Forget About the New Year

There is new Trash Face on their bandcamp.

The guitarist and singer of Trash Face had a near death experience when he was the victim of a car accident.

Exactly 8 years ago today he was flung face-first into a bus through the window of his mother’s minivan. He was in the ICU for a week before he was healthy enough to leave. Countless, and seemingly endless, surgeries had been performed on him during the majority of his stay. At the end of the week one surgery was left, but an interval of 7-10 years was required in between the thousands of surgeries he had already survived. He rented a 4 by 10 room separated by sheets during this time. People rarely visited him. This left him with all the time in the world to think about himself. He observed his bodily functions often which became the inspiration for the last 2012 Trash Face album entitled “Dos Graves”.

When 8 years passed, bringing us to this year, Drew passed the physical that approved him for the operation. He should have not been approved. His body had been so heavily sedated that his tolerance to the anesthetic made it impossible for him to be operated on comfortably. The doctor’s did not care about comfort and cut into him anyway exactly like that one song by Slayer. The pain became the inspiration for the last 2013 album by Trash Face entitled “Dos Graves Otra Vez”.
