…and Learn, because this. Is. Music.

The final items from the 2017 ‘All Night in America’ Pledgemusic campaign arrived a few days ago, and they’re an absolute treat.

The Trashcan Sinatras’ first official live DVD and accompanying live CD was recorded at the Swing House in Los Angeles, California on 24 November 2017 and sees a band at the top of their game. Looking relaxed and cool (of course), John, Paul and Frank effortlessly play songs from their 30 year career – songs that haven’t seen the light of day for many a year including Aberration, The Perfect Reminder, No Gasoline and Circling The Circumference. There’s 31 songs on the DVD with 21 of them included on the CD, all held together in a wonderfully produced gatefold package designed by How it is Nowadays in Brooklyn, who also designed the creative for ‘Wild Pendulum’.

The Tour Book is 90-odd pages of song lyrics and band member thoughts for each song on the DVD, plus a few additional photos from the tour. It’s a great insight into the stories behind the songs, and I’ve had to change my original interpretation on a few of them – but hey, isn’t that the beauty of music?

Now, when’s the next pledge campaign starting?

…is a fine way to deal with a heckler don’t you think?

Such was the response from Frank to someone in the Glasgow crowd for their gig at King Tuts way back in 1991. All very friendly no doubt.

Here’s Craig McLean’s review which appeared in The List magazine…

Here’s a selection of posters and leaflets from the recent ‘All Night’ acoustic tour of the United States, where John, Frank and Paul celebrated 30 years in music.

The band have written and recorded over 100 songs to date, and each song was played during the course of the tour – some for the very first time.

Thanks Ben.

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.

Here’s what he wrote back in July of 1990…
