Trailer is a mini album by the band Ash featuring their first three singles. An expanded edition also includes 4 b-sides. The album was released in October, 1994 through Infectious Records. The band considered it a "trailer" for their future debut album proper, and named it accordingly.
"Uncle Pat" was featured in a Heineken advert, which helped to raise the profile of the band, both in Ireland and Britain.
The name refers to movie trailers, so as a visual pun, the cover of the album shows a toppled truck trailer.
The 'noise' at the end of the track "Get Out", when reversed, slowed down and the pitch altered, is a low quality demo version of the song "Intense Thing". This track wasn't discovered until June 2006 by 2 fans experimenting around with running different effects through Ash songs.
An early rare version of this album was released with a bonus John Peel Sessions 7" with the tracks:
Silver Surfer - 2:24
Jazz '59 - 2:06
On 6 June 1995 Trailer was released in the United States.
