Hello again. It’s been a while. But welcome back, as they say.

I’m sure you are all well aware by now that the Trashcans have been tinkering away on some new material and are soon to share the fruits of their labour with us. It’s been some time since their last long player graced the airwaves. A five year gap between albums is the norm but this one has taken a wee bit longer for reasons which are well documented elsewhere, but it’s great news that we are all going to have something to enjoy very soon.

Way back in October of 2014 the Trashcans set up a Pledgemusic campaign. Pledgemusic is a clever way of connecting artists with their fans from the minute they step into the studio to the release of a project to the end of a tour and back again.

So, with that in mind, the four principles concocted a series of “exclusives” offering unique content, merchandise and experiences, allowing us fans to purchase various items to help with the funding of the new album’s recording.

These ranged from a simple download of the album, to a signed Fender Guild acoustic guitar to a production credit on the sleeve notes. There are still items available to buy here. Go and buy something and be part of the journey.

So, to get my hands on most of the exclusives I fancied, all food shopping, the Sky Sports account and my monthly subscription to MOJO magazine all went oot the window – it’s a small sacrifice!

The first exclusive on the list duly arrived in the post last week.
A postcard from Nebraska. Cheers guys!

Taken from the 2010 tour. I’m not sure who designed this poster – Shane, perhaps? Also, the imagery puzzles me too. Is it a representation of the four principles in the band I wonder?

Thanks Ben!

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.
