When it comes to Australian rock royalty, it’s hard to look past Tex

Perkins.  Tex has mappedout the scene for future generations, leaving

his mark on pub -rock, folk, country and blues, all while creating his

own Australian blend and signature style. Accompanied by only the

finest guitarists and musicians, Tex has written and toured with

greats, like Don Walker and Charlie Owen, and played at the homes

of Australian rock like Bluesfest and The Gympie Muster.

Now, joining forces with long-time collaborator Matt Walker whilst

under the spell of Link Wray’s country-funk, the first Fat Rubber Band

album has come to life. Those who have been to the shows will be

familiar with the twangs and distortion – or the fire and brimstone

as they like to call it – while for those who have been following the

journey from the beginning, this is just another part of the Tex

evolution.  To warm up our ears, Tex Perkins & The Fat Rubber

Band are releasing a double-sided single, featuring two renditions

of songs that shaped the upcoming album – Allen Toussaint’s

“Everything I Do Gonna Be Funky” and Bobby Charles’ “I Must

Be in a Good Place Now”.  “Everything I Do Gonna Be Funky (from

now on)” will be available everywhere Friday, May 21.
