“I Just Want To Go Home”

I’ve been obsessed with the Trashcan Sinatras since 1990 and for good reason–the Scottish outfit’s winning discography featuring albums like Cake, I’ve Seen Everything, Weightlifting

and In The Music is a perfect body of work. From the punchy pop of “Obscurity Knocks” to the

sweeping rush of “All The Dark Horses,” the Trashcan Sinatras’ sound is shimmering and pastoral.

They’ve toured rather extensively over the years and have an international fanbase that cherishes

every note. The recent reissue of Cake found their debut album hitting #2 on the charts and a new album is around the corner. In the meantime, guitarist John Douglas has just put out his debut solo album and it’s a stunner. A riveting 11-song collection featuring original material, a few Trashcan numbers and a Prefab Sprout cover of We Let The Stars Go, it’s a stirring song-cycle that’s nostalgic, achingly beautiful and emotionally precise. Douglas’ delivery is gentle and thoughtful and his phrasing is redolent with subtle flourishes that end up being unforgettable and deeply moving.
