Tex Perkins and the Fat Rubber Band
with special guest T Wildes
This show has been rescheduled to Friday 22 April.
It’s understandably difficult to pull together a coherent picture of a man whose career has included everything from Thug’s ground-breaking experimental punktonica, to the lilting, dark country of his recent material with the Dark Horses, the hard-edged and snarling pub rock of the Beasts Of Bourbon, through to the evocative soundscapes of The Cruel Sea. Their extraordinary 1991 single ‘This Is Not The Way Home’ placed Perkins’ world-weary growl in a new musical context and heralded the emergence of an entirely original yet archetypically Australian sound.
Now is Tex’s reuniting with Matt Walker for duo shows. The two have been set apart by border closures over the last 10 months, but the good news is they are on the road again. Their powerful live show features songs spanning Tex's vast catalogue, as well as brand new material they have written together for a new album to be released in 2021.
