Platinum Tips + Ice Cream is the first release from Royal Trux in 17 years, culled from two live sets recently recorded in New York and Los Angeles. if you're gonna do it, just do it, OK? Remember: You wanted this. It's not easy to return with (or recommend) a live rock 'n' roll record, but dammit, Platinum Tips is a hurling gut-punch of a document.
But if Platinum Tips + Ice Cream sees Royal Trux turn their most solid songs into something more collapsible, it also works the other way, transforming early lo-fi singles like Red Tiger and Mercury into the sort of swaggering, heavy-grooved rock jams the crudely recorded originals only implied.
Platinum Tips + Ice Cream proves it didn't take them long to tap into the barely controlled chaos of Trux: even with its relentless cowbell, "Junkie Nurse" shambles appealingly, from its slurred riffs to Hagerty and Herrema's not-quite-in-sync vocals. Offsetting the fact that this reunion is slightly miraculous is the fact that after almost two decades away, Royal Trux haven't lost any of their perversity.
Royal Trux also released the triple-LP Singles, Live, Unreleased, as well as a pair of EPs and substantial video and webwork. They separated as a couple and dissolved the band following the release of Pound for Pound. In early 2018 the band officially left Drag City and signed a new record deal with Mississippi-based indie label Fat Possum Records.
The scuzzy, gnarled ’90s trash-punk duo Royal Trux broke up in 2001, after somehow surviving in the underground long enough to get a major-label deal. Two years ago, they reunited to play the Berserktown II festival in LA, and they’ve played occasional live shows since then. Next week, they’ll release Platinum Tips + Ice Cream, their first album since Pound For Pound in 2000. The album was recorded live at the band’s LA and New York shows, and it makes for an appropriate soundtrack to apocalyptic times
