Publisher Description

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.

Author Biography

Tex Perkins is a singer-songwriter born in Darwin and raised in Brisbane. His music career spans four decades and includes frontman duties in over 20 bands including Thug, The Dum-Dums, Salamander Jim, The Dark Horses and The Ape, but most famously ARIA-award winning Cruel Sea, the legendary Beasts of Bourbon, smoky trio Tex, Don & Charlie and The Ladyboyz, fifth-best covers band in the land. When he's not performing as Johnny Cash in pubs, theatres or gaols across Australia, Tex is often found hosting Rockwiz, cheering St Kilda or playing Zoneball. He lives near Byron Bay with partner Krystina, their four kids and various cows, dogs and donkeys.
