The Little Lighthouse

The Trashed Romeos - Where Dreamers Never GoSan Francisco is maybe the hottest rock’n’roll town at the moment. But, in the world of The Little Lighthouse, the rock’n’roll capital is still in Memphis, TN. On our year end list, six albums are from Memphis and only two are from San Francisco. But only one of those records reflects the spirit of rock’n’roll in its most traditional, old fashioned way and it’s from Memphis and it’s all about Memphis. It’s the Trashed Romeos record Where Dreamers Never Go.

Trashed Romeos is put together by Greg Roberson who has been a fixture in the Memphis underground through his involvement with Reigning Sound and Tiger High. Rick Steff from Lucero and Memphis musical guru Adam Hill also joined in to help. As the tagline says, this record is a love letter to Memphis and in particular, the bands that gathered around the legendary Jim Dickinson. The concept was clear, Trashed Romeos took their favorite obscure Memphis rock’n’roll and garage singles and covered each of them. Jim Dickinson appears as a songwriter in several songs and on two clear highlights on the record. His own obscure song The Grass is Never Greener, which is almost impossible to find in the original and he also closes the record with a touching title song, posthumously becoming one of the Trahsed Romeos.

Horn section is added to several songs, which contributes to the sheer ferocity of the resulted sonic delivery. Trashed Romeos gave us a gift of past and they extended the life of these obscure underground singles now delivered in a fresh, crisp new package. This is a must-have for all rock’n’roll devotees and scholars.
