(Translated from the Italian by John Connors)

Trash Can School is a sextet with three guitars (J. Francis Connors, Jim Miller, Jack Gould) and a saxophone (Andy Seven). They debuted with the dark voodoobilly of Horses (Sympathy, 1989), backed with the wild, anthemic Phantasm III. Second single One Eyed Car (Dionysus, 1990) was backed with two delays masterpieces of punk fever, Subway Shriek and Satan' s Favored Groupie. Their third single (Sympathy, 1990) had the manic Baby Lust and the swinging rockabilly instrumental Yes I Mean No. All these singles were characterized by to terrifying rhythmic impetus. The spy theme Silver Surfer (1992) appeared on to compilation. On Sick Jokes And Wet Dreams (Sympathy, 1992) the tension of the blues vibrates-punk of the Birthday Party and the cerebration of the jazz-punk of Saccharine Trust. The following year Volume War gives back their hybrid punk, depurandolo of the intellectual drosses. In Taunt a guitar holds a melodic riff and dragging, from powerpop, even if the other raise barriers of distortions. The blues and the jazz of the roaring years flood in Taxidermist and Powershred, pieces in which the sax of Seven has way to clash the rhythms swing. Those sources are camouflaged in the refined harmony of Steorid Shock, dreamlike than exotic, jazz than rock, and excited in the Ballad Of Peter Green, between left cadences of marsh and tearing you recall bluesrock of the guitars. Only the urgent TV Blues has to something to the Cramps, only burning it Volume War has to something to the Stray Cats. For the remainder their interpretation of the blues is mature and austere. Andy Seven forms Cockfight with its wife Rebecca of Frightwig. J. Francis Connors, Jim Miller, and Jack Gould will form Black Angel' s Death Song.

Su Sick Jokes And Wet Dreams (Sympathy, 1992) vibra la tensione del blues-punk dei Birthday Party e la cerebralita` del jazz-punk dei Saccharine Trust.

L'anno seguente Volume War contribuisce rende piu` accessibile il loro ibrido, depurandolo delle scorie intellettuali. In realta` in Taunt una delle chitarre tiene sempre un riff melodico e trascinante, da powerpop, anche se le altre erigono barriere di distorsioni.

Il blues e il jazz degli anni ruggenti dilagano in Taxidermist e Powershred, brani in cui il sax di Seven ha modo di contrastare i ritmi swinganti. Quelle fonti sono mimetizzate nell'armonia raffinata di Steorid Shock, piu` onirica che esotica, piu` jazz che rock, ed esaltate nella Ballad Of Peter Green, fra sinistre cadenze di palude e laceranti richiami bluesrock delle chitarre. Soltanto l'incalzante TV Blues deve qualcosa ai Cramps, soltanto la bruciante Volume War deve qualcosa agli Stray Cats. Per il resto la loro interpretazione del blues e` molto piu` matura e austera.

Andy 7 formera` poi i Cockfight con sua moglie Rebecca delle Frightwig Jim Miller e Jack Gould formeranno i Black Angel's Death Song.

Big Bang Radiation School (Jinx, 2003) is a posthumous live album that reveals Trash Can School as a ferocious, visceral rock'n'roll band a` la Von Lmo (Everything Must Go) Fleshtones (Translation by/ Tradotto da xxx)
