Tex Perkins And His Ladyboyz

Consistent with his history of less serious bands, in 2008 Tex Perkins formed a new group to release an album of covers featuring duets with other Australian musicians such as Nic Cester, Suze DeMarchi, Adalita and Jimmy Barnes. Covering popular songs from the 70s and 80s by acts such as Dr Hook and Hall and Oates, “No 1s and No 2s” was followed by tour of non-traditional rock music venues such as Sydney’s Star City Casino. Perkins has since dismissed this album as a contractual obligation – Universal Music wanted him to record a covers album, and the Ladyboyz were his passive-aggressive response.
