  The Trashmen - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Trashmen were a rock and roll band formed in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 1962.
The Trashmen's major notable hit was 1963's "Surfin' Bird", which reached #4 on the Billboard charts in the latter part of that year.
The Trashmen went on to have 5 other hit singles on the charts; they would be prolific enough to later release a 4-CD box set of their work.

 Opinions 59 - Comics Reality Checks I: The Three Trashmen Tests (Jun 2001)
I hold with some sentiment a particular collection of music by a band from the sixties called "the Trashmen," a band that unashamedly proclaimed themselves as the first surf band from Minnesota.
The Trashmen Tests provide a line, and much in recorded musical media clearly stands on one side or the other of this separation.
With the Trashmen Tests operating as neccessary conditions, they nonetheless fail as sufficient ones in pieces such as the aforementioned title.

 CMT.com : The Trashmen : Biography
Unfairly depicted as a novelty act, the Trashmen were in actuality a top-notch rock & roll combo, enormously popular on the teen-club circuit, playing primarily surf music to a landlocked Minnesota audience.
They re-formed in the mid-'80s and continued to play locally until Wahrer's death.
The Trashmen are revered by '60s collectors as one of the great American teen-band combos of all time, their lone hit exemplifying wild, unabashed rock & roll at its most demented, bare-bones-basic, lone-E-chord finest.

Although there's no shortage of Trashmen records out there (a 4 CD box set, a live album, outtakes), and none of it's waste product, this expanded version of the Minnesota surf gonzos' 1964 debut (and only contemporary) album is the best way to find out if their trash is worth your cash.
If this sounds appealing (and there's no earthly reason it shouldn't), there are more delights within, although only "Bird Bath" attempts (unsuccessfully) to match the hit.
