“The Trashcan Bandits' name speaks of their light-hearted approach to life though the title of their first release, The Righteous and the Wicked. The bards in this Fayetteville-based band are Dane "Gumbo" Gamble on guitar; Patti "steel" Richardson on clarinet, mandolin, and spoons; Ed Cheek on bass and trumpet; and Nicholas Clark on drums, banjo, and glock. They all sing. Matt Beach adds trombone on "Make Me Wholly". Vocals on most of the album growl alongin a Tom Waits sort of sing speak ("Queen of Hearts', "Woke up this Morning") and a gypsy jazz beat ("Devil's Gold", "Hold On"), moving beween heavy waltz and straight time ("Brown Bear House"). The vocals bring thoughts of pirates ("All for me Grogg"), roaming ("On my Parents Back Porch, Make me Wholly") and wooden, dusky drinking halls ("What do you do with a Drunken Sailor?"). The rousing Flogging Molly-type anthem ("We Sing") possesses a touch of foot-stomping, beer-spilling Irish drinking music. Grab your copy from the Bandits..”
