Flamin’ Oh’s:
Originally named Flamingo, the band was threatened with a lawsuit by a 1950’s group of the same name. So, they dropped the “g”, split the original word, and became known thereafter as the Flamin’ Oh’s.Meanwhile, fans and critics took note of their live shows and exciting brand of straightforward rock & roll.  The Oh’s quickly soared to the upper echelon of Minnesota bands. In the 1980’s, they played to packed Twin Cities clubs (such as The Cabooze, Duffy’s and the Longhorn), toured internationally, and played at legendary New York clubs including Max’s Kansas City and the Peppermint Lounge.

The Flamin’ Oh’s became one of the earliest bands to make music videos. Chuck Statler(music video pioneer who directed videos for DEVO, Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe and El Vez) directed two videos for the band. The videos aired on a new television network dedicated to music, MTV.
 “Hard edged Stones-like rock’n’roll. East Coast street anthems coupled with Midwestern optimism and enthusiasm.” (Minneapolis Star Tribune)

Garage, Glam, Punk, Pop, and good ol’ Rock-n-Roll are all the ingredients in a typical Trash Street song. All with a mixture of simple chord progressions overlaid with blazing guitar solos, thundering bass and pounding drums.

Formed in 2017, the musicians in Trash Street are former and current members of Fret Rattles, Red Pens, Mood Swings, Narco States, The Sex Rays, The Violent Shifters, Fuck Knights, Animal Gods, Oblong Boxers, Dead Man Boys Choir and more.
