White Trash

Trash were a British pop group who recorded briefly for Apple Records in the late 1960s.

Made up of ex-members of The Pathfinders and The Poets, they were given the name White Trash by Richard DiLello, the Apple liaison officer who wrote a book about his times at the label called The Longest Cocktail Party. DiLello also penned all the biographies for the label's artists. The name White Trash, was not only in use in the USA by Edgar & Johnny Winter but deemed offensive in Britain, hence the change to the one word Trash.

The band issued only two singles, both cover versions: Carole King's "Road To Nowhere" and the Beatles' "Golden Slumbers" (at the time one of the tracks on the forthcoming Beatles' album Abbey Road). This single made the Top 30 but the band disappeared shortly after.
