How do you surmise Tex Perkins? He is an enigmatic troubadour ingrained into the Australian music psyche, but I think DC Root did it best in his song ‘I wish I was Tex Perkins’ when he wrote;
“He’s a killer with the ladies, he’s every sun kissed Aussie girls favourite kind o’ shady. Lascivious, oblivious, in his gasoline stained dacks, he waits to meet your daughter on the wrong side of the tracks. He’s every high flying business woman’s idea of rough trade, he goes on like that endless road, he just keeps getting laid!”
Team that kind of charisma with the amazing musical talents of Stephen Hadley, Murray Preston, Joel Silbersher, Gus Agars and the beguiling guitar work of Charlie Owen and you have an album that demands to be listened to…and one that after a couple of listens will have you well and truly drawn to the light!
Don’t forget, you can catch this once in a Gove lifetime opportunity to see Tex Perkins & The Dark Horses this Friday at the Arno, so do what you have to do to make sure you’ve got your ticket!
