10 Songs about gambling, booze, whores, gun fights and wizards. Plus a song about a sick dog that... well, if it doesn't bring a tear to your eye, you're probably a robot.
Originally recorded in 2009, Trash Titan's first record was never officially released. It was just handed it out at shows on CD-Rs. In fact we handed out so many that we accidentally gave away our master copy and due to reasons beyond our control (evil wizards), the ProTools sessions were irretrievable. So essentially the album was "lost," until I happened upon a copy cleaning out my place getting ready to move.
So now, TT's debut is finally available as a digital download. Huzzah!
This was the two-piece iteration of the band. Jeff "Broadsword" Broady on drums, Collyn McCoy on vocals and "baguitar," which was really just a Les Paul copy strung up with both bass strings and guitar strings and tuned for open slide playing. A more primitive, bloozy affair than the 2010 EP (which added Rob Burns on proper guitar thus allowing Collyn to return to his native instrument, the proper bass), Trash Titan's debut was like something nasty from the gutter you can't quite scrape off you shoe. Picture the Black Keys getting anally violated by Black Sabbath while Howlin' Wolf guzzles Everclear cut with swamp sludge and you're in the AAA ball park.
Hope you cretins enjoy it.
