    Increasingly hard-to-find first 'solo' album
    "A bewildering melange of garage rock songs, avant garde sounds and cabaret showtunes, full of whistles, toy piano, ice cream chimes and invented instruments... with shades of Tom Waits' storytelling, Nick Cave's theatricality and Lux Interior's howling-at-the-moon madness. There's even yodelling on 'Shooting Stars'. That moon reference is significant as this is a sort of concept album tribute to the moon as it shines on the fictional Wowtown. Its all done in a larger than life, cartoonish way...You get the feeling that its too large a world to be contained in a small silver disk. Its a soundtrack to a film that might never be made but the mind pictures that it conjures are so evocative that maybe it doesn't need to be..." -Ged M, SoundsXP

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'.
