David Roberts wasn’t happy with The Trashcans’ third album, ‘A Happy Pocket’ in this two-star review from Q Magazine. According to David, the band had moved away from their coy, jangly sound to cardboard, cartoon pop.

Not according to Paul Mardles from Sounds Magazine.
If his review of their performance at London’s ICA is anything to go by, he was far from happy. Maybe it was because he was missing the World Cup.

…Music Archive Collection was set up to bring back to life some long lost, out of print classic albums. Albums by artists such as ABBA, Big Country, The Style Council, The Jam and eh – one of Paul’s favourites – Wet Wet Wet.
Back in 2004, ‘A Happy Pocket’ by the Trashcan Sinatras was also given the nod to be re-released – it is a classic after all.
Most of these releases were interactive CD’s. Pop them into your Mac or PC and some additional material was available for you to peruse while listening to the audio. Don’t know what’s wrong with my copy but it disnae work.
It’s a very clever idea and may have been a godsend if you’d been searching for what was once, one of the elusive Trashcan albums. Not so, if you were the band. I can’t imagine they would’ve seen any of the proceeds from the sale of this edition.
Enjoy the rest of your day.Follow @fivehungryjoes
