A very welcome return for a Prancey Dog regular - Thomas Truax crafts rich, poetically evocative songs about insects, trees, technology, and a lifelong obsession with things lunar, including various reasons ‘Why Dogs Howl at The Moon’. Notable supporters and collaborators include Jarvis Cocker, Duke Special, Richard Hawley, Amanda Palmer, and the late author Terry Pratchett. Brian Viglione (of the Dresden Dolls/Violent Femmes) plays drums on Thomas’s latest studio album ‘Jetstream Sunset’.
In his “day job years” he did time as an animator for MTV‘s hit series‘Celebrity Deathmatch’ and Cartoon Network’s ‘Robot Chicken’. He “ran away with” the Toby Tyler Circus in Florida for a spell (as a billposter) before deciding he might benefit more by hanging flyers for his own act back in New York City.
