…Record. It’s on Stage and it’s on Film.

Busy, busy, busy eh?

Here’s a small A5 flyer to promote the release of single ‘Twisted & Bent’, a live tour supporting Ian McNabb (see Icicle Works) and their blockbuster movie ‘Spooktime’ – dished out during one of the band’s more productive periods.

Thanks Mr Hartley.

To promote second album ‘I’ve Seen Everything’, Go! Discs thought it would be a good idea to run a series of anagrams.

These appeared in various music press, t-shirts, CD promos and most famously on a fence at the 1993 Phoenix Festival.

It is widely believed the band weren’t too keen on this idea and distanced themselves from what was described as “…an obscene insult masquerading as a marketing ploy…”

Part of the Trashcans 2009 UK Tour takes in the Borders Music & Comedy Festival.

In amongst all the bands (Idlewild, Broken Records) and comedians, they have a date with the Kelso Tait Hall.

Here’s the press ad from the Sunday Mail – who this week, have managed to get the date and venue correct.
