Royal Trux is an American alternative rock band active from 1987 to 2001, and which reunited in 2015. It was founded by Neil Hagerty (vocals, guitar) and Jennifer Herrema (vocals). While still a teenager, Hagerty joined Washington DC garage punk band Pussy Galore, led by Jon Spencer, and subsequently relocated to New York. During his time in there, Hagerty convinced his bandmates to release a cassette-only remake of the entire Rolling Stones album Exile on Main Street.

Royal Trux proved too eclectic for the mainstream. Royal Trux struck gold when a major label offered them a million dollars and full creative control. But as maverick outsiders, the band proved too eclectic for mainstream tastes. Herrema has been appearing in everything from the Avalanches’ comeback album to Judd Apatow’s new comedy series Love. Hagerty, meanwhile, is working with Jason Pierce of Spiritualized and Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor, both of whom place Royal Trux in the pantheon of musical masterminds. Herrema says writing new material isn’t completely out of the question but, if they did do that, it wouldn’t be like other bands trying to revisit a bygone time.

Royal Trux were officially back on the road. Weirdly recorded, weirdly mixed, their take on rock music feels mutant, radioactive – the equivalent of that three-eyed fish from The Simpsons. Ultimately, perhaps the track that sums up Royal Trux . is White Stuff’s title track. It’s a voracious anthem to tour life with triumphalist chorus: This is the way it’s supposed to be/Push me on a cart through the duty free/ Hanging and playin’ all across the land/Tellin’ everybody we’re the greatest band. But there might be a note of caution buried in there too – a warning about chemical excess from a band that have certainly lived it.

The album Royal Trux (Royal, 1988) appears to be a monumental musical paradox. Tracks like Bad Blood (on which they alternatively mimic the riff of Day Tripper, the Ventures and a blues a& la Captain Beefheart), or Zero Dok (a ballad with trembling psychedelic organ and a sobbing rhythm), or also Esso Dame, which was so driving compared to the others to seem like a voodoo-billy played by the Holy Modal. At the end of 1989 Herrema and Hagerty relocated to San Francisco, where they recorded the single Hero Zero/Love Is (Drag City), the double single with Nox Fixed Address, Spike Cyclone, Baghdad Buzz, and Sunflavor.
