Steady Sounds steady03 The Trash Company Earle Hotel Tapes 1979 - 1993

Completely inscrutable and incredible outsider bedroom synth-funk from the Trash Company, the project of Richmond, VA resident Max Monroe. The Trash Company started as a Funkadelic/Hamilton Bohannon-influenced group in 1975, played their first gig in a local high school dance a couple years later, and even managed to record a lone single at a state of the art studio in 1979 before thoroughly dissolving as a group not long after. Monroe kept on churning out material for the next thirty years, however, little of which has ever been unleashed on the public until this archival release spanning the 1970s to the 1990s, put together by the awesome Richmond record shop Steady Sounds and up-and-coming Washington D.C. record label People's Potential Unlimited, who specialize in reissuing leftfield dance music.
