Get In The Van

The Trashcan’s UK tour is about to start next week, so perfect timing for this post.

The other day I received an unexpected email from a source – who shall remain anonymous – that included a couple of pictures of a cassette.

The cassette belongs to Iain Wilson. Those of you who are regulars at Trashcan gigs will have no doubt seen him behind the merchandise table – but he’s more than just the ‘merch guy’. A friend of the band for many a year, he’s also been responsible for driving the band all over the country from town to city and back again.

I believe Iain is heading back out with the Trashcan ‘container’ on this forthcoming tour, and as you can see from the labels, the cassette hasn’t been the most popular of selections in the tour van.

So, guys, get in the van, enjoy the tour and who knows, maybe big Iain’ll have some new music for you.

2018 Trashcan Sinatras



Out for a spell, got neglected…

… lay on the bench, unselected – is a fantastic lyric from the Trashcan Sinatras’ ‘I’m Immortal’. Reminds me of my playing days at Irvine Vics!

However, the band have recently received some well-deserved recognition – not before time I say. In a recent poll by the Glasgow Herald newspaper, the band’s second album, ‘I’ve Seen Everything’ was voted number 2 in a Top 10 of Scotland’s all-time favourite albums.

The band are now off the bench, on the pitch and playing alongside the so-called big boys of the Scottish music scene including Belle & Sebastian, Deacon Blue, Love & Money, Teenage Fanclub, Cocteau Twins and winners, The Blue Nile.

Off the back of this, an article has appeared in today’s Herald with lead singer Frank Reader explaining where the band are now after releasing their sixth album, ‘Wild Pendulum’ in 2016.

The article is written by Craig McAllister. You can find more of Craig’s work over at the quite brilliant music blog Plain or Pan.
