ATN faves , and "hoodoo-voodoo garage punk cum rockabilly"
meisters, Royal Trux, are ensconced in their country home in the wilds of
Virginia working on their follow-up their major label debut,Thank You.
The band, who have long had a dark and dangerous reputation for living life on
the wild side, relocated to rural Virginia in late 1993, to keep themselves
away from the temptations of New York, where they were charter members of the
downtown scene, having been in Pussy Galore with Jon Spencer a lifetime ago.
But Jennifer Herrema, the stunning singer for the band, did make it up to New
York a few months ago, to pose in that spectacularly real Calvin Klein ad, with
other "ordinary people." When they did promos for the project, they asked all
the participants what they do (you know, job-wise). When they asked Herrema,
she said, "I'm Jennifer, and I'm Neil's girlfriend." Neil is Neil Hagerty, of
course, Herrema's partner in life (and crime) in Royal Trux.
