Royal Trux - "Accelerator" (Drag City, 1998)

Accelerator was Royal Trux return to the indies after a post-grunge million dollar Virgin Records deal. Virgin hated their previous album, Sweet Sixteen (see album cover), so much that they dropped the band early and paid all expenses on Accelerator even though it would be released on indie label Drag City. The label fits in nicely with the 1980s hotrod theme of the album. Purchased Fall 2009 at Criminal Records in Atlanta, Georgia.
