Bukowski said if he'd been born a woman he would have been a prostitute.
Well, if I'd been born a woman I would have wanted to be a Trashwoman.
Or at least a close approximation of.
Without doubt The Trashwomen are my favourite of the trashy-post-punk-garage-surf-rockabilly [is rockabilly gendered?] bands; they knocked spots off so many of their better known contemporaries.
And here's their debut album, capturing them at their best.
Every track's a killer. But just check out 'Justine', one of the best punk-surf tunes ever.
Their signature 'I'm Trash' is a raucous, rousing call to the depraved everywhere.
You'll soon be hooked; singing along, and wishing, like me, that you'd been a Trashwoman too.
