The Trash (Dayton Ohio, Band) at Bad Racket Recording Studio 2011
In late 2011 maybe December or something like that, my friend Spencer Byrnes hit me up with a phone call from Dayton saying he knew this band that wanted to come up to Cleveland to record a record. We cut the songs in a few days or maybe a day I don’t remember.
You can listen to a few other jams below.
:”It ain’t wrong in Kentucky” speaks to Kentucky laws where sex with a 16 year old was considered consensual, Zoophilia (sex with animals) was not considered illegal, but consensual sex between adults of the same sex in private was considered illegal and punishable by 12 months in jail and a fine of up to $500 up until 1992.
I’m Quitting Monday
was Spencer’s song I think. Its the down-tempo tune of the group. “I’m quitting monday. I’m quitting monday, i no longer need this shit… i don’t need this shit anymore…. it’s not hard to understand, you give up to my demands or i’m quitting monday…..it should come as no surprise… that i finally give realize i got nothing to offer you.” .
King of the Scene
“Shit heads anonymous fat hippopotamus….thinks he’s up, when he’s down… the king of the scene the king of everything….” Everybody in a band that plays out knows some guy like this….he only listens to vinyl and is generally constructed out of the dust that comes out of the back of old guitar cabinets… he never liked anything recorded after 1995…but he’s the king of the local “scene”….a social patriarchy that governs your local music scene where the most self destructive alcoholic is allowed to ruthlessly rage out over his lesser subjects in a know-it-all-…un-accepting of other peoples beliefs…type attitude. Anyone who doesn’t agree or who has a different point of view is deemed lower, and anyone who agrees with said ass-hole (the king honcho poncho ) gets to move up in rank. A lot of shouting and disagreeance by use of loud opinionated statements are used to beat down opposing viewpoints in an absolute certitude and lack of willingness to accept other perspectives. So remember kids… keep your ideas to yourself! because that’s the way things are (i guess) If you don’t like it, just throw a tantrum already.
“Everyone is afraid….she don’t know she don’t ask why just return a glance from the the motorcycle eye…”..reminds me of when I got my first bike… a Kawasaki 250. You know the gross boxy bikes with the tiny engine…. kind of a rice rocket suitable for a 100lb asain…which is approximately how much I weighed as a senior in high-school when I wrecked it the night before prom into a stump on high-side roll into a turn that sent me flying down the ditch like superman through the mud. I’ve had many motorcycles since then, most of them pretty crappy, and all of them pretty fun.
This project was awesome…and the pizza was dope. The Trash might as well been called recycle, because the band pulled from the same mix of Zeppelin Stones and Skynard that I used to listen to a lot … too bad The Trash broke up in 2014. https://www.facebook.com/GetTrashed?v=info&tab=page_info
