Tube City! The Best of the Trashmen!
The Trashmen were a standout band from the surf era known mostly for their hit, “Surfin’ Bird.” That single captures much of the appeal of the band. They are at their best when they are going crazy and having goofy fun. They will often fall back into covering rock standards like “It’s So Easy” and the result is never as good when they’re doing their own crazy thing. Fortunately, they maintain a high level of stupidity through most of this disc. Oh, and the liner notes are fantastic.
