In the wonderfully insane world of the Trashmen it makes perfect sense that one of the most stupendous, drywall-rattling surf bands ever would come from Minneapolis - about as far from the beach-and-bikini scene as you can get! Anyone Who's ever been severely jolted by Trashmen anthems like "Surfin' Bird" and "Bird Dance Beat" knows the unparalleled joy of flailing about helplessly to Tony Andreason's blistering guitar and the manic, rumbling vocals of drummer Steve Wahrer. If only Trashmen records had been loaded into that outward-bound rocket ship years ago, the galaxy would be a much safer place today!

    Industry weasels have called us "insane" for even considering a 4-CD Trashmen box set. Of course, that very lack of foresight is what makes them weasels in the first place. You, our discerning friends, might concur on the "insanity" thing, but will also know instantly that this is indeed the Motherlode, possibly the very reason God put Sundazed on this fine earth, our legacy to the ages. Fifty years from now, direct electronic stimulation of the cortex will have obsoleted...

        Regularly packing regional Midwest venues with their incendiary live shows, The Trashmen's pal Mike Jann rightly concluded that these performances needed to be documented for posterity. Bringing his portable reel-to-reel tape recorder to Minneapolis’ St. Paul’s Whiskey A Go-Go, Jann captured the two previously unreleased performances in August 1966. Before a hometown crowd, The Trashmen threw down the bird dance beat with an authority born of road-hardened chops. No Pro-Tools, no Autotune, no...
