“There is nothing smug or superannuated or Sting-like about him. He’s creative and sarcastic and can still wear a Wrangler shirt with mean panache. Yes, sighs the happy reader. He’s still got it.” The Weekend Australian
Singer. Songwriter. Swamp child. Soul man. Tex Perkins is a true rock’n‘roll animal. In this loud, uncut, no-holds-barred, laugh-out-loud and take-no-prisoners memoir, the enigmatic king of the Australian music underground lays bare an extraordinary life lived on the road, on the stage and on the edge. Raised a bible-thumping Catholic and beaten bloody on the streets of Brisbane for being a “cow-punk”, skinny Gregory Perkins flees to Sydney and mutates into “Tex”, rogue leader of the Dums Dums, Thug and Salamander Jim before finding a strange kind of success, celebrity, sex symboldom and icon status as Tex Perkins, snake-hipped, honey-voiced, often bloodied frontman of influential Aussie bands the Cruel Sea, Beasts of Bourbon and Tex, Don & Charlie… and inventor of “Zoneball”. Gigs. Albums. Tours. Fights. Feuds. Arrests. Drugs. High times. Low roads. This is a wild ride of a life written loudly, proudly and full of punk energy.
