Trashcan Sinatras

Trashcan Sinatras were formed in 1987 in the coastal town ofIrvine, Scotland, by John Douglas, Paul Livingston, DavidHughes, Stephen Douglas and Francis Reader. Quickly signed toesteemed British indie label Go!Discs, the group used its labeladvance to set up their own recording studio, Shabby Road, innearby Kilmarnock, where they settled in to create three criticallyacclaimedalbums.The first of these, Cake, was released in the summer of 1990 andfeatured debut single "Obscurity Knocks" and its follow-up"Only Tongue Can Tell", both of which became alternative radiohits in the USA, and introduced the group to what has become aloving and loyal fan base around the world. Their beloved secondalbum, I've Seen Everything, came along in 1993, preceded bythe lauded single "Hayfever." The group's next album, 1996'sself-produced A Happy Pocket, featured four singles, includingthe band's much-loved cover of "To Sir, With Love".After leaving Go! Discs in 1998, the group kept a low profile untilthe release of their fourth album, Weightlifting, in the autumn of2004. Extensive touring in support of that album followed, withshows in the UK, Europe, USA, Japan and Australia. In winter2007/2008, they record a fifth studio album, In the Music, atStratosphere Sound in Manhattan and on Martha's Vineyard. Thegroup celebrated the album's release in 2009 with concerts andpromotional appearances over the next two years in the UnitedStates, Japan and the United Kingdom. It was during the In theMusic tours that the band began playing "house parties" for fans,which have since become a staple of their touring schedule.In early 2015, the group set up camp with producer Mike Mogis(Bright Eyes, Justin Townes Earle, First Aid Kit, Rilo Kiley) at hisARC Studios in Omaha, Nebraska to record their sixth LP.Released in April 2016, the album, Wild Pendulum, received awarm welcome from music critics and fans. The A.V. Club said"Wild Pendulum is lovingly crafted, with layers in all the rightplaces," while Allmusic exclaimed the album is "quite likely thebest sophisticated guitar pop album anyone is likely to hear in2016." The band returned to the road for the first time in fiveyears, supporting the release with concerts in the United States,Scotland, England, Ireland and Japan.Paul, John and Francis hit the road as a three-piece unit inSeptember 2017 for a six week acoustic tour of North America,playing nearly all of the 100+ songs they had written togetherover the last 30 years. The tour included sold-out shows in NewYork City and Los Angeles, amongst others, and was capped offwith a second sell-out in Los Angeles, where the group filmed theshow for a live CD/DVD, All Night In America (released inOctober 2018).Trashcan Sinatras toured again in 2018, in both their acousticand full-band configurations. A 30 date North American acoustic"One Night, Two Albums" tour, where they played Cake and I'veSeen Everything in their entirety, was followed by a full-bandsupporting slot in the UK with Del Amitri, as well as their ownheadline shows in the UK and elsewhere.In 2019, the band is beginning the creative process for a newalbum, while its acoustic lineup reprises the "One Night, TwoAlbums" tour concept. Spanning North America for six weeks inthe Fall, the band will play both A Happy Pocket andWeightlifting (celebrating its 15 year anniversary) in theirentirety.Official Studio Album Discography:1990 - Cake1993 - I've Seen Everything1996 - A Happy Pocket2004 - Weightlifting2009 - In the Music2016 - Wild Pendulum
