In the recent issue of The Wire: Adventures In Modern Music (Wire 399 / May 2017) there’s a pretty entertaining interview with the recently reunited Royal Trux. Just a random quote by Jennifer Herrema, pulled from the article: “Fuck these hobby rock or dad rock motherfuckers. This was never a hobby – it’s the way I’ve lived my entire life”. Classic stuff. Anyway, here’s the Royal Trux, in...

‘Psychocandy’ (1985) by The Jesus and Mary Chain was a big part of our teenage sonic diet, so it sure was nice to see the band perform, yesterday at Paradiso.
