Here’s the promo ad for the Japanese release of third album ‘A Happy Pocket’, which appeared in ‘Rockin’ On’ magazine.

No idea what it says, but it does list the song names just under the word Can!

…until you’ve heard ‘I’ve Seen Everything’

This promotional advert appeared in most UK music magazines including Q. If you have a wee search around eBay, you can get yourself a framed copy of this for not a lot of money – if you like that sort of thing.

With the support of the Scottish Arts Council, a record number of Scottish bands performed in Austin, Texas at the South-by-Southwest (SxSW) music and film festival in 2004.

The ‘Scottish Invasion’ as it was affectionately known, was an opportunity for a number of the bands including the Trashcans to showcase their talents. Others acts who performed included Biffy Clyro, Idlewild and Hobotalk.

Between March 17-21 the Trashcans made a number of appearances and interviews in support of the upcoming ‘Weightlifting’ album, with their official SxSW showcase gig, taking place at midnight at the Fox and Hound on Friday March 19.

Here’s a promo CD from this time. All tracks are studio recordings.
