    "Thomas Truax is a feisty dreamer gadgeteer, songwriter and performer...capable of crafting some very potent songs, such as the wistful 'In Barcelonely'...and 'The Butterfly and the Entomologist' on which Truax is joined by cellest Pete Harvey and violinist Meredith Yayanos (both of whom appear on other songs too, along with a few other players) is the perfect blend of his moodily manipulated instrumentation and oblique narratives. It's poetically evocative and rich with melancholy, both by dint of its sounds and the texts..."

lyrics

Lessons In Dressin'

It all dawned upon me clearly

Hitting me quite suddenly

That everyone but me has now gone crazy

Then I thought my God, no wonder I've been having difficulty

Choosing something suitable to wear

To each day carefully consider

With one's form and with one's figure

How well this one will work with the other

How will this combo be perceived

Did you see that, can you believe?

And don't forget: will it work with the weather

And then you must figure out

What tonight will be about

Sex or business, maybe both together

And when you're finally comfortable

Be it casual or formal or rock n' roll

Then something must be done about

the hair

about

Thomas Truax London, UK

"Thomas Truax crafts rich, poetically evocative songs about insects, trees, technology, and a lifelong obsession with all things lunar. He travels the world performing with his "band" of bizarre self-made instruments including a motorized drum machine made with bike wheels and a souped-up Gramophone called 'The Hornicator', as well as his venerable guitar 'Hank'.
