The story of the Trashcan Sinatras is one of perseverance—that of the band, and that of its fans. The group originally formed as a covers band in 1987 in Irvine, Scotland. Their debut, Cake, was released to critical acclaim in 1990, and spawned alternative and college radio hits “Obscurity Knocks” and “Only Tongue Can Tell.” The more mature follow-up, 1993’s I’ve Seen Everything, received even stronger reviews, but in an era when grunge was all the rage, the Trashcans’ melodic gems were buried by the alt-rock sounds from Seattle. Album number three, A Happy Pocket, was released in 1996 (but not in the USA, the band’s largest market) just before the demise of Go!Discs, and became the band’s final traditional-label release for quite some time. An early belief in the value of the Internet, however, led to the creation of an official website, and the band’s heavily trafficked website, trashcansinatras.com, helped unite the Trashcans’s global fan base, which stood devoted and zealous behind the group’s shift to independence. Now in 2010, after more than two decades making music and twenty years after their debut release, the guys from Glasgow have finished recording their newest album, In the Music, to be released April 27. The album features a new collection of songs brimming with the band’s signature melodies and relaxed harmonies. The band recorded the album in New York City and Martha’s Vineyard with producer Andy Chase (Ivy) and were joined in the studio by long-time friends, bassist Grant Wilson, keyboardist Stevie Mulhearn and guitarist Jody Stoddart. Genre: Folk/Rock
