Sweet sixteen and never been cleaned All that dirt can make you vain But after everything they out you through They don't believe you. Like a flower forced to bloom Before the sun hits the ridge And here you come walking up with a smile They don't believe you. How could you explain? It couldn't seem right But f you stare at the sun long enough through a hole You can almost believe you've gone blind. But those parts ain't the same And so you remain On the wing, as the movements and shadows take out Everything that you tried to explain.
Royal Trux returned to their old label Drag City, on Drag City, the band released Accelerator, based on the rejected recordings that would have comprised their third album for Virgin.
Opening up with a riff lifted from the Allman Brothers, Sweet Sixteen is a sloppy mess, filled with grime, sleaze and filth - just like the broken toilet that graces the album's cover. While Royal Trux is now able to play these blues riffs, they don't have the desire to make them palatable. At heart, they still want to tap into what originally scared people about rock & roll, and to a certain extent they do - they are a viciously anti-social band, snarling vocals and throwing riffs out carelessly

Sweet Sixteen is even better. To the extent that I care or can be bothered to decipher 'em, the lyrics tackle the same old concerns: sex, drugs, and rock & roll in-jokes. It's the musical settings that matter. This album is the one most frequently mentioned when you ask people what turned them off of Royal Trux. Rumor even had it that the duo made this album intentionally unlistenable, for the sake of sabotaging their deal with Virgin Records. In my opinion though, it stands out as one of their better efforts.
