That’s how I’d describe Eddi Reader’s ‘Live In Japan’ album.

Recorded at Billboard Live shows, Japan in September of 2009, this CD covers a wide selection of her career highs, from Fairground Attraction’s, ‘Perfect’, all the way to the recent Love is the Way. It’s a great album with stunning and haunting vocals and the crowd participation is worth the purchase fee alone. In fact, the album closes with a Japanese children’s song, Usagi, sung a cappella with the audience.

Eddi is joined by regular band members Roy Dodds, Boo Hewerdine, Alan Kelly, Kevin McGuire and I have it on good authority that the Trashcans John Douglas is ‘all over it’.

Now, write it out a hundred times!

Ah, takes me back to my school days when I was chucked out of art class for allowing the word ‘fuck’ to pass through my lips. My teacher proceeded to give me a lecture on said word and gave me 100 lines as well – I wouldn’t have minded that much, but I was in 5th year at secondary school! Crazy hippy teacher!

Anyhow, here’s a small advert which appeared in the NME to promote 9th single, ‘To Sir, With Love’

No help required!

Here’s the very rare 12″ promo for debut single, ‘Obscurity Knocks’. A very simple piece with a big letter A on one side of the white labels – good effort Go! Discs.

The plain black sleeve comes complete with a promo label. And that’s about it really.

Except to say that the A side is inscribed with the legend, ‘Youthenasia’

Way back when the Trashcans were dipping their toes in the music business, they supported They Might Be Giants on a few early 1990 dates.

One of which was at London University’s Union – LULU for short. Here’s NME’s Stephen Dalton’s review…
