MUSIC NEWS- Trashbeat, the new rock & roll brainchild of bassist Steve Trash, has released a teaser track for download. “Toys” will appear on Trashbeat’s upcoming full-length album (to be released in 2014 via Major Label) features guest appearances from members of the Sex Pistols, Blondie, and the Stranglers. "Toys” is a chunky, beat-driven track with chiming chords and a snarling vocal attitude reminiscent of the late ‘60s-early ‘70s punk and new wave movements. With nods to Bowie, Iggy, Small Faces, Modern Lovers and such, it sounds like the next generation of rock.
The progressive hybrid of punk, glam, and alternative, Trashbeat’s sound is informed by and filtered
through Trash’s music and art background. He came up in the punk/art rock movement, but also studied modern composition. Art without boundaries, figuratively and literally, as he works in both London and Los Angeles. His recording and touring resume includes work with Paul McCartney, Roy Orbison, KD Lang and Elton John as well as Stranglers, Attractions, Damned, Sex Pistols
Among the legendary guests on the Trashbeat record are Hugh Cornwell, Clem Burke, Glen Matlock, and Richie Ramone. The record is produced by Trash and Arnaud Bascunana, Steve Trash is touring with former Strangler, Hugh Cornwell this fall and art-punk legends Chrome in 2014.
