The Bridge Hotel Forth
Tex Perkins and The Fat Rubber Band
Forever the musical chameleon and demanding new challenges, Tex Perkins has moved effortlessly between Thug, The Beasts Of Bourbon, The Cruel Sea, Tex, Don & Charlie, The Dark Horses, TNT – and more recently, the theatre production of The Man In Black, starring as Johnny Cash.
Now is Tex's exciting new (and long over due) band with Matt Walker - Tex Perkins and The Fat Rubber Band. It's a blues swamp-groove kinda thing that's a little reminiscent of some of the things in Tex's back catalogue. Many new originals inhabit the setlist, but see them now while they still have to flesh out the set with a few Cruel Sea covers!
"Tex has the swagger, presence and indomitable attitude that comes from years of fronting some of Australia's most intense and spirited rock'n'roll bands. His take-no-prisoners approach to performance comes with the sensibility of an artist committed to the subtle (and often unsubtle) nuances of his craft. Throw in an astonishing voice full of power and depth, mix it with a dry and sardonic sense of humour and what emerges is the reason there is only one Tex Perkins". (Stuart Coupe).
See Tex Perkins and The Fat Rubber Band up close and personal at The Bridge Hotel, Forth on Sunday 14th April.
