Easy Read and the accompanying Desktop Tales was the first Scottish-based fanzine dedicated to the Trashcan Sinatras.

Produced in 1997 by David Anderson, a fan from Kilwinning in Ayrshire, the fanzine consisted of 44 pages and included a 16 page pull-out on mainly recent – ’95 & ’96 – local and national press material, a 2 page article on the famous email list, contributed by original list member Diane Gleim from Los Angeles, California, Kenny Gan’s original discography, a gigography of concerts played by the band since July ’95, numerous set lists and finally a selection of unseen photographs by ‘official’ band photographer Colin Dunsmuir.

It’s very good and all for the bargain price of £3…

…or maybe no. Russel’s doing Fine.

Here’s an interesting piece of Trashcan memorabilia – a band & crew tour itinerary book from early 1991.

This would have been distributed to people involved in the tour and contains all the relevant information for the tour including hotels, tour companies, crew members, travel arrangements, promoters and venues.

Stay safe folks.

…so says the sign at the DJ booth.

Many years ago, a good friend and I dabbled in the murky world of the music business. Every Saturday we’d meet up in our local pub, sit in our usual spot, have a few beers and rip the pish oot of the DJ and whatever music he was playing.

We asked the DJ for bands we wanted to hear – The Smiths, Teenage Fanclub, Spearmint, Beatles, Dylan, Stones and many many more. He never had anything we asked for.

So we asked Big Wullie the Manager if we could get a wee slot before the ‘main act’ came on. Surprisingly he agreed, so off we went. Never got paid. Never had a sign –  just played whatever we and like-minded souls wanted to hear.

Anyhow, here’s the promo CD of ‘All Night’, a disco dance floor stomper of a tune – featuring the brass of Herb Alpert’s ‘The Lonely Bull’ – that implores the DJ to ‘do his job’.

Are ye dancin…?

Here’s a smart set of lyric cards that were given to VIP ticket holders on the US tour in support of ‘Wild Pendulum’.

There are fifteen cards in total – one for every song on the album, a Wild Pendulum front and back cover and one each for John, Frank, Stephen and Paul…
