Tex Perkins has played a key role in Australian music. It’s understandably difficult to pull together a coherent picture of a man whose career has taken in everything from the groundbreaking experimental punktonica of Sydney mid-80s noiseniks Thug to the lilting, dark country of his recent material with the Dark Horses.
From the hard edged pub rock of the Beasts Of Bourbons, a snarling slice of filthy pub rock to the evocative soundscapes of The Cruel Sea. Then there’s the Tex, Don and Charlie albums, which saw Perkins joining forces with the legendary Don Walker, Cold Chisel’s pianist and master songwriter and son of the Clarence Valley, and Charlie Owen, previously Australia’s best kept musical secret.
