A very early promo cassette from Go! Discs featured the Trashcans’ version of ‘Tonight You Belong To Me’ – a song written in 1926 by lyricist Billy Rose and composer Lee David.

The song – widely known for its appearance in Steve Martin’s film ‘The Jerk’ – is a wee bit longer than the original composition and features Frank duetting with his sister Richael.

Some copies – like this one – came in a wee metal tin. Other artists included on the tape include The La’s, Orbital, Meat Puppets and a personal ‘favourite’, Bananarama.

Ha! I was Tour Mgr for La’s at that gig in 1991 @ NYC Marquee [RIP]. Famous for me as I wouldn’t let Depeche Mode take over our dressing room as they’d flown it due to cancelling a gig in Ottawa so thier riggers wouldn’t get exposed to asbestos in Ottawa’s ceiling. I later in 1995 TM’d Meat Puppets all year working “Backwater.” And have been a TM 4 TCS since ’04. Small world. But I didn’t get a wee tin of promo for that record?! How did I miss TCS back then?
