In 1993, the TCS were lucky enough to play the inaugural Phoenix Festival – set up by the Mean Fiddler Group as an alternative to the established Glastonbury and Reading Festivals.

It was held at Long Marston Airfield near Stratford-Upon-Avon in England, and was one of the first four-day British festivals. However, the event was marred by controversy as strict rules from the organisers prevented those in attendance from doing the usual festival things like – having a camp fire or playing amplified music.

So it’s just as well drugs, alcohol and liberal sex were a popular alternative.

Here’s some snippets from the official programme…


The caption on the photograph above goes like this…

After more than two and a half years in self-imposed exile, The Trash Can Sinatras re-appeared last year. Their new material, stemming from this period, covers themes from shoplifting to suicide. But, ever the perfectionists, they refused to release anything until the production of the latest album ‘I’ve Seen Everything’ met their approval.
