Aye, bumper stickers. You don’t see too many of them these days. They’re usually naff. “My other car is a Porsche” and all that. Never been a fan of them myself.

But this one – not that it’s going on my bumper mind – I like.

There’s been a few of these in the past, around the time of ‘Weightlifting’, but “I’m listening to the Trashcan Sinatras” may be the most recent one I’m aware of.

Very nice.

Recorded live over 2 intimate acoustic shows on Monday 23 and Wednesday 25 November 2009 in the conservatory of Glasgow’s Brel Bar, Brel features acoustic performances of nearly every song from the Trashcan Sinatras’ most recent studio album, ‘In The Music’.

It includes 17 tracks in total with a further eight songs from the shows available on the US version of In The Music – but you’ve already got that one haven’t you?

It’s a great wee CD and is recorded like all live albums should be – without the annoying two second gap between each song.

…was the second album by UK duo Jamie Catto and Duncan Bridgeman under the name 1 Giant Leap. It was a project which took them both to over 50 locations exploring music and human nature and had the aim of revealing a common connection between creativity and beliefs.

The project featured a diverse collection of artists from around the globe including Maxi Jazz (Faithless), Michael Stipe (REM), Tim Robbins, Billy Connolly, Carlos Santana, Alanis Morissette, Stewart Copeland (The Police) and k.d. lang.

Trashcan connection?

Track 5 on CD1, ‘Are You My Love’ is sung by Eddi Reader. A short track with haunting vocals, it was co-written by John Douglas and Eddi and features some fine pedal steel by Daniel Lanois (U2, Peter Gabriel etc).

It’s magic.
