Trashmen

The Trashmen were an American rock band formed in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 1962. The group's original lineup was Tony Andreason on lead guitar and vocals, Dal Winslow on guitar and vocals, Steve Wahrer on drums and vocals, and Bob Reed on bass guitar. The group played surf rock which included elements from garage rock. They have been described as being, along with Colorado-based band the Astronauts, "the premier landlocked Midwestern surf group of the '60s."

Peel probably heard the Thrashmen when he was living in America, especially in 1963, when the group's biggest hit was "Surfin' Bird", which reached No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the latter part of that year. He would continue playing some of the group's material, when he came back from the US in 1967. Some of Peel's favourite groups including the Ramones and the Cramps covered Surfin' Bird.
