Biography

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

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Jason Parkes #1 HALL OF FAME on 28 Aug. 2006
Format: Audio CD
Following early works such as 'Royal Trux', 'Twin Infinitive', 'Royal Trux', 'Hand of Glory', & 'Cats and Dogs', Royal Trux found themselves on a major label in the wake of grunge and all that. The core line-up of Neil Hagerty (ex-Pussy Galore) and girlfriend Jennifer Herrema remain, this time joined by bassist Dan Brown, drummer Chris Pyle, and percussionist Robbie Armstrong. I've been buying up lots of Trux stuff I haven't previously owned/heard, following my rediscovery of 1998's classic 'Accelerator' and the joys of the Amazon marketplace. 'Thank You' very much taps into that 1970s rock vibe much Trux touches on, but like 1999's 'Veterans of Disorder' is one of their more listenable albums - I'd certainly say those two are the best places to start with the Trux prior to a more challenging album like 'Sweet Sixteen' or 'Twin Infinitive.'

The first song 'A Night to Remember' sounds like Pussy Galore playing something from 'Appetite for Destruction', which is probably a great thing? Another surprising fact is that the producer of this album is the late Dave Briggs, a producer most associated with Neil Young, and someone who didn't appear to work very well with anyone else (witness Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds' so-so 'Henry's Dream'). There are many fine songs here - 'Ray O Vac', 'Lights on the Levee', 'The Sewers of Mars', '(Have You Met) Horror James?' etc - it's all classic stuff is you like rawk'n'roll. 'Ray O Vac' is a particular fave, the verse sung by Hagerty in the style Jack White appropriated from him prior to the song shifting into a rap from Herrema - this kind of style came to the fore on 1997's 'Sweet Sixteen.' 'You're Gonna Lose' sounds like The Stooges playing Led Zep, which has to be great, hasn't it?

Format: Audio CD
Agree with everything said in the above review although I never thought Henry's Dream was so-so. If this was someone's first Trux spin they could be forgiven for thinking that this was a(n almost) straightforward rock n roll band. Hints of Crazy Horse, the Stones, Iggy, Southern Fried Boogie on this but spewed out Truxologically. 'Map of the City' has ridiculous lyrics but is my favourite piece of music here. 'Granny Grunt' is also my favourite. 'The sewers of mars' is my favorite too. In fact most of this album is top notch special and although the most recognisable image of rock n roll the trux have done is still incredibaly imaginative and not just musically. Some of the lyric writing here is truly inspired. Buy it now while you can still get it at a reasonable price from the marketplace. Once you get into the Royal Trux all other music will seem redundant for a long time........

Royal Trux - Thank You, the first RX album I got to experience. As bizarre as it might sound, I picked the album up after being drawn towards the aged design of the CD cover, while looking around a record store, way before the arrival of the World Wide Web. At the time I also used to read a magazine called Deadline, mostly for the Tank Girl stuff. I had a mini flash-back, as I’m sure Deadline ran an article or Ad on Royal Trux..

As soon as I played the CD, I loved the sound. It’s raw. Both the male and female vocals sound like loose cannons, and the guitar rough. You’re Gonna Lose is the first track to hit home. Shadow Of The Wasp is excellent. I like the whole album..

Since then, and with the arrival of the World Wide Web, I picked up some other RX albums, including Accelerator, Cats and Dogs, Veterans of Disorder. All 3 of these albums failed to match up to Thank You

the great lost classic of 90s rock 27 Oct. 2005
By Jack_Hughes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's such a shame this stupendous record isn't more widely known. Despite (or maybe because of) the glorious scuzz of the sound, it's a true classic of honest, earthy, dirty-fingernails songwriting (just listen to the unbelievably laid-bare lyrics to "Map of the City" -- take THAT, Robert Lowell!).

Twin vocals, twin guitars and twin drums (is there a second bass on it, too?), it has the sound of a string quartet on crystal meth -- with smart percussion added as a cherry on top.

Buy it any way you can, and give your ears a much-needed cleaning: musical Drano mixed with enough essential vitamins to bring King Tut back to life, with a big smile on his skull.

such a great album 5 Nov. 2003
By doug - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is the grimiest and slimiest blues rock band you will ever hear. You can hear their influence on so many modern day garage bands out there right now. They still did it the best of course. When people compare this band to the Stones it is completely fair, but don't think they are some kind of rip off band. They do everything in their Royal Trux style and this stuff really rocks. Really great music and I highly recommend it.

Snake hips and sultry (slutty?) lips... 11 Aug. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've always thoght that this album was a lot better than people gave it credit for. I bought it as soon as it came out in 1995, as Cats & Dogs had become one of my favorites by then. It definitely grows on you, especially if you've been in one of those depression fueled funks. Thank You sounds like a cross between the Rolling Stones and Janis Joplin, only way more sinister. The Royal Trux have always had a flair for song titles, and this album is no exception. "A Night to Remember" opens up the sonic assault nicely, while "Shadow of the Wasp" closes everything out with a tempo shifting, snake-hipped jam session that terminates in an amusing miniature drum solo. "Horror James", my favorite track, sounds to me like "Sweet Jane" updated for the 1990's, and "Fear Strikes Out" could be the best Hendrix tune that Jimi never got around to writing.

By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com

i got this album when i was in 8th grade and i still pick it up today. not as good as a lot of rtx stuff (Cats and Dogs, Accelerator, Twin Infinitives) but still a really great album. imagine if the rolling stones were actually poor junkies and they rewrote some of sticky fingers to reflect that. "Shadow of the Wasp" is better than any Jagger/Richards composition since "Some Girls"

Dirty Star Swagger 30 Jan. 2014
By Furry Man of the Midwest - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Lazy journalism has invented the notion that royal trux owes heavily to the rolling stones. this might be convincing if not for the fact that the stones started out as a cover band whose career was built on the backs of traditional blues and chuck berry. one could just as easily conclude that the trux was weened on a steady diet of the pretty things or groundhogs or the velvet underground or can. then again, which trux album are you referring to? hagerty and herrema's MO was to have a fresh new line up for every recording in order for the chemistry of the band to dictate the direction of the compositions. this is more in line with the great jazz artists than anything mick or keef had the balls to do.

on this particular record, jen and neil take a live-band ensemble approach to the songs and recording - wisely utilzing the sensibilities of neil young producer david briggs - with startling results. not two songs sound alike - each has a distinct form - yet, the underlying thread throughout the album is the band chemistry. adjectives such as dirty and grimey touch on the most obvious elements. i will take it a step further and say that the stones, as great as they were circa exile and sticky fingers, never had a band the cooked like this. not did they have the sense of unbridle adventure.

i won't ruin your experience by trying to impose my subjective take on it. the rest, dear listener, is up to you.
