Rock legends exiled from Main St by a commendable knack for career chaos, Royal Trux are the stuff of loose, lackadaisical legend. With Neil Hagerty departed, Jennifer Herrema, after two years’ down-time, brings them roaring back as hellbent three-piece RTX. Biker-chic, Satan-friendly, it’s rock’n’ roll as primal as a pulse, yet layered with sci-fi screeches and industrial intensity. Produced sloppily, it nods to Alice Cooper, yet still it makes the Yeah Yeah Yeahs sound like Texas.

Dirty in all the right crevices.
