I breakdown (Trash) #403

Trash Golden Slumbers, Carry That Weight/ Trash Can   (Apple Records, APPLE 17, 1969)

Trash (a.k.a. White Trash) were a Scottish band that found themselves releasing two singles on The Beatles Apple Records label. Lucky, lucky bastards!

I only have the one - their undistinguished pre Abbey Road take on Paul's Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight. It was produced by Tony Meehan - he of The Shadows fame.

Hidden gem: Trash Can - geddit? - starts out as a bit of a dirge but then has some nice prog organ flourishes and soulful vocals which hint at a productive direction. It proves Trash, erm, could, but as far as Apple goes it was a case of see ya, it's been real!
