Tex Perkins with Matt Walker in an intimate concert. Tex Perkins has played a key role in Australian music and its 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.
The Tex, Don and Charlie albums saw Perkins join forces with the legendary Don Walker, Cold Chisel’s pianist and master songwriter, and Charlie Owen, previously Australia’s best kept musical secret. Or the TNT project, where he and contemporary Tim Rogers celebrated their long-term friendship with a little tongue-in-cheek.
With such an array of songs to choose from and new ones, Tex is looking forward to performing with Matt Walker
