A couple of years back a good friend asked me whether or not the Trashcans had been immortalised in print.
At the time I had no idea, but after a wee bit of research, I found they’d been mentioned in various books over the years – short stories, novels and the like. You can see the results in this previous post.
‘How To Disappear Completely’ by Troy Nethercott is another book where the Trashcans are given an honorary mention in a short story called ‘A Day In the Life of Martin Wilson’.
Martin writes screenplays in Los Angeles and the story revolves around how his life is affected by those around him, but in particular by the death of his friend, John. Both shared a passion of cult bands like Violent Femmes, Housemartins, Milo Binder and The Trashcan Sinatras.
So there ye go – immortal once again.
