The Trashed Romeos, led by Greg Roberson (Tiger High, Reigning Sound, Arthur Lee’s Love, Compulsive Gamblers), hail from the very epicenter of rock- n -roll, Memphis, Tn. Roberson has a pretty straight forward mission with his bands debut record Where Dreamers Never Go, to pay homage to his late friend Jim Dickinson (Bob Dylan, Rolling Stones, Big Star, The Replacements, Ry Cooder) and to focus attention on some of his hometown heroes and the obscure psychedelic garage rock 45’s they released in the mid 6o’s.
The Trashed Romeos feature, Roberson’s Tiger High band mates, Jake and Toby Vest, Rick Steff (Lucero, Cat Power) , and multi-instrumentalist and engineer Adam Hill (Big Star, Alex Chilton, White Stripes, The Raconteurs).
“Where Dreamers Never Go” is a love letter to Memphis and to Dickinson's legacy.
Both the Cd and Cassette packages for “Where Dreamers Never Go” include a 1968 photo of Jim Dickinson by Jim Marshall. Marshall is responsible for such iconic images as Jimi Hendrix burning his guitar at Monterey Pop and Johnny Cash flipping the bird at San Quentin.
The Trashed Romeos album "Where Dreamers Never Go" made #6 on Little Steven’s “Top 10 Coolest Albums In The World for 2013”.

"Nothing is perfect in this world, but The Trashed Romeos´s “Where Dreamers Never Go” . . . came pretty damn close to it. A highly addictive, and strangely accessible album, brimming with good vibes and plenty of weird jaunts. I can’t put it down, and I don’t really want to either.
Could this band get any better? This project, has morphed into a time machine, and each monstrous song gives off a totally different vibe. Deeply personal and painfully intricate, they’ve become a psych garage-entity very special to me…."

"Boasting members of Tiger High and Lucero, The Trashed Romeos have taken the spirit of 1960's rock and soul and funneled it through the musical heritage of their hometown

"Memphis based Garage-Rock icons `The Trashed Romeos` have recorded one of the most engaging mixes of 60`s Freakbeat, Garage, Soul and Psychedelic Rock this side of the first lunar landing."

"The Trashed Romeos have recorded a wonderful album of ultra-obscure tunes originally released by Memphis-area bands of the 60's . . . and the guys do them so well you would swear they were band originals ! ... Where Dreamers Never Go is original garage-pop at it's finest, taken into the new millenium by The Trashed Romeos. More bands need to do albums like this !"
