“One of the finest country rockin’ bands in the UK” – Time Out
Made up of members of The Sindys, The Astronauts, Redmaxx and Los Chicos Muertos, The Trailer Trash Orchestra is something of a Trashville super-group. The band came together through a shared love of Country-Noir and Trash Rock 'n' Roll, and their sound pretty much reflects this - like Johnny Cash meeting the Ramones at a party thrown by Gram Parsons who's got The Pogues and Ween in as house bands.
Within a year of getting together the band were playing storming sets at small festivals, and this led to a prestigious booking at Glastonbury Festival's infamous Lost Vagueness stage. Since then the band have played at many festivals and venues around the UK including Bestival, Boomtown, Endorse it in Dorset, Rhythms of the World and The Acoustic Festival of Great Britain.
In 2009 the band released their first studio album, Shakin’ The Dead, through their own Trashville Imprint. The album garnered 5 star reviews and has continued to sell well since. In 2011 the band released a collaborative album with legendary Vibrators front-man Knox – The Knoxville Boy to great acclaim, and promoted the album live at many venues. The brand new album “Grave Tales” is also available on both vinyl and CD formats.
The band have also backed up Ed Tudorpole a number of times live on Swords of a Thousand Men as well as having shared the stage with acts as diverse as TV Smith, The UK Subs, The Vibrators, Wreckless Eric, The Subways, Enter Shikari, The Beat, Hayseed Dixie, Arno and Sid Griffin.
As well as their Trashville releases the band have appeared on a number of compilation albums, most notably The Cramps Tribute “Goddamn Rock ‘n' Roll” along with The Jesus and Mary Chain and Queens of the Stone Age.
The luxuriant blend of fuzzed up guitars, voodoo-swamp drumming and plaintive pedal-steel, fiddle and mandolin make for an intoxicating, addictive and original sound that instills spine tingling delirium whether blasted from a festival stage or in a small sweaty club. Caustic self penned numbers are augmented by distinctly off kilter interpretations of country, trash and alt-rock gems whilst hats, tats and low-slung attitude leap from stack to stack in frenzied ecstasy!
