ABOUT THE 'TRASH ROCK ARCHIVES' RESEARCH PROJECT.

THE ARCHIVE WAS STARTED BY AL BIRD SPUTNIK IN 2007 WITH THE MAIN FOCUS TO MAKE LOST AND FORGOTTEN POP AND UNDERGROUND MUSIC FROM AUSTRIA'S PAST ACCESSIBLE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC. IT QUICKLY FOUND ITS AUDIENCE THROUGH A STRING OF ARTICLES, RADIO SHOWS, VIDEO STREAMING CHANNELS, DISK JOCKEY-APPEARANCES AND LECTURES ON THE TOPIC. AT THE MOMENT A STANDARD REFERENCE BOOK ABOUT THE AUSTRIAN BEAT-BAND MOVEMENT OF THE SIXTIES AND EARLY SEVENTIES IS IN THE MAKING. UNTIL NOW WE MET AND INTERVIEWED AROUND 100 PEOPLE THAT HAVE PLAYED IN AUSTRIAN BANDS IN THE TIMESPAN OF 1955 TO 1985. FOR SPECIAL REQUESTS OR DONATIONS TO THE ARCHIVE PLEASE CONTACT US HERE.
