Trashcan Sinatras

Today, I had SXSW on my mind. One of the best things about the last two years of SXSW, was that one of my favorite bands, Trashcan Sinatras played loads of shows at each. I have my fingers crossed that this will make it three years in a row. When I had first heard them in 1990, I thought they sounded like The Smiths, and to be fair, their first album, Cake, did have a slight tinge of Morrissey and Marr to it. This wasn't a bad thing. In fact, it's the main reason I paid attention to them. The same thing can be said for Gene and Voxtrot. Surprisingly enough, all three of these bands soldiered on and became each their own amazingly unique and individual selves.

I've caught these guys at the last two SXSWs, too. I agree; I hope they come back. It wouldn't be SXSW without them.
