Let me guess. The Smiths?

Here’s a review of the Trashcans debut album ‘Cake’, which appeared August of 1990 in Japanese music magazine Crossbeat. 

10 out 10 no less.

We have been waiting and waiting for this first album from the Trash Can Sinatras, and the two singles that have already been released from it are outstanding. Their guitar sound reminds us of early Aztec Camera or The Housemartins and that clear guitar sound, so familiar to “that-band-that-starts-with-S.” (sic) I don’t think I am exaggerating at all.

The sound and excitement that this album gives you are reminders of that sound. If you categorise them as ‘80s British acoustic music, they are very orthodox. But you can see their originality in the last song on this album which has not only emotional lyrics but also a collage of sound. The Trash Can Sinatras prompt us to appreciate something which we might otherwise take for granted, like the blue sky peering out from behind the clouds, and to remember something important that we are on the verge of forgetting.

…across the US, the Trashcans played around 20 dates between May and June in support of sixth album ‘Wild Pendulum’.

Here’s a few posters from the time…thanks to Ben ‘Tour Manager’ Marts for sending them over.
