Trash Panda began in 2015, the year Patrick Taylor (AKA Lazuli Vane) experienced several months of seizure medication induced dissociation, which gave birth to the song "Off," followed by the rest of the songs on the Off EP.
After becoming roommates on Craigslist, Patrick asked Mitch Standfield to play drums on the EP, and coinciding with several raccoon attacks on their deck, Trash Panda was born. Just before the viral success of "Giuseppe" Patrick ran into long time friend Max Hewett at a party and recruited him to play bass. The band quickly solidified as a trio and began a creative journey, recording the 2018 follow up to the Off EP, entitled The Starclimber, in a house they rented in Roswell, Georgia. Taylor engineered and produced the LP, which came out in early 2018. Trash Panda came to a soft ending in early 2018, after the release of The Starclimber LP. The band is not currently active but are working on other projects, namely Lazuli Vane, Snakes Alive, and Thunderchimp. www.trashpandalegit.com
