for the first time since 1993, playing 26 dates in all. This was the first tour in support of fourth album, ‘Weightlifting’.
October 10 saw the Trashcan limo roll into San Diego, CA – stopping off at the M Theory Music store and KBZT Radio earlier in the day before heading to play a sold out gig at Cane’s Bar and Grill.
Here’s the promo poster for the gig. I’ve no idea who designed it, but I like it.
The tour of 2004, as a whole, saw the Trashcans making over 50 appearances in countries including Spain, England, Scotland and North America.
A wee footnote: (They’re floating above us) is a line taken from the Mekons’ 1988 single ‘Ghosts of American Astronauts’. You can have a wee listen to it here. And if you like it, you can download the Trashcans’ version here. Recorded straight from the soundboard at Fez, New York in April 2004 – it’s a belter!Follow @fivehungryjoes

No miracle’s going to save this tape I’m afraid.
The tape machine seems to have chewed up this old promo copy of ‘I’ve Seen Everything’.
Think I’ll stick it back in the cabinet.Follow @fivehungryjoes

…it’s ‘Twisted and Bent’.
Here’s a small newspaper advert promoting the release of 7th single , ‘Twisted and Bent’. As well as promoting the single it also gives a wee plug to their tour in support of Ian McNabb and also the Phoenix Festival of that year.
Anyway, I’m off to explore Murphy’s law and the rules of Columbus – back soon.Follow @fivehungryjoes

…is, according to Google Translate, German for ‘I’ve Seen Everything’.
I thought I’d seen pretty much everything when it comes to TCS memorabilia, and then just to keep me on ma toes - this popped through my letterbox.
It’s the European release of fifth single, ‘I’ve Seen Everything’, and it’s all very different to the regular releases. This one is in a jewel case, the CD is grey in colour and the anchor on the spine has the colours reversed – magic!
Ich habe nicht alles gesehen… is according to Google Translate, German for ‘I haven’t seen everything’
See ye later.
