2013 repress. "1998, and according to the press, Royal Trux were back in action. Given the powerful response to Accelerator, an EP would be needed soon -- and with a long European tour impending, what better time than the present? In short order, the three songs were recorded, along with a fourth, a cover of Dire Straits' 'Money for Nothing' which was set aside to be used as a B-side for a planned UK single release. The songs were a funky bunch -- 'Deafer Than Blind' was a sweet 'n' sour ballad built off a drum loop, 'Run, Shaker Life' was a Richie Havens cover with spiritual overtones and 'The United States of America vs. One 1974 Cadillac El Dorado Sedan' was a proggy group jam that featured an extensive libretto and comprised one of the longest Royal Trux song yet. The static-crisp high end of Accelerator was abandoned in favor of a smeared, bottom-heavy sound, showcasing the thunder in the stomping rhythm section and a darker tone in Hagerty's bent-neck histrionics. This was something that one might almost regard as straight-up rock in Royal Trux terms, and Neil and Jennifer harmonized in their own unique way throughout the record. 3-Song EP is now available again for the first time in almost a decade."
