From the noisy demise of underground kingpins Pussy Galore came two interesting bands. The first was Jon Spencer's blues deconstruction unit, the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion; the second was Neil Hagerty and Jennifer Herrema's dissonant junkie nightmare known as Royal Trux. Interestingly, both bands started out as avant-noise combos playing little that resembled traditional rock & ... Read more in Amazon's Royal Trux Store

Product Description

Royal Trux - Pound for Pound


Nine albums down the road, Royal Trux's rebel music has taken on a life of its own. On Pound For Pound, their road trip of AM radio rhythms reconfigures southern funk and piles on the percussion to concussive levels. From the opening call and response of "Call Out The Lions", the band tune into the 10-bar boogie of "Fire Hill" and "Platinum Tips" gritty funkadelica. "Deep Country Sorceror" takes a left-turn into diabolic down-home blues (with a garbled backdrop of tunnelling echo effects). The crawling pace of "Blind Navigator" is the closest they get to a ballad; senses dulled with pain, Neil Haggerty's wild man growl rages along to prozac riffs. Further down the highway, "Small Thief" comes on like a skewed Santana track and, at journey's end, "Doctor Gone" closes the album with a cocktail of Washington go-go and Cajun ju-ju rock that segues into a sprawling banishment ritual. This is one for all the voodoo children. --Chris Campion

Well here's a thing; a Royal Trux love album in all its resplendent glory. Never have the Trux sounded so cosy and yet so seemingly inpenetrable.
My expectation was a bonkers shouty noise album along the lines of the recent Radio Video Ep but true to form the Trux decided to take another turn. Alt country blues wah wah noisecore/Carpenters vibotronic hellscream is, I feel, the most appropriate description.
These tracks are reminiscent of some the Carpenters finer moments if the Carpenters had smoked a lot more and discovered cowbells and a wah wah peddle.
Careful Britney.

This comes as a real disappointment after the excellence of Accelerator and Veterans, bringing the Trux back to the same old annoying tinny, slightly indie, boring tosh they were peddling on Thank You - and that was about seven years ago. Avoid. Oh and by the way, it's wah-wah PEDAL, you fool.
