Wanna be in a band? Be in this one. They're cool as fuck, and I haven't heard an album like this in a while.'Trash Money' I thought they were gonna be like ANOTHER Strokes, with a name like that. Too cool for school, but instead they are dance/electro/alternative lots of things I can't quite put my finger on. With the coolest chick on guitar since Chrissy Hind they could potentially be commercial in the selling lots of records, not the selling out kinda way.
'You Lied Satan' is just the funniest smiley song, with a very Archie Bronson Outfit sound on the verses. This is probably my favourite song on the whole album.,'Jean City' is by far the catchiest track, a sing-along chorus a radio would be happy to show off. However, they get more alternative and edgier as it progresses, with crowd pleasing songs like 747 being led by the bass line that you can't help but shout along.
Make sure you don't lose faith after a couple of not so danceable tracks at the end of the album. The last two tracks are little gems trust me.'Million Pound Note' sounds like should be on the sound track to the original batman series.
There is an overwhelming show of sadness in 'Lucky' the only ballad on this record. ````it shows this band don't seem to be a one trip pony with their writing, it has many levels. But we'll see once we get a second album won't we... - Artrocker Mgazine.


In the best rock'n'roll spirit, Trash Money are a fabulously noisy whirl of contradictions-real humdinger harmonies sprung from a raucous soundclash. They've described their music as ' a bit like a jukebox being pushed down a flight of stairs'-but Trash Money are a whole lot tighter sounding then that suggests, wielding a fistful of brilliantly danceable numbers from the swaggering, melodramatically bluesy funk of the single You Lied Satan to the throbbing electro and glammy rock riffs of Take It Like A Man, or the deep and dirty bassline groove of Jean City, with it's insistent refrain: 'Do you wanna go out tonight?.
On that note, this one-off show is the launch for Trash Money's self titled debut album-including the aforementioned stompers and well worth the wait. Over the past few years, Trash Money have earned a solid rep for high energy live performances (dynamic drumming and bass guitar stands out besides those dual vocals):they're seriously enjoyable, even if they kick out the jams with self-depricting humour. There seems to be a sneaky ongoing theme tonight, too:support includes Trash Fashion(who are responsible for a maddeningly catchy rock cover of a rave classic Evapor8), plus a DJ set from Trash Pussies. Get down and feel the quality. - Metro

It's a brave or foolhardy band indeed that takes inspiration from Earl Brutus, the brilliant but wilfully unsaleable northern art-rockers whose brief major-label career may represent the highwater mark of post-Britpop sign-anything lunacy.
But Earl Brutus are virtually the only identifiable influence on Trash Money:the shouty vocals and guitar riffs of 747 and Marshall Stacks sound like their thuggish electro-glam relocated from a grimy Sheffield pub to a mythic 1970's LA of coked-out excess.
Eisewhere, it's pleasingly tough to work out what else the London duo might have been listening to:the acoustic melody of Lucky chafes against Take it Like a Man's homoerotic metal-disco.It's multiple personalities make their debut a hard sell- and it's not entirely clear how high the irony meter is set-but Trash Money sound like nothing else around. - The Guardian.

Bio

What are your influences?

Chris:Songs they don't play on the radio!!..unless you happen to be listening to one of the stations where the dj's still have some vague autonomy like 6music maybe?

What's your least obvious influence then?

Chris:Theres a few,my record collection is pretty expansive,you know the kind where you have to think about getting re-inforced floorboards.Probably Abba or something British and folky like The Incredible String Band-wonderful meandering melodies but their lyrics are awe inspiring.

Molly..on the new album you've taken over from Joe(Wilson) co-writing whats that been like for you?

Molly:It's been a great learning experience foi me.With Trash what is needed is a lightness of touch, a pop sensibility and a lot of humour. In the past I have tended to almost over right lyrically. so. This process has made me less precious and really be brutal and cut a lot out and simplify. It's very liberating.

Do you have any recurring dreams or nightmares?

Molly; Oh yeah constantly.My dream life is very vivid and exhausting. Tha most common one is trying to drive up streets that are so steep they are verticall.And being behind the wheel of an out of control vehicle. What could it all mean?
Chris:I have one where John Lydon comes to me to teach me the mystical secret of writing a great song,its a formula and I have managed to write it down but I'm not telling you what it is..

How do you work out your live set and which songs do you most like playing live?

Chris:Often it depends on how long they'll let us play for,we never do encores we really like to keep the energy of the set up short and sharp.I'm digging playing the songs off the new album especially as they seem to be going down really well but also from the Trashmoney album there are certainly kind of finale go out with a bang tunes like 747 that I love to play.
Molly:I like gigs that hold a little back so you leave on high rather than fucking off to the bar. Basically a lot of energy building from start to end. I don't think we are the kind of band to bring it down mid set, we're more of the short sharp shock. Having said that we do have a ballad that gets an airing every once in a while. As to which is my favourite to play? What can I say I love 'em all.

Your tracks have been used on T.V and in Hollywood?Seen any great movies lately?

Chris:There have been some killer British Indie films made in the last 2 years.I loved 'Bronson' shades of the Surreal and a Kubrick Hyper-Real and a glorious soundtrack too!
Molly:I'm not really into that many current movies. I like a lot of film noir , something like Sunset Boulevard would be a perfect evening.

Barney..whats it like being in Trash Money from behind the drum kit?

Barney:Being in Trash Money is like finding you have a winning lottery ticket and then leaving it in your jeans when you stick it in the wash.As for gigs,Trash gigs are a remedy to all that over-serious,self-obsessed "hear my angst" bollox-I've had my fill of that crap.Trash gigs are theatrical,irreverent,free and liberating..and just a little bit gay.

Chris you like to wear make up do you still wear it when you go around the corner to buy milk?

Chris:It depends..if I've been up all night then yeah.I just admire people who make an effort with how they look.Wearing make up is just like putting on a fine hat or polishing your shoes really.

What is Trash Money most looking forward to in the next 12 months?

Chris:Definitely playing more shows than we have been.Writing the new album has curtailed that a little but I can't wait to play more of the new songs to more ears.Also we have lots of exciting plans including some film ideas but I can't say much more about that just now.
Molly:Playing SXSWt next year.Gigging in the U.S will be great for the band and all those that get to see us of course..wink..wink..
