Five Hungry Joes – A pictorial archive of the Trashcan Sinatras. Legendary Scottish Band


Awopbopaloobop Alopbamboom

Tutti-frutti indeed.

The new exclusive Trashcan Sinatras AA 7″ single is out now. 750-ish copies have been pressed onto eco coloured vinyl – Green, Blue, Opaque Pink, Transparent Orange, Talbot Yellow (for Big Iain). Which colour did you get?

New song, ‘Ways’ is backed on fantastic plastic with the best song from 2020, ‘The Closer You Move Away From Me’ – listen out for the wee nod to Jackie DeShannon. Magic stuff!

The single has been released by Scotland’s label of choice, Last Night From Glasgow, who will also be reissuing second album, ‘I’ve Seen Everything’, later in 2021. I wonder how many colours that one will come in?

Design and artwork was created by the talented Mr Chris Dooley over at How It Is Nowadays in Brooklyn, NY.

The alert Trashcan fans among you will, of course, recognise Chris from the Autopsy fanzine produced thirty-ish years ago.

The edition released in Japan included liner notes written by The Laundries. I’m sure they are very complimentary.

Cheers Craig. Hopefully you’ll get your copy soon. Hope you are well.

I may be a little slow today but… what’s the nod to Jackie DeShannon ?

That wee keyboard bit in the song sounds a bit like Bette Davis Eyes. I may well have stretched the connection though 🙂
