Can you BELIEVE they tried to sell this to Virgin?

Drag City is reissuing Royal Trux's great, Stones-y, ballsy, chaotic and completely not-mainstream-commercial classic Accelerator, the album that got Hagerty and Herrema politely excused from their major label obligations and returned them to the Drag City fold. It is a pretty fantastic album, if you tend towards the messy and loosely strung... I like "I'm Ready", "Juicy Juicy Juice" and "Liar" a whole lot.

This is not, by the way, one of those stuffed-to-the-gills-with-added-materials's pretty much exactly what you would have gotten in 1998. Which is pretty good.

Are you ready?
