In 2004, during the months of September and October, The Trashcans toured the USA and Canada for the first time since 1993, playing 26 dates in all. This was the first tour in support of fourth album, ‘Weightlifting’.
October 10 saw the Trashcan limo roll into San Diego, CA – stopping off at the M Theory Music store and KBZT Radio earlier in the day before heading to play a sold out gig at Cane’s Bar and Grill.
Here’s the promo poster for the gig. I’ve no idea who designed it, but I like it.
The tour of 2004, as a whole, saw the Trashcans making over 50 appearances in countries including Spain, England, Scotland and North America.
A wee footnote: (They’re floating above us) is a line taken from the Mekons’ 1988 single ‘Ghosts of American Astronauts’. You can have a wee listen to it here. And if you like it, you can download the Trashcans’ version here. Recorded straight from the soundboard at Fez, New York in April 2004 – it’s a belter!Follow @fivehungryjoes
