For a band who often looked like they had just rolled in from recording Exile on Main Street, Royal Trux were far too abstruse to be genuinely retro. But recent noises from Neil Hagerty--former/current/who knows? Royal Truck and now head honcho of the Howling Hex --have suggested a certain wistfulness in his dotage. "Rock and roll is what's missing in bands these days that take a generic approach to playing that's almost machine-like," he harrumphed to Rolling Stone, indulging the kind of ruefully nostalgic statement that Liam Gallagher would tape to the studio mood board.
