Listing Detail Tabs

The gravel-tainted tones of Australian Tex Perkins are instantly recognizable; the much-treasured troubadour has been a thirty-year hurricane through the music landscape. From fronting embryonic punk bands in the pubs of Brisbane, to taking out ARIAs with The Cruel Sea, and playing his hero Johnny Cash in The Man In Black musical.

Originally part of a solo project (to fulfil a recording contract) the Dark Horses had formed into a band by the release of the second album Dark Horses in 2000. Like much of Tex Perkins' musical past, Charlie Owens is a big part of the Dark Horses project but there have been many other Dark Horses contributors along the way. The magnetic dark country force that is Tex Perkins and the Dark Horses self-titled 2011 release is the first release since 2003s’ Sweet Nothing and comes almost as a surprise after Perkins commented in 2006 on ABC2's Dig program that the Cruel Sea and Dark Horses were no more. Buy this if you like; Johnny Cash, Townes Van Zandt, Ryan Adams, Nick Cave and Leonard Cohen.
