Voodoo Rhythm Records recording artists Trixie and The Trainwrecks (USA/UK) play blues and folk the new way with the battle scars of the old themes.
From San Francisco and London via Berlin here comes some loud, over-driven, bittersweet, rip your heart out and wear it on your sleeve blues. Working class folk blues from the church of Bluestrash.
Trixie Trainwreck shreds her guitar and kicks out the jams on her bass drum and hihat while Charlie Hangdog blows his brains out on harmonica. They take it as it comes and play it like it is.
Because they have to. And a lifetime of doing things their own way has brought their paths to cross and to create one hell of a sound. The sound of the road less taken.

Wild child, Trixie Trainwreck aka Trinity Sarratt was born in San Francisco and moved to Berlin on a whim when she was 18.
She started her musical endeavors in the underground trains back in 1999 and went on to make a name for herself working in and promoting shows in almost every bar in town as well as touring the EU and the USA with a handful of bands (Kamikaze Queens, Cry Babies, Runaway Brides) and most recently with her one woman show as Trixie Trainwreck No Man Band.
She’s probably the hardest working girl in showbiz… and a mother, too!!
When Dylan Walshe introduced Trixie Trainwreck to Charlie Hangdog on the premise of playing around London, no one could have predicted what would happen next. After a handful of shows and what may have been a one- off session with Bruce Brand (Thee Headcoats, Milkshakes, Holly Golightly, Hipbone Slim) and Paul Seacroft (The Selecter, worked with Jim Jones, Urban Voodoo Machine), they would end up recording a whole album with Ed Deegan at the amazing Gizzard Studios for Voodoo Rhythm Records!
Well, that’s just what happened and this is what we got just 3 action packed days later! Recorded 99% live and analogue, here comes 13 overdriven-long-gone-broken-hearted-country-blues-trash numbers from the wrong side of the tracks. And it feels so right.
“3 Cheers to Nothing” sums up the last 18 years of the San Francisco born, Berlin based Trixie Trainwreck in exile, taking you along on her personal adventures and inner struggles with the ghosts of yesterdays past, angels, demons, and everything in between.
The sound is just as unexpected as the rest. We call it Trainwreck Blues!
TRIXIE TRAINWRECK NO MAN BAND
For those of you who have not yet heard Trixie Trainwreck and her No Man Band, I would hurry up. Trixie will never be lost to Berlin, but with her cultivated look and talent, we will soon only be able to see her between world tours.
With a rock steady rhythm guitar strum and the round boom of her one woman band bass drum, Trixie poured out heartfelt country ballads, with an occasional rock and roll growl, just in case you might think its an angel singing.
Catch her while you can.”Kevin Fletcher/ Indie Berlin
