Among late purveyors of Scotland's "twee-pop", the Trash Can Sinatras were the most obviously derivative of Aztec Camera but also the least tedious. The singles from debut album Cake (Go Discs, 1990), were refreshing and intriguing. It took three years to follow up that album, but I've Seen Everything (Go Discs, 1993) was probably worth the wait, if you are into majestic pop. Obscurity Knocks and Only Tongue Can Tell, the singles, pale in comparison with the sophisticated arrangements of songs like Hayfever. Artificial and vain, the Trash Can Sinatras' ditties were nonetheless more elaborate than the average. Another three-year hiatus gave the band time to sculpt the songs of A Happy Pocket (Go Discs, 1996). (Translation by/ Tradotto da Matteo Gentile)

Tra gli ultimi interpreti del twee pop scozzese, i Trash Can Sinatras erano il derivato pił ovvio degli Aztec Camera, ma anche il meno noioso. I singoli dall'album di debutto Cake (Go Discs, 1990) erano freschi e intriganti. Ci vollero tre anni per dare seguito a quell'album, ma probabilmente I've seen Everything (Go Discs, 1993) ne valse la pena, per quelli a cui piace un pop pił maestoso. I singoli Obscurity Knocks e Only Tongue Can Tell impallidiscono in confronto ai sofisticati arrangiamenti di canzoni come Hayfever . Artificiose e un po' presuntuose, le canzonette dei Trash Can Sinatras non erano tanto pił elaborate della media. Un altro periodo di tre anni ha dato alla band il tempo di comporre le tracce di A Happy Pocket (Go Discs, 1996).
