Very Sad Trouser Twins: Royal Trux

Ian Christe, Alternative Press, June 1993

NEIL HAGERTY AND Jennifer Herrema are a tightly-tied 20th century Hansel and Gretel that the candy path led too far into the dark forest. Parts of them may be lost forever to the outside world. Raised in the D.C. area, Royal Trux has also taken the pair through short stays in New York, San Francisco, and Chicago, establishing a migrant operation that picked up and moved when sources of money and recording time dried up.
