TRASH TRAXX was originally created as an endevour to get musicians making experimental music, via ficitious band names and heavy improvisation. The aim was to enable local musicians to play with their musical approach without having to worry about it impacting their main acts reputation.

One of the hardest pushes for TRASH TRAXX was TRASH TRAXX BEACH WEEK “Life’s a beach you son of a beach” which had a full 5 days of music by the act Round Glasses and Floral Shirts, who even made a live debut at the first official TRASHFEST.
People weren’t too interested in taking part so it was turned into a D.I.Y label for Trash Mammoth exports. TRASH TRAXX has also played host to collaborative projects like the Trashfest compilations and “A Town Called Quarantino” which was used to raise funds for a local food bank during COVID.
TRASH TRAXX is currently only used as a means for Trash Mammoth distribution.
TRASH TRAXX may return in its true form some day, but that’s up to you.
