Hailing from Sacramento California, Trash Talk is the newest addition to Odd Future records. Predominately labeled as a “hype” band by Internet nerds and people that just got hip to the hardcore scene, Trash Talk’s D.I.Y. ethics are second to none. From touring constantly, to creating their own record collective, Trash Talk is easily one of the hardest working bands out right now. 2005 saw the release of Trash Talk’s first demo and later, after signing to Rumble Records, the band put out their debut album Walking Disease. Trash talk is currently on tour in support of their newest album 119, which was released earlier this year on the Odd Future label. Playing mainly Odd Future after-party shows, ATX is fortunate enough to be on one of the bands stops. Trash Talk will be tearing up the stage at Red 7 on Friday, December 7th.
The show is gaining exponential buzz as it was recently announced that Austin legends Iron Age have been added to the bill, prompting many die hard fans to travel to the live music capitol of the world from all over the state and even beyond. Impalers, a side project of Mammoth Grinder’s Chris Ulsh, will also be on the performing. Without a doubt this will be one of the wildest shows Austin has seen all year, and with such an active music scene, that’s no easy feat to accomplish.
Trash Talk has shown much love to the city of Austin. One of the more memorable shows for me was during a SXSW showcase, in which lead singer Lee Spielman acted as the maestro of chaos, orchestrating stage dives, head walks, front flips into the crowd, pile-ons, and even throwing equipment around. What a fury to be a part of! I still have a scar on my right wrist from Spielman hurling a mic stand into the crowd. Trash Talk really knows how to fuel the fire and are sure to always give the best damn performance you’ll ever witness.
Internet shit talkers beware: show up to a Trash Talk show and I promise you, one way or another, you will get hurt! Nowhere is safe, not even the back. You can’t hide behind your girl friend- the crowd will engulf her too! Come one, come all! Welcome to the cluster fuck of chaos that is Trash Talk!
