Boomkat Product Review:
*2014 Reissue* "An album and an EP removed from the synapse-splitting Accelerator, “The Radio Video EP” knocked our vision of Royal Trux out of focus in five quick tracks, while simultaneously morphing into a new incarnation that we might finally hope to understand in some future days (2014? Nahhh...). Dance-poppin’ Trux! But a close listen to “The Radio Video EP” will find you following a trail backwards though Royal Trux history, walking along the blared lines and stinky beats of the “Mercury” b/w “Shockwave Rider” single and the “Spike Cyclone” double 7" (both now collected on, Singles, Live, Unreleased), as well as Veterans of Disorder’s “Sickazz Dog,” for pure drooling nonsense — all abstract momentos of rude and shocking compulsions built upon hard rock and roll. Of course, this new EP wasn’t a catch-all release revisiting former poses —no, never! In keeping with Royal Trux tradition, “The Radio Video EP” was a new and hitherto untouched quantity — this time, well-machined, club-ready psych-pop, presented for the pleasure of all the people of Earth, with no discriminations. Just months away from their sudden flameout, Royal Trux were still flying high, enjoying their little plot next to the mainstream and the bridge tolls that it provided To this end, “The Inside Game” was licensed to the major motion picture High Fidelity, for two young skateboarder types to mime at in punkish, sub-Beasties style. Elsewhere, the jam and-recitation “Victory Chimp, Episode 3” (much more of which was to come a decade down the line) was recorded at an unplugged session in a downtown Chicago Borders Books & Music one autumn afternoon in 1999. The Royal Trux release of summer 2000 promised even more renegade MOR rock and roll pleasures — but time wasn’t on their side for the next round."
