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.

Well, really!

This promotional advert appeared in most UK music magazines including Q. If you have a wee search around eBay, you can get yourself a framed copy of this for not a lot of money – if you like that sort of thing.

It is widely believed the band weren’t too keen on this idea and distanced themselves from what was described as “…an obscene insult masquerading as a marketing ploy…”

Here’s such an ad from Q Magazine…
