was a group from Glasgow, Scotland, consisting of Ian Crawford
as lead singer, Fraser Watson on lead guitar, Colin Hunter-Morrison
on bass, Ronald Leahy on organ and Timi Donald as percussionist.
The band’s manager brought a tape of their recording
of the Gerry Gofffin-Carole King song Road To Nowhere to
Apple, where it was favorably received by George and Paul.
The label quickly signed the group, then know as the Path
finders. Because their name was considered old-fashioned,
it was changed to White Trash. The name was shortened to
Trash when the BBC informed Apple that it would not play
the band’s record because their name was offensive.
In America, Road To Nowhere b/w Illusions was released as
Apple 1804 on March 3, 1969. The single did not chart. The
group’s followup single, released as Apple 1811 on
October 15, 1969, paired their recording of the Beatles
Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight from the “Abbey
Road” medley with Trash Can. When that single also
failed to chart, Apple lost interest in the group.
