Shit, Drag City's finally up and running in its new digs, and what'd we find creeping out from our kitchen? Nothing but BLACK BANANAS! No, not your rotting, starchy, potassium-filled fruit - Black Bananas is Jennifer Herrema & Co.'s new band, excavated from molted peel of RTX. Why the name-change? Well, who other than Jennifer is the queen of Banana songs? And after three albums under the name RTX, Herrema and her bunch- Mckinley, Midness, Welch, and Eisenman- decided to flip the script, to kick open the doors of perception a little bit. See, RTX was not Royal Trux, not a metal band, not a 70's bar band and not a toxic substance; RTX was something, all of those things and none of them and way more, including Black Bananas - bubbling in a witchy cauldron of their own herbaceous brew. It's a new strain of the almighty green – to feed and elevate the hungry ones. Black Bananas are ripe with a full LP in the works - look for it first thing in 2012; beat your primate chest, and go bananas over Black Bananas!
