The Trash Can Sinatras ‎– Only Tongue Can Tell (12″)


Continuing the indie

From the 1990 album, “Cake” this Scottish band was fronted by Francis Reader (vocals, acoustic guitar) Eddie Reader’s brother, with Paul Livingston (lead guitar), John Douglas (rhythm guitar, vocals), Grant Wilson (bass) and Stephen Douglas (drums, backing vocals)

Shades of Morrisey and a hint of Prefab Sprout. This is a real grower. Acoustic jangle all the way. The quality does stop with “Useless” a gentle track with biting lyrics that Beautiful South would be proud of. “Tonight You Belong Me” is a gentle cover of an old 30’s sing, duet ting with his sister Richael and featuring in the film “The Jerk”
