The Donovan Of Trash is a truly punk record; a DIY, lo-fi milestone containing some of Wreckless Eric's finest songs, a fact sadly overlooked at the time of its original release in 1993 by fans and critics unable to get beyond the harsh, weird and often dissonant sound to discover the beauty within.

This Fire Records reissue, remastered and repackaged under Eric's direction will do much to rectify this lamentable oversight.

More fractured and frenetic than his preceding album, Le Beat Group Électrique The Donovan Of Trash makes Eric's earlier, supposedly punk/new wave recordings sound positively middle of the road by comparison.

He used the same recording equipment as on Le Beat Group Électrique - a Teac 1/4" four track tape recorder and an ancient WEM Audiomaster five channel mixing desk plus a variety of two track tape machines and discarded studio junk rescued from recording suite refurbishments during the 1980s.
