THE TRASHMEN

The Trashmen are a surf rock band formed in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 1962. The Trashmen's biggest hit was 1963's "Surfin' Bird". The song was a combination of two R&B hits by The Rivingtons, "The Bird's the Word" and "Papa-Oom-Mow-Mow". The earliest pressings of the single credit the Trashmen as composers, but following a threat from The Rivingtons' legal counsel, that group was subsequently credited as composers. The song was later re-recorded by artists including the Ramones and The Cramps. It has been used in filmmaking and television productions including, most notably, Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket. More recently, the song was the subject of a 2008 episode of the animated series Family Guy, launching the song to No. 8 on the iTunes Top 10 Rock songs chart. Additionally, in 2010 a Facebook campaign was launched to get the song to No. 1 in the UK over Christmas; this was largely intended as a protest against the takeover of the Christmas No. 1 spot by The X Factor winner's song. The Trashmen went on to have other hit singles on the charts. In 1964, "Bird Dance Beat" reached No. 30 on the Billboard in the United States. Five other Trashmen singles charted, and overall the group released fourteen singles. The group disbanded in 1967 but reunited in the 1980s, playing together until the death of Steve Wahrer, who died of cancer in 1989. They toured Europe 2009 with gigs in Germany, The Netherlands, France, Spain, Belgium, Italy, and Austria. Following up again in 2010, they added Norway, Sweden and Finland to the mix. As of 2013, they continue to tour extensively in Europe and they also play selected dates and festivals in the United States. The band recently recorded four tracks at Custom Recording Studios in Golden Valley, Minnesota with longtime fan and acclaimed guitarist Deke Dickerson for the Major record label, releasing a 45 titled "I'm A Trashman" in March of 2013.
