Trash

Swampy Dunedin rock act comprised of ex-Alpaca Brothers Paul Cahill and Bruce Blucher, plus Robbie Yeats (The Renderers / Dead C) and Andre Richardson.

They were fast furious guitar [band] with thumping bass, made one EP and had a great song called The Infinite Tick. Later they became Trash Hotel [who recorded as just Trash] and were involved in a more theatrical chaos.. Started performing The Trash Hotel at The Art Gallery … Infamous performance and that ended with a supicious burglary of the Art Gallery.. No one found to blame. Later Bruce and Nick wanted to take the Trash Hotel overseas and went to Thailand and bought a bar here they were to form the real “Trash Hotel” although it was short lived as the local prostitutes that wanted to protect their patch forced the boys to leave by gunpoint.

In 1993, a curious one-off 7″ from Bill Meyer’s excellent Rolf Bolt label appeared in the form of Brown Velvet Couch – who were essentially trash, but led by the smooth vocals of Viv Crowe, and also an album and single from Cyclops, which featured both Richardson and Blucher.
