Two great groups, but I’m not so sure I’d align the Trashcans’ as successors to Big Country.

Performer Magazine’s Carmen Velez, however, seemed to think so in her review of debut album, ‘Cake’.

Classic Pop?

A four-star review in Classic Pop magazine was bestowed upon the recent reissue of the Trashcan Sinatras’ second album, ‘I’ve Seen Everything’.

At the slightest touch of being bias, I’d have went with five-star.

The Wee Stinker

Early Trashcan songs were full of clever wordplay – not that their most recent stuff isn’t – but it was interesting to discover that, ‘The Wee Stinker’, a crossword in Scotland’s Glasgow Herald became the inspiration for some of their lyrics.

Here’s a clipping from late 1995 which appeared in The List Magazine in the run up to the release of third album, ‘A Happy Pocket’.

Tutti-frutti indeed.

The new exclusive Trashcan Sinatras AA 7″ single is out now. 750 copies have been pressed onto eco coloured vinyl – Green, Blue, Opaque Pink, Transparent Orange, Yellow.

Which colour did you get?

New song, ‘Ways’ is backed on fantastic plastic with the best song from 2020, ‘The Closer You Move Away From Me’ – listen out for the wee nod to Jackie DeShannon. Magic stuff!

The single has been released by Scotland’s label of choice, Last Night From Glasgow, who will also be reissuing second album, ‘I’ve Seen Everything’, later in 2021. I wonder how many colours that one will come in?

Design and artwork was created by the talented Mr Chris Dooley over at How It Is Nowadays in Brooklyn, NY.

The alert Trashcan fans among you will, of course, recognise Chris from the Autopsy fanzine produced thirty-odd years ago.

The edition released in Japan included liner notes written by The Laundries. I’m sure they are very complimentary.
