Interview with Tex Perkins
For a lot of musicians the COVID-19 lockdown has been devastating. With their live gigs cancelled many were looking down the barrel of a year with very little certainty. Tex Perkins was about to head off on a European tour with The Beasts of Bourbon, and he had a new album with Matt Walker to tour but that had to get put on hold. But Perko has been making magic in them there hills, with the creation of a unique live show, called The Show, shot in a rustic shed on the family property. What he and his crew have created is an intimate, yet rowdy evening of music, with a special guest each month, familiar faces, and new discoveries. While everyone was going on Zoom streaming from the couch, Tex was making good TV.
