All The Best…

This ‘Best of Trashcan Sinatras’ is basically a bootleg CD, albeit a band-approved one, and was put together for USA radio for the March 2011 tour.

There were around 100 made and sent out to various radio stations. The band’s tour manager, Ben Marts and sound guy Sean got together and ‘remastered’ some of the tracks, trimmed some of the songs and changed some levels to fit it all on the disc. To be honest, I can’t tell the difference.

The artwork was put together by Shane Locke, although by his own admission – not to his usual high standards.

A copy of this CD made it onto eBay and was sold for just over $200 – obviously bought by a TCS die-hard – and caused a fair amount of discussion on the band’s forum.

That’s about it really. All the best for now…

To promote the Trashcans’ 2010 US ‘In The Music’ tour, the band launched a tour quiz video. The object of the quiz was to make the connection between the cities that were included within the tour and various images that were shown on the video.

Dead easy? No really. It was pretty difficult, especially if you were on my side of the Atlantic. Needless to say, the winners came from the other side of the water.

In the end there were three joint winners – Randy Schreck, who sent me this picture, was one of them – who were given the opportunity to participate in their own Skype chat with the band and win some autographed items.

The picture is an early promo from the Cake era and includes, from left to right: John, George, Paul, Stephen and Frank. It is also autographed by band members past and present.

Here’s the Japanese promo edition of fifth album, ‘In The Music’.

It’s very rare and very nice.
