ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"AMERICAN TRASH - yeah I heard of that, isn't that a bar?
Yes, the name came from a bar in New York City across the street from the singer's apartment.
There is something incredibly appropriate about the name American Trash. Here's this dark, dirty, loud, Harley Davidson, Rock'n'Roll bar that blasts Motorhead every hour on the hour dead smack in the middle of this yuppie, ladies who lunch, stroller gridlock Upper East side neighborhood. It doesn't fit...doesn't belong. The neighbors have been trying to shut it down forever. But they can't. It thrives. Due to the loyal, hard drinking patrons that need this oasis.
So now, here's this dark, dirty, loud band that sounds like a cross between Guns n Roses, AC/DC, Ozzy and Alice In Chains. A little old school, a little punk, a little fast, in the middle of this teen pop, rap rock, white boy dreadlock music scene. American Trash... It just rocks. Really, really hard. What else could they possibly call it?
Formed in 2000, all the members knew each other from other bands that would cross paths at New Haven's 'Toads Place'. They've all been through the ringer. Everybody had been in bands that would've, should've, could have. At this point they all just wanted it hard and fast. Nothing to do with what's fashionable or trendy...City, Suburban, dirt bag, six pack, Muscle-car music for people like us who like that shit.
One of the guitar players ran JØETOWN studios and the group set up there with no agenda. The first record, "The Bourbon Experiment" was recorded over a few weekend sessions with the booze flowing. Nobody wanted to think too much or deal with trying to fit things outside of the musical bag, the direction happened pretty organically. The record kicks...there was a spark in the reckless abandon approach to the songwriting. The tunes like "Time Bomb," "Starbaby," and "Brain Grenade" do it.
Then they thought who knows? Maybe this will catch on. Maybe when you stop doing what you think you have to do, and do what you do, it clicks. They got serious. The live shows are explosive. Couple kinks in the beginning. Little too much rock n roll show with the Rock'n'Roll show. But they got on the stick, Got a great thing going in NYC at the Continental, good crowds. Couple trips to LA, la land, some shows, some studios. And, BAM, 2003, the second record, 'The Element Of Doom' drops the bomb.
American Trash has come into their own. The influences fermented into their own blend. A unique immediately identifiable sound, everything old is new again. The songwriting went next level - "Hole In My Soul," "Make the Call" and "Devil" have got the industry on notice. Whether it's going to blow up international or just plain blow up, it's going to be entertaining.

Great CD...Quite Different From Bourbon Experiment
Just like title says, this cd is pretty great, but very different from The Bourbon Experiment. A lot darker, heavier, and all around more on the metal/industrial side than anything these guys have done before. Tracks like "Make The Call" and "Devil" make the cd worth buying on their own, but everything else here is stellar as well. Congrats guys, on another success. You know I'm waiting for the next one.

Just Awsome
This cd is the greatest, they have a unique sound that captures your ears. Being that my uncle is the bass player for american trash, I would have to say they are just amazing. My favorite songs are, make the call, devil, all my angels, simmer slips the burn, and parachute.

In short, American Trash kicks ass!
It's great that there are bands like American Trash still out there rockin' and keepin' it alive. I believe American Trash could be right up there rockin' w/the big dogs. With their own unique sound these guys can really hold their own. Their CD Element of Doom kicks ass.

Awesome CD!!!
This is the first CD I've purchased from American Trash and after listening to it, I purchased their first CD also! Make the Call and Hole in my Soul really rocked and I am constantly playing Simmer Slips to Burn and All my Angels. These guys really get the blood flowing - Great CD to rock to!
